How do you check your political facts?

Politics is tough to watch. Candidates throw big money behind their claims that their policies are better or perhaps their opponent is worse than they are.

Where can you go to for the facts? Where can you “see through the spin” of Washington? Personally I visit http://www.factcheck.org. Factcheck.org is a non-profit organization and is not affiliated with any political party. You can tell they don’t have the best funding in the world; however they do a lot of research and know how to get a hold of claims made by politicians and show the truthfulness of them.

When you visit their YouTube site it is a bit disappointing when you look at the total number of views and comments when compared to Obama or McCain’s site. Both candidates have made misrepresentations in their campaign so far. For a taste of what a Factcheck.org episode looks like watch the video below.

I am grateful as a citizen to have others that are willing to help me work my way through the facts and figures thrown out by politicians.

Thank you Factcheck.org
