However wait! E-book it now, with this wonderful deal:
VIP expertise: $100 (features a non-public digital blissful hour with CNN’s Brian Stelter and small group break-out classes with PolitiFact fact-checkers)
What’s a “non-public digital blissful hour”? It is not like they may give you a drink and a canape free of charge when you sit at your individual desk at residence.
This four-day Zoom pageant kicks off Monday with a panel of fact-checkers: Angie Holan, editor-in-chief of PolitiFact, Glenn Kessler, editor and chief author of the Washington Submit Truth Checker (counting 30,000-plus Trump lies to your Democrat speaking factors), and Eugene Kiely, director of FactCheck.org.

Maybe they will clarify why PolitiFact has precisely zero truth checks on Fauci statements, regardless of his status as America’s COVID skilled who has apparently by no means flip-flopped or admitted that he manipulated the thought of “herd immunity” to maintain America’s herd calm.
On Wednesday, PolitiFact government director Aaron Sharockman interviews Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va)., about Part 230 and Massive Tech.

Then on Thursday, it is “Talking the Fact — with keynote Steven Hassan.” Politifact oozes: “Hear from Steven Hassan, an American psychological well being counselor who has written as regards to thoughts management and find out how to assist individuals who have been harmed by the expertise. Hassan has written about Q, and the cult of character surrounding Donald Trump.”
In 2019, Stelter introduced Hassan on his present to advertise his ebook The Cult of Trump. “It’s horrifying to listen to a cult skilled say that you simply see all of those indicators proper now at this time in American politics,” Stelter declared. He additionally advised they wanted to be deprogrammed. “So, lastly, step one, if you happen to say it is a cult, what’s step one of deprogramming?”
Stelter’s most notorious mental-health skilled was Allen Frances, who screeched that Trump was as harmful as Hitler, Stalin, and Mao — and “could also be accountable for many extra million deaths than they have been.” Even PolitiFact felt compelled to name that “Pants on Fireplace.”
Perhaps somebody ought to ask Brian about that on the “digital non-public blissful hour.” (Or his unhappy profile pic on PolitiFact.)
