Get Just The Facts And Only The Political facts

 

Its so hard in today’s information enabled world to determine fact from fiction. Especially when it comes to politcs. What did Barack Obama realy say. What did John McCain really say. I published a blog entry on September 04, 2008 Titled John McCain Versus Barack Obama Comparision. It was my hopes I could provide some useful information on comparing the two. Someone commented that one of the facts was wong. When I asked the if they could validate it somehow, I have not had a response yet.

I was just made aware of a web site, where you can turn too, for factual information on the candidate. It called Factcheck.org.

To better understand this organization and it’s charter, here is the about us information. 

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.

The Annenberg Political Fact Check is a project of the Annenberg Public Policy Center of the University of Pennsylvania. The APPC was established by publisher and philanthropist Walter Annenberg in 1994 to create a community of scholars within the University of Pennsylvania that would address public policy issues at the local, state, and federal levels.

The APPC accepts NO funding from business corporations, labor unions, political parties, lobbying organizations or individuals. It is funded primarily by the Annenberg Foundation.

As a person who is an active Blogger, I have tried hard to alwasy cite my sources. That practice is not done near enough. There is a very old saying. “Buyer Beware”.  In the Internet enabled world, its important you use common sense and just becuase its wrriten down on a web site does not mean its so.

I hope this site comes in handy.
