about 18% of the time. The second worst place finisher was almost twice as truthful, coming in at 31% of the time.
And even of that 18 percent, only 8 percent of what they said was completely “True.” The other 10 percent was rated as “Mostly True.”

And that’s exactly what the right-wing media does.
Which is why tens of millions of conservatives believe that Fox News is a “fair and balanced” beacon of truth, despite the fact that Punditfact found only 18 percent of their comments to be factual
