There’s been a recent dust up in the media over the truthfulness over an article decrying New York state’s requirement for stargazing permits.
In their efforts to squeeze every dime they can from the tax farm, bureaucrats in New York have devised a scheme to extort citizens who wish to use public parks to gaze upon the night sky. This extortion comes in the form of a $35.00 “Stargazing Permit.” If you are from out of state and wish to gaze upon the night sky from one of these locations that fee jumps to $60.
Shamefully, PolitiFact, an alleged fact-checking website, said this article is mostly false. Yet Snopes declared it true. This is because PolitiFact is a subsidiary farm team of the New York Times. Just as agendized, just as liberal and just as dishonest.
