While we already knew The Washington Post catered to liberals and the Democrat Party but now they’re admitting themselves. WaPo’s infamous fact-checker Glenn Kessler has announced the publication will not maintain a fact-checking database for the remainder of President Biden’s term to track his falsehoods. The Post had a database of former President Donald Trump’s falsehoods during his entire term in office.
Here's the Biden database — which we do not plan to extend beyond 100 days. I have learned my lesson. https://t.co/qK42PRlnrS

Fox News reports:
“I have learned my lesson,” Kessler tweeted. “‘Learned my lesson’ means who knows what the next four years will bring.”
In a writeup in the soon-to-be-mothballed database, the Post wrote the “Joe Biden era has offered a return to a more typical pattern when it comes to a commander in chief and his relationship with the facts — one that features frequent spin and obfuscation or exaggeration, with the occasional canard.”
Kessler said the Post’s section was the most “comprehensive” fact-checking outlet of Biden’s presidency to date and encouraged readers to send him any Biden falsehoods his team may have missed from the first 100 days.
The Post counted 67 falsehoods from Biden in his first 100 days, chief among them his repeated, “Four-Pinocchio” claim that the new Georgia voting law limited early voting hours. Biden also compared the law to racist “Jim Crow” segregation.
Naturally, Twitter users quickly called out WaPo for the obviously biased decision to end the database after Biden’s 100-day mark while going after Trump throughout his entire term.
Whew what an incredible 100 days presidency.
