Most Awesomest Fact Check Ever

This is real. I have to note that because it's going to look like a sarcastic parody I did. But the quoted material is real.

The Washington Post fact-checks the RNC's claim:

“For far too long women have been left behind in Obama’s job market. Of the 740,000 jobs lost since Obama took office, 683,000 of them were held by women. That is truly unsustainable.”

Here's their conclusion:

The Pinocchio Test

We cannot fault the RNC’s math, as the numbers add up. But at this point this figure doesn’t mean very much. It may simply a function of a coincidence of timing — a brief blip that could have little to do with “Obama’s job market.”

If trends hold up over the next few months, then the RNC might have a better case. But at this point we will give this statistic our rarely used label:

TRUE BUT FALSE

Men are being BADLY impacted by the economy. I think the difference is that women lose their jobs, but are able to find other work in one way or another. Men, on the other hand, are struggling with pervasive, ongoing unemployment.

But just as Democrats prefer to measure job growth starting with the
period when positive job growth started, Republicans prefer to date
Obama’s performance from the moment he took office, as the economy was
shedding hundreds of thousands of jobs a month.



They should measure it from the time the Dems took both houses of Congress in 2007.

According to WaPo, the statistic the RNC cites might just be a blip, but, "(i)f trends hold up over the next few months, then the RNC might have a better case."

Okay, so... three years worth of data is somehow irrelevant, but a few months would make it clear?

I'm assuming they mean that the bulk of those lost jobs might have been lost in a single clump and that the distribution of job losses isn't even across all three years. But that's a pretty dumb assumption. If they're going to assume that, can't they do some "fact checking" and look at the numbers to judge if that's the case? Is that not what fact checking is?

133 I'm sorry it's 39 months. And this is my favorite part of the opinion piece

But there is less to this stat than meets the eye. First of all, why start in January? Obama, after all took office on January 20. If you start the data in February, then the overall job loss is just 16,000 jobs—while women lost 484,000 jobs. (We should note that in a previous column we said that, by picking January, the RNC was using a relative common measure of job growth during a presidency.)

So in the past it was ok to use January as a starting point but now that the RNC is flipping the "war on women" it is a bad place to start.

You would think it would be a fairly even distribution according to the actual percentage of men vs. women in the workforce, right?

There's the story. Tie this number directly back to a policy, not just a date. The RNC is only telling half of the story. That's why the WaPo even attempted these gymnastics, because they claim the "start date" is arbitrary depending on whose side you happen to be on.

If someone were to say, "People point to George W Bush as a tax-cutter, but, in reality, Tax Revenues were up under George Bush..." that would be true but (potentially, based on context) misleading. Yes, tax revenue went up under GWB, but that was because of cutting the tax rates.

They're claiming this is "True but False," which would be the same thing, except they're lying about the "but False" part of that. Every particular- including the connotations of the RNC Claim- is true, but they don't like that, and they're desperate to save the SCOAMT.

230 I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."

So far in April, nine American service members have made the ultimate sacrifice in Afghanistan while upholding the patriotic pledge that millions of schoolchildren recite each morning.

Staff Sgt. Tyler Smith, 24, Licking, Missouri
Staff Sgt. Christopher Brown, 26, Columbus, Ohio
Capt. Nicholas Rozanski, 36, Dublin, Ohio
Sgt. 1st Class Jeffrey Rieck, 45, Columbus, Ohio
Sgt. 1st Class Shawn Hannon, 44, Grove City, Ohio
Spc. Jeffrey White Jr., 21, Catawissa, Missouri
Cpl. Alex Martinez, 21, Elgin, Illinois
Spc. Antonio Burnside, 31, Great Falls, Montana

The ninth warrior, Cpl. Christopher Bordoni, 21, died in the hospital after being wounded in the same Jan. 18 terrorist attack that killed Cpl. Philip McGeath, who was remembered on this blog last month. Cpl. Bordoni, a brave Marine from Ithaca, New York, tragically succumbed to his injuries on Apr. 3.

With our nation still at war, let us make another solemn pledge. We will never forget all the valiant men and women who gave their last measure of devotion to the cause of freedom. As their families experience unimaginable pain and grief, let us also pray that they find some measure of comfort.

Our Father who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come.
Thy will be done
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us,
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.

Posted by: Buzzsaw at April 10, 2012 01:51 PM (tf9Ne)

289 The fact check sites need to stop using "true" and "false." That is the inevitable conclusion.

What they mean is whether a proposition is "supported by the currently available evidence." Something could be 100% true, but for whatever reason, the data is not at arm's length, so they call it "false." Most readers are not savvy enough to pick up on this, I wager.

An additional problem is they shift from one proposition to another or refer to "context". Context is very important for purposes of fact-checking, but easily misleads readers and invites bias.

That is why the RNC's statement is found to be factually true, but then the fact-checker decides to take issue with the definition of "Obama's job market" (and ends up making no solid conclusion, though conceding the RNC's definition is standard). The fact-checker differentiates between job losses by women and lagging job recovery of women. Not because it pertained to the RNC's statement really, but because the fact-checker was confused.

To find falsity, the fact-checker must (rhetorically) ask, "Is this a function of Obama’s policies?"

The conclusion, of course, is that, "It’s unclear at this point, but
it certainly is an under-reported phenomenon that the RNC, in its use of
this statistic, is trying to highlight."

So we are not even allowed a reasonable inference that Obama's policies have created an environment in which women have fewer jobs than they did at the start of his term. Not because the facts aren't there, but because the statement did not make a sufficiently clear causal link.

We are not even allowed to suggest that there were policies which could have been implemented to address this disparity. This is the fact-checker's biggest blind-spot. Is the fact-checker asserting that we not only don't know yet if Obama's policies caused this problem but that there was nothing he could have done? Then we must shrug our shoulders, toss our hands in the air, and mutter, "I guess we'll never know."

And that's the standard for concluding the RNC is spreading a (true) falsehood.

Even their "debunking" backs the original claim- women have fared worse under Obama's policies than men. About the best they can come up with is "Well, men lost a lot more jobs earlier!" Which, it seems to me, is rather like the Journalistic version of "I know you are, but what am I?"

355 @yankee thanks for the laugh... sometimes I am envious of the left and the kind of crap they can get away with because of the Media.

*Drowned a young girl while drunk? That wont hurt your reelection
*You called the first black president clean with no negro dialect? No you can control the senate or be vice president.. its cool we got you covered.
*Your guy started a war on religious freedom? Thats cool well just call it a war on women.
*Your president and house and senate leader pushed for the bailouts? That's cool well blame the last guy (they threatened into doing it) and the tea party.

Nah dont worry about it, in exchange we just don't want to be against the wall in the revolution and also... ummm since we are going to lose a lot of readers being that shameless.... make sure some stimulus (lol still laughing about that) and the big money guys keep us afloat, like the Mr Slim did for the NYT.

Also we should all now buttfuck each other and pray to satan to seal the deal.
