The mainstream media has refused to fact-check Joe Biden on a consistent basis.
Shockingly, one of his most recent mistakes was so bad, his own campaign fact-checked it before “60 Minutes” even thought about correcting its own story.
The mistake… Biden’s estimate for “free” college was underestimated by a full 100 percent.
Free Education Isn’t So Free
During Biden’s “60 Minutes” interview, Biden estimated the cost of a “free” four-year education in this country at $150 billion.
Biden stated, “I can send every single qualified person to a four-year college in their state for $150 billion.
“I can make sure every single person who qualifies for community college can go and we still have a lotta money left over.
“That’s what I mean by significant institutional changes.”
“60 Minutes” failed to verify that number prior to airing the interview, but the number was clearly wrong and opening the door to more criticisms of the Biden campaign selling a false bill of goods to the American people.
Trying to beat Republicans to the punch, Biden’s campaign owned up to the mistake, revealing that the actual cost of the program is about double what Biden stated during his interview.
Now matter how you state it, though, something that costs $150 billion or $300 billion is NOT free.
