Fact Checking the Fact Checkers (Steve Kirsch)

One of the downsides of telling the truth in this environment is that it seems everyone and their brother wants to tear all your arguments to shreds…I could spend full time just refuting all the hit pieces written about the content I’ve produced…Rather than address every point of every fact check, here is a checklist for things that a thorough fact checker should be able to answer, but can’t or won’t. Note that this is a quick list I put together in about 30 minutes. There are more, but you get the idea. (This is a fantastic list…my experiences talking with people align with Kirsch…very difficult overcome the fake stuff.)
