AOC Whines About Fact Checks; Fact Checker Punches Back

Yesterday our favorite socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez went on a Twitter rant, whining about being fact checked.
She’s so used to media adoration from the left, she threw a tantrum over a couple of leftist outlets that dared to fact-check her often ridiculous statements.
Take a look at this, it’s obvious Ms. Ocasio-Cortez is snapping under all the pressure:

Facts are facts, America. We should care about getting things right. Yet standards of who gets fact-checked, how often + why are unclear.

This is where false equivalency+bias creeps in, allowing climate deniers to be put on par w/scientists, for example.https://www.salon.com/2018/12/09/fact-check-false-equivalence-washington-post-rates-ocasio-cortez-as-bad-as-trump/ …

For example, it looks like @PolitiFact has fact-checked Sarah Huckabee Sanders and myself the *same* amount of times: 6.

She’s been serving for almost 2 years. I’ve served 4 days.

Why is she fact-checked so little? Is she adhering to some standard we don’t know about?

Or why did @washingtonpost give my confusing tweet on military accounting offsets the same “Pinocchios” as Trump’s flat denial of how many Americans died in Puerto Rico?

These are legitimate questions not intended to attack. Who makes these decisions? How? Is there a rubric?

Another question for @politifact: some officials’ statements (ex. Andrew Cuomo) get rated “true” frequently.

I say true things all the time – I’d hope most do. When does Politifact choose to rate true statements?

Is there a guide? I’d be happy to repost if there is.

This is where I’m seeing those numbers of checks:

This is helpful! Thank you.

I do think it is important to point out that there is still admitted discretion: “we select the most newsworthy+significant ones.”

That means no real standard. So it’s still fair to ask why a controversial WH Press Sec is getting let off so easy.
