Instead of “fact-checking” President Joe Biden with the same ferocity they’d directed toward his predecessor, establishment press outlets like the Associated Press keep cutting the current president breaks.

In response to the president falsely claiming on Thursday that Americans will save $500 per month once America has fully transitioned to “clean energy,” the AP rushed to publish a “fact-check” accusing him of having …. “misspoke.”

“If your home is powered by safer, cheaper, cleaner electricity, like solar or heat pumps, you can save about $500 a month on average,” the president said while delivering remarks from the Eisenhower Executive Office Building.

Listen:

The claim was false, as even the AP gently admitted in its “fact-check.”

“President Joe Biden vastly overpromised Thursday when he told Americans they can expect savings of $500 a month by transitioning to renewable energy. It’s possible they might save that much over a year, not per month,” the “fact-check” reads.

Over on Twitter, the AP went even softer on the president, writing that “he misspoke.”

Look:

Critics were left aghast at the AP’s word choice because of the evidence-backed belief that, were Trump still in office, the outlet would have used much stronger words to describe the president’s veritable lie:

The AP’s prior “fact-checks” strongly suggest this isn’t a one-time occurrence.

Last summer, the president falsely guaranteed COVID vaccine participants full protection from COVID, saying “If you’re vaccinated, you’re not going to be hospitalized, you’re not going to be in the IC unit and you’re not going to die.”

The president made the remark during a July 21st CNN town hall, despite his own administration having already at that point tallied nearly 5,500 vaccinated Americans who’d tested positive for COVID and were either hospitalized or dead.

But instead of just accusing the president of lying, the AP again sought to downplay his false rhetoric by claiming he’d simply gone “too far”:

Look:

This is likewise the same news organization that keeps referring to Florida’s Parental Rights in Education bill as the “Don’t Say Gay” bill.

“Don’t Say Gay” is a Democrat Party-created nickname for the bill that distorts the bill’s true meaning and purpose. And indeed, when presented with the truth about the bill, even Democrats tend to support it:

Yet the AP and other establishment outlets keep using the Democrat’s nickname for the bill, presumably because, critics argue, they want the majority of Americans to believe the Democrat Party’s false narrative about the bill:
