Walker In Rare "Half True" PolitiFact Territory, But Hold Your Applause
The Journal Sentinel's rating service finds Walker's language about budgets and taxes in a recall push-back ad to be "half-true."
Walker partisans may be turning handstands over "half true," since his total PolitiFact record is in "false" categories more often than scorings with the word "true" - - by a 2:1 margin.
And try that "half-true" standard with the John Doe prosecutor and judge and see how far that gets ya.
Walker's statements by ruling
- Mostly True4(4)
- Half True5(5)
- Mostly False7(7)
- Pants on Fire3(3
Since the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel is a highly partisan paper PolitiFact should give its franchise to a real Wisconsin newspaper.
Imagine what the numbers would look like then.
