This statement is nothing but vaporware. It says absolutely zero. If one of my direct reports said something to me along those lines with regard to expressing factual information it would show up in their review and not in a good way.

"She never appeared to" and "As best we can tell". These are statements equivalent of guessing and would never be accepted as actual proof of ANYTHING IRL. But this is the internet so I guess it's ok.

Hmmmm. So you believe she said that? About stores and agriculture?

Funny enough, that was my interpretation on it too. It isn't providing any facts to rebut the claim, at the same time though, there is no support for the claim either. There's just a big old nothing on both sides.

Now if the side that said she said that provided video evidence, recordings, or something...anything really, then one could make a better determination of whether it occurred. Plus there would actually be evidence to examine. As it is, neither side has presented any evidence, and the evidence really needs to come from the side that said she made that statement.

I don't think he's saying that. Just saying this "fact check" gives no evidence either way. It has just as much substance as the original claim that she said that...being no substance at all.

But the onus to provide evidence lies on the original party making the claim as far as I'm concerned.

gullibility - Dictionary Definition : Vocabulary.com
https://www.vocabulary.com/dictionary/gullibility
Gullibility is the quality of believing in things too quickly. Someone with a lot of gullibility can be easily tricked. ... in response, then you are proving to be gullible: a little too ready to believe what you hear. The word for this quality or tendency is gullibility. Being superstitious shows gullibility.

I'm saying that the fact check, isn't. Quite simple.

The meme, however, attempts to feed off of some Mandela Effect confusion of related events. Abrams took on some backlash for her suggestion that “I want to create a lot of different jobs because people shouldn’t have to go into agriculture or hospitality to make a living in Georgia.”


The candidate later clarified in (where else?) a tweet that her “point is that we must continue to diversify our economy and raise wages across the board.”

Perhaps some of the 15,000 folks who shared the false quote remembered hearing something about “agriculture ... Stacey Abrams ... gaffe” but didn’t bother to examine the question more closely. What a shame.

Snopes was inaccurate. That was my point.
It seems that The Weekly Standard was a bit more granular in their research than Snopes. What a surprise.

I didn't post snopes. It was politifact, and the weekly standard. Though Snopes does tend to be factual. Especially compared to alt-right sights.
