FactCheck.org

As the late Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan once opined, “Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but not their own facts.” True indeed, and certainly a sentiment that motivates the staff at FactCheck.org, a project sponsored by the Annenberg Public Policy Center of the University of Pennsylvania. The project is designed to monitor the factual accuracy of what is said by numerous politicos in their speeches, debates, news releases, and the always important, television advertisements. On their website, visitors can look through their latest FactCheck reports, which include rigorous examinations of the use of the term “amnesty” in political rhetoric and, of course, a host of recent campaign ads. Visitors will also be glad to know that they can view some of the television campaign ads that FactCheck reports on.
