Politician Hype vs. Political Facts

For anyone looking for the real facts in the 2008 election, consider going to FactCheck.org (http://www.factcheck.org/).

This site is a “nonpartisan, nonprofit, ‘consumer advocate’ for voters that aims to reduce the level of deception and confusion in U.S. politics.” They look at everything from TV/radio ads to speeches and interviews to see what the candidates are saying and what is actually true. Officially called the Annenberg Political Fact Check, the project comes from the Annenberg Public Policy Center at the University of Pennsylvania and “accepts NO funding from business corporations, labor unions, political parties, lobbying organizations or individuals.” (quotations are from the site)
