Am I? Is that your opinion or is it fact?But you are still only relying on your opinion.
Seems like you're drawing lines out of convenience.
Sorry, but have you been paying attention? PolitiFact arbitrarily dismissed the opinion of its best-qualified expert. Or if it wasn't arbitrary it at least wasn't explained. How would you justify either action? It's like, "Just trust us. We're fact checkers so what we put in our stories is just the facts." If they put "fact check" over their opinion do you just accept it as gospel? Explain for me, please.As is politifact relies on opinions of experts (take it or leave it, you don't have to like it)
Okay, so in that case we've got a fact checker putting a truth rating on something "entirely subjective." But that's perfectly okay? Shouldn't we want fact checkers to rule on matters of fact rather than things that are "entirely subjective" and/or "silly"?Unless... there is a law somewhere that stipulates what the legal definition of a presidential apology must contain, this issue is entirely subjective and silly.
No, it doesn't. What's your point, other than to prove you can take a quotation out of context just as well as the next guy?Apologies "not intended to smooth things over" ... that doesn't sound like an apology then does it?
