Cut thru the campaign bull

Have you  discovered  PolitiFact yet?

If so, you’re onto something GOOD. So spread the word.

If not, please click here

“PolitiFact is a project of the St. Petersburg Times and Congressional Quarterly to help you find the truth in the presidential campaign. Every day, reporters and researchers from the Times and CQ will analyze the candidates’ speeches, TV ads and interviews and determine whether the claims are accurate”

Well isn’t it about time some real journalism showed its face? Now if only we could get “them” to stop wasting our time and money on these garbage ads.

Think about it: We send the candidates, or the political party of our choice our hard-earned dollars, and they turn around and spend gobs of it spewing incessant misinformation back at us.

Does that make sense?
