Fact Checking Links

Obviously, there are a lot of statements that are going to be thrown around as facts. Much of the time, they are either false statements or a matter of opinion than fact. Because of this, I’ve created a list of the fact checking sites that I use when researching political statements. If you know of any reliable and generally unbiased fact checking sites, let me know and I’ll give it a look. If it’s something that I would trust, I’ll put it in the list.

PolitiFact – State levels include Florida, Georgia, New Hampshire, Oregon, Rhode Island, Texas, Virginia, and Wisconsin.

Fact Checking Tips

When doing your own fact checking, be sure to always keep an objective view, even if you completely agree with it. Don’t forget to see what the other side is saying. If you like MSNBC, The Huffington Post, or Fox News, see what the others have to say on the matter. Remember that all news sources are biased to an extent.
