It’s time to ask PolitiFact: What is the meaning of “is”? « Hot Air: "According to Dictionary.com, the word “could” means “to express possibility” and “conditional possibility or ability.” In other words, Cruz was literally correct — and should have been given a rating of “True,” which is something PolitiFact admitted even as it gave a different rating.
More recently, PolitiFact looked at a statement by Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH), who is in a tightening race with former Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown. In an ad, Shaheen said that Brown — when he was a politician in Massachusetts — “pushed for a law to force women considering abortion — force them — to look at color photographs of developing fetuses.”
PolitiFact ranked this statement as “accurate but [needing] clarification,” and gave it a “Mostly True” rating.
However, like its Cruz rating, PolitiFact ignored its own analysis and a basic dictionary definition in giving this ranking."
