fact check radio...

Winter is here without a doubt. We went from a surprisingly mild early November to well, Winter. I am going to still try and walk, just bundle up. I listen to podcasts on my iPhone and listen to Fact Check Radio.

FactCheck.org is a non-partisan, nonprofit website that describes itself as a "'consumer advocate' for voters that aims to reduce the level of deception and confusion in U.S. politics." It is a project of the Annenberg Public Policy Center of the Annenberg School for Communication at the University of Pennsylvania, and is funded primarily by the Annenberg Foundation.

Most of its content consists of rebuttals to what it considers inaccurate, misleading, or false claims by politicians. FactCheck has also targeted misleading claims from various partisan groups.

Besides maintaining a website, FactCheck.org distributes audio stories by podcast and iTunes Radio.

These podcasts are an easy short 7-9 minutes. Two in my queue are 'Earmarks, Taxes and Premium Hikes', and 'Obama, Pelosi, Pence and McConnell.
