Check What?

Fact checks are important, and when you inject pompous posturing with facts, you have a powerful message. So, what about

Our Mission
We are a nonpartisan, nonprofit, "consumer advocate" for voters that aims to reduce the level of deception and confusion in U.S. politics. We 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. Our goal is to apply the best practices of both journalism and scholarship, and to increase public knowledge and understanding.

Sounds great, where can the Clear Politicking be here?

Easy, as the non-partisan group picks and chooses which facts they seek to check, and what evidence they accept as fact. Peruse the site, and you will see they spend a great deal of time checking the information attacking one candidate more than another candidate. And, you may want to consider questioning their evidence.

To be non-partisan is to be disliked by all sides, and embraced by none. There are a lot of people on one side proclaiming the independence of this non-partisan group.

Just remember, donít just check the facts, check the motives, as well as how and which facts are being used.
