Interestingly, I stumbled upon this site (literally, through StumbleUpon.com) and felt it was worth mentioning since the chapter for tomorrow relates to politics. FactCheck.org is a nonprofit and nonpartisan website that works to expose statements considered misleading from politicians and partisan groups. They monitor speeches, television ads, debates, interviews, press releases, etc, for inaccuracy. The goal of the site is "to apply the best practices of both journalism and scholarship, and to increase public knowledge and understanding." It's a very interesting web site. Just thought I'd share!
