Let’s Check those Facts!
Fact-checking sites we recommend: Factcheck https://www.factcheck.org/ This project of the Annenberg Public Policy Center of the University of Pennsylvania monitors the factual accuracy of what is said by the president and top administration officials, as well as congressional and party leaders. YES, the site accepts questions!
Politifact http://www.politifact.com/ This nonpartisan fact-checking website strives to sort out the truth in American politics. It is managed by the Tampa Bay Times, which is owned by the Poynter Institute, a nonprofit school for journalists. Its Truth-O-Meter rulings have six ratings, from True to Pants on Fire.
Snopes https://www.snopes.com/ The site was founded to research urban legends and has grown into the oldest and largest fact-checking site on the Internet. A good resource for checking popular culture stories shared on the web.
