5. you call that "fact checking" ?

Propaganda. DNC propaganda, to be specific.

9. The original question in the OP was

“Did any of the networks fact check...” Last I checked, NBC was one of the “networks.” Now, if the OP wishes to move the goalposts, that’s not my problem.

11. Except what they did is not fact checking in the sense that

it is for everyone else.

Softball fake media bullshit.

12. Then the OP should have read

“Did any of the networks fact check up to my standards...” Partisans of either stripe will never be satisfied with the level of criticism of their opponents by third parties.

13. Not my standards,

just similar standards to those used elsewhere.

Reasoned objective ones will.

6. let's have a look at "man of the worlds" response and actually fact check the "fact check"

- "They have been willing to spend money on other border security measures"

Fact: throwing money at "border security" is a political move. Doing something that would actually work is not on their agenda. Resist Trump is the ONLY agenda.

- "The facts: Nearly 60 percent of immigrants arrested at the border..."

completely IGNORES the ones that creeped in and didn't get stopped... that number is likely at LEAST equal to the ones who got stopped, so they counted nothing valid. The criminals aren't going to try moving through a port or swim across in broad daylight.

- "only a few had criminal records"

"a few" is three. the "fact checkers" aren't really distributing facts here. it's propaganda
I won't even address their conviction numbers because as in the above, they are only counting the ones they CAUGHT trying to cross. The actual criminals make an effort to sneak in without interaction with border patrol.

- "Mexico has refused to pay for the wall"

Mexico has already begun investing in the problem. They are paying to harbor the invaders in their own country to keep them from crossing here, and are deploying a lot of resources to their southern borders as well. "A wall" is a system... and it includes a barrier to dramatically affect the speed in which the invaders can illegally jump our border. And since when do we declare things untrue when the process is ongoing? Yea, only dimocratic communsits do that via propaganda.

- "THE SIZE OF THE WALL"

disingenuous assholishness. Trump speaks with exaggeration all the time and we know that. No one expected a wall that was literally 65 feet tall. Only lefty thinks this is valid leverage in an argument and even remotely relevant. Again, "fact checkers" distributing propaganda. This is not "fact checking". It's standard DNC talking points

8. In 1997 I was near Puerto Vallarta

I saw a naval installation, and asked our tour guide what they actually did there. He said one of things they did was patrol the waters to check for illegal aliens.

So was Mexico paying for the wall way back then? The truth is that the Mexicans have been dealing with illegal immigration themselves for years, if not always very well. (For one thing, the illegals have gotten through by giving the cops "regalos".)

Now I think it's a great idea to try to work with Mexico, and other countries in the neighborhood, like Costa Rica, Panama and Belize, on dealing with this migration from the Northern Triangle. Of course it will require skillful diplomacy, and a willingness to give and not just take. Someone like AMLO in particular is not just going to do whatever he is told, but as leftist as he is I think even he would be open to ideas from Trump, if they are at all reasonable.

10. I was watching a local LA news station

and after our President's speech the station went on a 3 minute commercial break. When they came back on air the "fact checker" started spinning President's Trump's speech. Then the news station aired the democrats response and when it was over again went to a commercial break. When they came back on air the host asked the " fact checker" about the democrat's response and the guy looked at the host in shock and said we did not have the time to research what they said so let me tell you more about Trump's lies.
