Bhtv was supposed to be different from Fox News and others, no? If you don't have a simple fact checking then people (specially those ideologically committed) will start to disagree on reality which is horrible to watch and then you get outlets who only show you their own version of reality ...

I love and greatly appreciate Bob and his staff, but I suspect the most they will consider doing is reprimanding you for using the "L" word (lie). Bob has explained on many occasions that the "L" word is unacceptable discourse.
Well if that were to happen I would be very disappointed but not very surprised. It kind of fits with Bob's worldview: actual existing evil is to be tolerated but the word evil should not be used, actually lying can be overlooked but using the word lie is not permitted.

@Bob: in case I am going to get a reprimand I would say that the first time around I gave her the benefit of the doubt and explained in detail why she was wrong. The second time around she just doubled down, what do you do? How do you argue with someone that denies reality, without calling them a liar?
