    Default websites that help sort the political fact from the crap

    I like these websites to help me sort out the fact from the hyperbole and outright bullshit.

    www.factcheck.org calls both sides on their bull
    http://wire.factcheck.org boils down the bullshit to a manageable sized patty

    www.politifact.com love their "truth o meter"

    as I've stated before I also like the Brookings Institution emails www.brookings.edu

    anybody else use these sites or have other sites to help us sort out the true leaders from the "personalities"?

    Hey Daisy:

    I'm on factcheck.org almost daily. I haven't tried the others, but I will. Thanks for the links.

    I've already called out the Brookings Institute as a liberal think tank. Now for the Annenberg Foundation, which runs factcheck.org:

    A Few Facts and Observations

    First, 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.

    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).

    [Incidentally, the current CEO of ComEd, Frank M. Clark, is a major money bundler for the Obama campaign.]

    You’ll recall from Wednesday’s story that the Annenberg files have suddenly been locked down under mysterious circumstances, after a reporter was promised access.

    Factcheck.org, used as a resource by so many who wish to “debunk” negative coverage of Obama, is also a Division, or Project, of the Annenberg Foundation.

    You’ll recall that Factcheck was the second site to publish the now-suspect Certificate of Live Birth (COLB) reportedly received from the Obama campaign.

    [The Annenberg Foundation and family has an interesting history that we may examine in more detail.]

    It seems as if that is wrong info Vike.

    Factcheck.org was set up at the University of Pennsylvania.

    I could be wrong. But no where does it mention any of the players in the above link.

    Wait... you mean to tell me that a blogger might have an agenda? That they might make something up, or pull something out of their ass?

    Bloggers are people nobody listens to in person. That's why they have blogs.

    Mike, I find that hard to believe. You know as well as I do that if it is on the World Wide Web it is in FACT true.

    Well, it's good to see that you are objective.

    I like "texasdarlin" and all, and used to get most of my news there, BUT... my new source of information on all things politics is a blogger named "utahpimp". I'll find the link and post it the next time I want to disprove a Brookings Institute study.

    Yep.

    I have a blog (four actually) and that's pretty much all I do is talk out of my ass. Frees up brain space for my Spanish and Science classes.

    Plus I have an agenda too and one day, God help us dogs will have the right to vote.

    For truly impartial, no-agenda, level headed commentary without hysteria, I like to go to www.infowars.com.

    And later, when the moon is full, I rub freshly sacrificed baboon's blood on my genitalia and sing old Ukranian folk songs.

    It keeps the bad people away.....

    Hey, I've tried the freeze dried, concentrate but it dosn't have the same tingle. Try the fresh stuff once mistere, you'll never go back.
