Full speed ahead: PolitiFact continues to ignore selection bias problems

Apparently PolitiFact's "report cards" for candidates serve as a popular feature.

Why else would PolitiFact ignore its founding editor's inability to explain how PolitiFact avoids selection bias in its rankings and continue to push the report cards on its readers?

Extolling the value of these report cards serves as just one more area where PolitiFact slips over the line from objective news reporting into opinion journalism.
