Glenn Kessler returns to Benghazi: In our previous post, we discussed Rachel Maddow’s reaction to PolitiFact’s latest strange rating.
Maddow said PolitiFact is ruining fact-checking all by itself. Yesterday, we thought Glenn Kessler tried to do his part at his Washington Post Fact Checker site.
As you know, Benghazi is back in the news. Yesterday, Kessler linked to his original post on this topic, in which he awarded Susan Rice two Pinocchios for statements she made on the September 16 Sunday programs.
He said he thinks that, “over time,” his original post “has held up rather well.” We read it again we and thought it was awful. And we're inclined to like Kessler’s work, although we no longer know why.

Fact-checking sounds like a great idea—until you see other folk do it!
