Fact Checkers

We had a great time watching the debates with my family. Everybody came away with a different opinion and everybody questioned at least one statement. So I thought I’d look up some political fact checkers before the next debate. I hope you find them helpful too:

FactCheck.org (http://www.factcheck.org/) monitors the factual accuracy of what is said by major U.S. political players in the form of TV ads, debates, speeches, interviews, and news releases.

PolitiFact (http://www.politifact.com) has a truth-o-meter that gauges accuracy of comments made by politicians researched by reports and researchers at the St. Petersburg Times and Congressional Quarterly

Fact Checker (http://voices.washingtonpost.com/fact-checker/) is hosted by the Washington Post.
