PolitiFact, which bills itself as nonpartisan, has been exposed on yet another untruth against a Republican. Back during the 2012 campaign, Mitt Romney stated that Fiat would be building Jeeps in China and was quickly criticized for lying. PolitiFact even went so far as to give it "Lie of the Year".
It turns out Romney was correct, and PolitiFact was lying. Apparently this is not the first time that PolitiFact has been discredited for its "fact-checking" against Republicans.
If you're relying on PolitiFact to get the truth, you may want to get a fact checker to check the fact checkers over at PolitiFact.
REUTERS DEBUNKS POLITIFACT; FIAT WILL BUILD JEEPS IN CHINA

On Sunday, Reuters reported Fiat and Chrysler, which Fiat owns, are on the verge of signing an agreement to produce Jeeps in China, and they may make the announcement as early as Monday at the Detroit Auto Show:
Italian carmaker Fiat and its U.S. unit Chrysler are set to sign a new agreement with Guangzhou Automobile Group Co to produce the Jeep vehicle for the Chinese market, Il Corriere della Sera said on Sunday.
In an unsourced article, the Corriere said the head of Fiat and Chrysler Sergio Marchionne could announce the agreement at the Detroit auto show, which kicks off on Monday.
Under the agreement, off-road vehicles under the Jeep brand will be produced at GAC's Canton factory, the paper said.
