PolitiFact is a website that attempts to present non-biased fact checking on claims made by candidates in the lead up to an election. The Mainstream Media calls the group a "neutral arbiter", but the facts are often skewered to a liberals advantage. In 2010, 39% of Republican statements were "Pants on fire" or "False" compared with just 12% of democrat statements. [1]


PolitiFact.com is a project of the Tampa Bay Times to help you find the truth in Washington and the Obama presidency.
