“Practical politics consists in ignoring facts.” Henry Brooks Adams
I have been a bit obsessed with the current long drawn out political campaign. I try to watch every debate and primary and they say. In my opinion it has everything that these reality TV shows have but with one shining difference. This one counts. Anyway I was having trouble keeping track of what the candidates were saying and whether it was a legitimate claim. So I have been heading to Fact Check. This is a great website created and supported by the Annenberg Public Policy Center of the
. They are Non-partisan and non-profit and just fantastic. There are plenty of articles written and easily searchable but my personal favorite is the Just the Facts Show. A short video every week of the candidate’s goings on. It is nicely written and put on. If you are into the election or just need more of a political fix then give this one a try.
