Election analyst Nate Silver accused House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of lying to Democratic donors about her party’s chances of winning the Senate in the 2022 midterms.
Even thinking that Nancy Pelosi would lie about something is shocking, isn’t it?
It sounds like she’s trying to keep cash flow by keeping people’s hopes alive.

‘Straightforward misinformation’: Nancy Pelosi lied to donors about Democrats’ midterm chances, says election analyst
FiveThirtyEight founder Nate Silver said Tuesday that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) lied about election forecaster FiveThirtyEight’s predictions in multiple Senate races in a recent fundraising email.
“Nate Silver’s FiveThirtyEight just announced that Democrats are poised to win six Senate seats this November,” Pelosi wrote in an email, falsely saying the site predicted Democrats in Pennsylvania, Georgia, Florida , Nevada, New Hampshire and Ohio were victorious.
“This is straight misinformation,” Silver responded on Twitter. “In Florida and Ohio, our Democrats are serious losers.”
Pelosi, who often sends emotional campaign emails, has a long history of making false or misleading statements. Pelosi’s recent attempt to justify the inflation surge under President Joe Biden by saying “inflation goes up when unemployment goes down,” PolitiFact argues is mostly false and dismisses it as Blame the Russian invasion of Ukraine. According to the Washington Freedom Beacon, Biden’s inflation began to soar in the months before the Russian invasion.

Yes, this is straight misinformation from Pelosi. In Florida and Ohio, our Democrats are serious losers. https://t.co/7IZmaxVRYR

This seems to be important now.
How did we get to the point where articles marked “fact-checking” are almost always not about the facts themselves, but about whether the facts are surrounded by the right context or vibe?

So Nancy Pelosi is spreading misinformation?
Don’t the Democrats claim to be very concerned about this sort of thing?
