The Anatomy of a Fact

October 10, 2021

In this episode, we examine the "fact-checkers."

They claim to be non-partisan... is this true? And who funds them?

We also talk about how words are often manipulated to turn a truth into a lie.

Why did we decide to talk about fact-checkers? Because truth matters.

We live in a world that tries to lead with lies, but freedom is not found in lies, it is found in truth.

Truth has no agenda. Lies always do.
