Fact Check Check

On November 6th Michael Dobbs wrote an entertaining article on UFOs and Kucinic (easy) Richardson (interesting) and Clinton (added because according to the Clinton rules it is always OK to dump on Clintons).

He wrote

"Rightly or wrongly, UFO researchers see Hillary Clinton as a possible ally in the fight to declassify government records on alien activity."

This is not fact checking, this is not reporting, this is associating Clinton with a nut case with no justification whatsoever. The headline (not written by Dobbs) is "Aliens Support Clinton, Richardson." The article is illustrated with a photo of Richardson and Clinton but not Kucinic.
I had to read the article to make sure that it contains no evidence at all that undermines Clinton's credibility.

The November 6th "Fact Check" strongly implies something false.

I give the Fact Check 3 Pinocchios.
