The Left have been going after Ron DeSantis for years.
Anything he says or does gets twisted intentionally by the Democrats and their media allies.
Now, the Democrat Media complex ended up with egg on its faces after trying to slam DeSantis again.
The Democrats and their media allies are deeply concerned that legacy institutions are losing their credibility.
In an attempt to gain it back, the establishment is attempting to boost legacy media while discrediting counter-narrative voices, and one of the establishment’s main weapons is so-called “fact-checking” organizations.
Sites like Politifact give off the air of impartiality, but in reality, they’re just another part of the Democrat Media Complex that serves as attack dogs for the Left.
Politifact’s latest attack focused on one statement from Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.
When speaking to a group of students, DeSantis told them they could take off their masks if they wanted because it was all COVID “theater.”

The Left went nuts and even tracked down the mother of one of the boys who took off his mask.
And Politifact tried to twist the knife by giving a “false” rating to DeSantis’s statement that wearing masks is “COVID theater” and “not doing anything.”
First, the students were wearing cloth masks, and even CNN medical expert Dr. Leana Wen called cloth masks nothing more than “facial decorations.”
Further, studies on the efficacy of masks are suspect at best, and apply to properly worn N95 or KN95 masks.
If N95 and KN95 masks are improperly worn, i.e. how most non-surgeons wear them, then they are not effective.
They can even do more harm than good because they end up becoming basically petri dishes strapped to your face.
Also, young students are largely not susceptible to COVID—the age demographic is actually more vulnerable to the flu.
Finally, many Democrats have been caught not just maskless, but blatantly engaging in COVID theater.
For example, Pennsylvania State Rep. Wendy Ullman got caught on a hot mic talking with Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf about how they can just put their masks on when the cameras start rolling.
Ullman even used the phrase “political theater.”

The Biden administration is making clear they want the public to believe a few loosened COVID restrictions means Democrats are pushing a return to freedom. When in fact, Democrats have balked at actually rolling many of them back.
The hacks at Politifact either haven’t caught on to the “new narrative” yet, or they’re just ahead on pushing the next one.
