Check Your Facts!

No matter the slant of your political leanings, I think most of us can agree that one of the most frustrating things about being an informed citizen is knowing just how true are the various claims made by politicians of all stripes. Enter:

A “nonpartisan, nonprofit, ‘consumer advocate’ for voters that aims to reduce the level of deception and confusion in U.S. politics,” FactCheck.Org has as it’s mission to “monitor 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.” Part of the Annenberg Public Policy Center of the University of Pennsylvania, FactCheck accepts no funding from business corporations, labor unions, political parties, lobbying organizations or individuals. Whahoo! Talk about truth in advertising!
