Political Fact-Checking Website

| May 4, 2016 | Uncategorized

PolitiFact is a fact-checking website that rates the accuracy of claims by elected officials and others who speak up in American politics. PolitiFact is run by editors and reporters from the Tampa Bay Times, an independent newspaper in Florida. They… 

rate the accuracy of claims as True, Mostly True, Half True, Mostly False, False or “Pants on Fire.”I just check the last 40 statements that were rated “Pants on Fire.” Those 40 outrageously false claims included these sources:

  • Donald Trump – 14
  • Various unattributed “chain emails” and Facebook posts – 9
  • Ted Cruz – 2
  • Ben Carson – 3
  • One each for Marco Rubio, Bill Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, Rand Paul, Carly Fiorina, Harry Reid, Joe Biden and Chris Christie.
