PolitiFact Fact-Checks Clay’s Super Bowl Mask Take, And Clay Wins In Court Of Popular Opinion

The “Home of the Truth-o-Meter” has rebranded into the “Beach House of Bullsh*t.”

Politifact’s skewed analysis was on full display Friday when the outlet released an article playing defense for the ongoing mask mandates on children enforced in Los Angeles County.

The article attempted to fact-check an assertion vigorously seconded by OutKick’s own Clay Travis: to call out the hypocrisy between maskless adults in power and masked-up children in school.

And after watching nearly 70,000 maskless fans crowding SoFi Stadium on Super Bowl Sunday while kids in the same city arrived at school the next day forced to wear masks, Travis’ point was made even stronger.

In the article, Politifact argued that CT’s claim “ignored the safety rules in place at the stadium, which included a mix of mask, vaccination and testing requirements.”

While the clause served the purpose of meeting a character limit, it was entirely off the mark on what two years of data have informed the public regarding masks, vaccines and the spread of COVID-19.

Most commonly worn masks among the public contain 10 percent of COVID viral load, while the slate of FDA-approved vaccines has yet to produce any effect on controlling the spread.

Travis grilled Politifact for the ice-cold take on Sunday:

“PolitiFact is ‘fact-checking’ my opinion that if virtually everyone in the Super Bowl can attend the game without wearing masks on Sunday — in violation of the Super Bowl stadium mask mandate — then it’s absurd that kids should have to wear masks in schools on Monday.”

    • You are the Donkey Ball:

      The donkey told the tiger:
      ′′The grass is blue”.
      The tiger replied:
      ′′No, the grass is green”.
      The discussion became heated up, and the two decided to submit the issue to arbitration, and to do so they approached the lion, King of the Jungle.
      Before reaching the clearing in the forest where the lion was sitting on his throne, the donkey started screaming:
      ′′Your Highness, is it true that grass is blue?”.
      The lion replied:
      “True, the grass is blue”.
      The donkey rushed forward and continued:
      ′′The tiger disagrees with me and contradicts me and annoys me please punish him”.
      The king then declared:
      ′′The tiger will be punished with 5 years of silence”.
      The donkey jumped for joy and went on his way, content and repeating:
      ′′The grass is blue”…
      The tiger accepted his punishment, but he asked the lion:
      ′′Your Majesty, why have you punished me, after all, the grass is green?”
      The lion replied:
      ′′In fact, the grass is green”.
      The tiger asked:
      ′′So why do you punish me?”
      The lion replied:
      ′′That has nothing to do with the question of whether the grass is blue or green. The punishment is because it is not possible for a brave, intelligent creature like you to waste time arguing with a donkey, and on top of that to come and bother me with that question”.
      The worst waste of time is arguing with the fool and fanatic who doesn’t care about truth or reality, but only the victory of their beliefs and illusions. Never waste time on discussions that make no sense… There are people who for all the evidence presented to them, do not have the ability to understand, and others who are blinded by ego, hatred and resentment, and the only thing that they want is to be right even if they aren’t. When ignorance screams, intelligence shuts up. Your peace and tranquility are worth more.
