Last year, Republican Senator Tom Cotton criticized the Biden amdinistration, saying that terrorists would receive stimulus checks.
Liberal media outlets like the Washington Post ridiculed Cotton for saying this, claiming it wasn’t true, but it is.
Now the Washington Post is eating crow.
Sen. Cotton Calls Out Dems, WashPost on Boston Bomber Getting $1,400 Stimulus Check
Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., delivered a “told you so” to Senate Democrats and The Washington Post on Thursday as it has been revealed the Boston Marathon bomber received a $1,400 stimulus check from the Biden administration.
“Now that the Boston Bomber received his stimulus check from Biden’s slush fund, I’m looking forward to the @washingtonpost updating this fact check,” Cotton tweeted Thursday. “Remember — every Democratic Senator voted against my amendment that would have stopped prisoners from getting checks.”
The Post had ridiculed Cotton’s amendment to stop prisoners from getting a COVID-19 stimulus check, calling it “scaremongering” in a March 9 “fact check.”…
“Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the Boston Bomber, murdered three people and terrorized a city,” Cotton also predicted via tweet. “He’ll be getting a $1,400 stimulus check as part of the Democrats’ ‘COVID relief’ bill.”
But Cotton was vindicated Wednesday as Massachusetts district court judge George O’Toole on Wednesday ordered Dzhokhar Tsarnaev to give back the payment he received in prison in June 2021, The Washington Free Beacon reported.
So the liberal media was wrong again. What a surprise.
It turns out Tom Cotton predicted correctly — Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the Boston bomber, did get a stimulus check. So we've adjusted the Pinocchio rating on this 2021 fact check. https://t.co/L87j8TvFjn

What value is there in a "fact checker" if they attempt to check a statement that cannot yet be verified? When the fact checker is wrong – even when they apologize (and this is not a direct apology), they cannot undo the damage from insisting only they are the arbiters of truth.

Does the liberal media ever get tired of being wrong?
