Objectivity 4.7 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.8

Multiple mainstream media fact checkers said that President Joe Biden made a series of misleading claims during his State of the Union address on Tuesday. The Washington Post pointed out 13 misleading claims, including Biden’s claim about the largest deficit reduction his administration made in American history. “Biden misleadingly claims to have lowered the deficit by a huge amount even though his policies have added significantly to the national debt. How is this possible? Welcome to federal budget magic” the Post reported. FactCheck.org, a nonpartisan, fact-checking website, called Biden’s job growth claims misleading, as job growth “was fueled by a post-pandemic recovery that started under his predecessor.”
