Should be Required Reading!

Fact Check is a wonderful source for finding the facts related to various rumors and distortions, particularly political information.

Okay for children, but not neutral, so encourage multiple websites.

Although this website is proposed as a neutral based fact finding website, it is sponsored by a left-biased organization. One should read about the Annenburg histories to determine how the organizations have played a part in American politics and then determine the level of "neutrality". The "facts" are definitely not neutral based and this website is not truly representative of a bi-partisan nature.

FactCheck.org is not unbiased and has links to politcal groups and politicians

OBAMA’S CONNECTIONS TO FACTCHECK.ORG EXPOSED: Keep in mind: Senator Obama was the first Chairman of the Board of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, which was a Division, or Project, of the Annenberg Foundation.(FactCheck.org is a Division/Project of the Annenberg Foundation) William (Bill) Ayers, unrepentant Weather Underground terrorist and a friend of the Obamas, was instrumental in founding the Challenge, thanks to his ties to Mayor Richard Daley. The first Daley was also a pal of Thomas Ayers, Bill’s father, former CEO of ComEd (owned by Exelon- big contributor to Obama and nuclear energy company).

FactCheck is anything but non-partisan.

FactCheck.org has fallen in line with the Obama/Candy Crowley position that the attacks in Benghazi were called terrorist on 9/12/2012. He never called the specific attack an act of terror.
