WaPo's "fact" checker attempts to fact-check Ron DeSantis over the San Francisco poop map, does sh*ty job
The highlight of the Great State Debate was when Ron DeSantis pulled out a copy of the infamous "San Francisco Poop Map" to show current California Governor and former San Fran Mayor Gavin Newsom how sh*tty the streets of California are. Enter Washington Post "fact" checker Philip Bump to save the day with an explainer on how to REALLY read the poop map.
Not since the "fact" checking of Joe Biden's alleged "MY BUTT'S BEEN WIPED" video has one man so encapsulated how sh*ty the "fact" checking industry is.
First, a flashback to 2018...
The Human Wasteland Project created an app to allow people to track what parts of San Francisco had reported incidents of human dookie on the streets so that they could avoid those areas. At the time, St. George Alley alone was said to harbor up to "30 piles of poop per week."
The map charts all of the locations for human excrement “incidents” reported to the San Francisco police during a given month. The interactive map shows the precise locations of the incidents by marking them with poop emojis.
The poop map has been a resource for illustrating how full of sh*t progressive politicians are in their policies. DeSantis flung the map in Newsom's face during the debate.
Now THAT is a lot of poop! Or is it? Do your journalisming all over us, Philip.
Well, sort of. In reality, almost the whole thing is covered because the map — which is a real thing — chooses to depict the human feces with very large markers. It’s a good example of how seemingly objective maps can, depending on presentation, be very misleading.
That is not what the actual map looks like, though. What’s above is an image pretty clearly meant to heighten the sense that San Francisco is buried under mounds of excrement which, multiple people (and this webcam) can attest, is not the case.
I confirmed via the webcam that the harbor is not LITERALLY covered in feces. There also weren't pirates raiding the boats at the time either.
Two key issues with Bump's crappy analysis. One is that the "fact" checking turd needs to be fact-checked.
The other is that he steps in it by missing the point. It's not the size of the poop emoji on the map. It's the fact that there is so much human excrement on the streets that a map such as this is deemed necessary. Decades and decades of progressive control have left San Francisco covered in sh*t. Not to mention, riddled with crime. It was the entire point of a debate between red-state policies vs. blue-state policies.
Philip Bump is nitpicking over an image of sh*t. Meanwhile, the real sh*t are the policies his Democrat Party has passed along the way.
Brodigan is Grand Poobah of this here website and when he isn't writing words about things enjoys day drinking, pro-wrestling, and country music. You can find him on the Twitter too.
