Yes, that can happen, though I think that the problem is made somewhat smaller by pointing out all fallacies, falsehoods, etc. That way, you can't cherry-pick fallacies and falsehoods that you want to focus on.

Another method would of course be to have several independent checkers, though that would be time-expensive. I had some people commenting on the comments draft, but the final decision was my own.

I think several independent checkers might be a bit more reliable provided they do not share the same political beliefs. The problem with pointing out all falsehoods is that people are highly subjective in deciding what is false. For example, if a candidate said that there is not enough evidence for the global warming, a republican commenter might consider this a true statement, a democrat commenter might write that this is false and the independent might decide that this is a matter of opinion.
