Web site of the Week: Fact Check


Should you believe the claims made that the H1N1 vaccine is dangerous or even deadly?  What about the recent ad that claimed that Medicare will be bankrupt within a decade?  Factcheck.org is the place to go to check the accuracy of either of these statements.

From Fact Check’s Mission Statement:
“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.”
