Washington Post Fact Check reporter Michelle Ye Hee Lee has responded via Twitter (@myhlee) to “In which we award Michelle Ye Hee Lee is awarded one Rather.” She followed up with another tweet stating that she has consistently applied the Pinocchio ratings to claims she checks (I didn’t raise any issue of consistency). She also invited me to follow up with any questions by email.
I thought readers might be interested in her response (below). Ms. Ye Hee Lee does not take up Glenn Thrush’s Politico Magazine article on the status of Al Sharpton as the White House’s go-to man on race.
As with Post Fact Check editor Glenn Kessler, whose response we posted here, I am pleased to submit the matter to the consideration of our readers and appreciate the courtesy of her response.
