Nearly every major fact-checker has completely ignored Karine Jean-Pierre since taking over for Psaki
White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre has never been fact-checked by Reuter, The Associated Press, Factcheck.org, Daniel Dale, and Glenn Kessler.

MSNBC's Jonathan Capehart did not ask White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre on Sunday about her recent claim that people were not just "walking over" the border.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre has remained largely unscathed from the fact-checking crowd since taking over the podium for Jen Psaki, with nearly every major fact-checker largely ignoring the new face of the Biden administration.

Since starting her position on May 13, Jean Pierre has received no fact-checks from Factcheck.org, Reuters, The Associated Press, The Washington Post's Glenn Kessler, and CNN's Daniel Dale, according to a review by Fox News Digital.

None of the sites or individuals responded to Fox News Digital's request for comment.

Snopes and PolitiFact stood alone in their sparse fact-checking regarding the new White House press secretary. PolitiFact has fact-checked Jean-Pierre twice, awarding her two "false" ratings, while Snopes fact-checked a claim about a past comment by her.

Yet, Jean-Pierre has made a number of dubious claims during her first four months at the podium.

In late August, Jean-Pierre claimed that illegal immigrants aren't just "walking across" the southern border, although many have.

During a press briefing, Fox News' Peter Doocy noted that thousands of migrants are pouring into the country without being vaccinated or proving their vaccination status.

"But that's not how it works," Jean-Pierre responded.

"That's what's happening," Doocy fired back. "I know that's not what you guys want to happen. But that is what is happening."

"But that's not, it's not like somebody walks over and-" Jean-Pierre replied.

"That's exactly what's happening," Doocy repeated.

Not a single fact-checking website has made mention of Jean-Pierre's comments about migrants entering the U.S. illegally.

The White House press secretary also came under fire in July after she claimed the Supreme Court's reversal of Roe v. Wade was in fact an "unconstitutional action."

"From day one, when the Supreme Court made this extreme decision to take away a constitutional right, it was an unconstitutional action by them," she said.

Only PolitiFact made note of the false statement.

Just a month later, Jean-Pierre faced backlash for denying claims that the U.S. is in a recession, or a "pre-recession," despite two consecutive quarters of negative GDP growth.

Typically, two quarters of negative GDP growth indicate the United States is in a recession. This is the metric traditionally used as a red line to determine whether a recession exists.

At the time Jean-Pierre said this: "So, if you look at the economic indicators as the president was laying out, if you look at the labor market, right now, we are seeing historic unemployment. If you look at low unemployment at 3.6, if you look at the average amount of jobs that have been created, it's about 400 [thousand] per month. Those indicators do not show that we are in a recession or even a pre-recession."

No prominent fact-checking sites or individuals called out this particular claim.

She is unprepared and overwhelmed. When she lies the same press corps that once badgered President Trump's press secretaries, now sit quietly like the little left wing stooges that they are.

It's amazing. She's an election denier which, per her boss, is an existential threat to democracy. But other than Doocy, the media ignores it

No need to fact check this administration.

Unlike the prior criminal enterprise of an 'administration' where every word out of that big fat mouth of a 'president' was a lie and therefore his press secretaries.

Lies are only acceptable when Democrats are making them.

Brandon the Human Fuck Up Machine hasn't told the truth for his entire political career.

His press secretary is worse than he is.

Leftist media are more concerned about Democrats staying in power than the well being of this country. They flushed their impartiality and ability to write the truth down the toilet long ago.

Sean Spicer lied at his first press conference as the new White House spokesman yesterday, where he took to the lectern to blame outdoor floor coverings for giving the appearance of low attendance at Trump’s inauguration ceremony.

“This was the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration, period, both in person and around the globe,” Spicer told reporters. But   aerial photographs comparing the turnout   at President Obama’s inauguration and Trump’s show massively more people in attendance in 2009.

The lead liar for the Trump administration. He was impossible to fact check since he never uttered a fact.

And again you proved the article correct.

Stop digging.

Spencer was fact checked repeatedly over and over. The left media bitched incessantly about him. Nothing he said wasn't scrutinized over, and, and over again.

They are being woke hypocrites staying silent because Karine Jeane-Pierre checks all of their stupid demographic boxes. Female, black, and lesbian. Only being a transgender would be better for her.

Karine is every damn bit as bad as Spencer ever was; and the leftist media stays silent.

What does that have to do with the whopper of a lie that people are not walking across the border?

and the glaring fact that so-called journalists don't call Jean-Pierre out or the moron she serves?

The over/under is now set at 5 total comments.

See, unlike you and Kavika, Texan and I can and have stayed on topic and not have to resort to the childish use of memes to have a conversation. 

I recommend you pay closer attention to what transpired.  How about you go back and re-read from 1 to now and MAYBE you can figure out what is going on.

When you are spewing outright bullshit like this coming from Jean-Pierre, why fact check it.  Common sense tells us she, and the rest of the administration is lying to the public.

The sad part of this is, there are people that actually believe what she's saying.

Fact checking is simply spinning for Democrats performed by left wing pundits.  Anyone who has watched a KJP presser knows the last thing left wing media wants is any attention at all paid to her.  She's cartoonishly bad at her job, having to resort to reading pre written answers that only generally relate to the actual question asked because when she speaks extemporaneously, she makes the most ridiculous, dishonest  claims.

No matter what she says, the MSM will ignore her until she can be moved to MSNBC and do what she does now, without  having to try and talk without a script.

We know Biden mandated masks.  Maybe Biden has mandated ear plugs, too.

I'm not the one who has over medicated.  Biden is the one in bed with big pharma.  And it shows.
