The Truth-o-Meter

We’ve added a new widget to the site – scroll down and to the right, you’ll see the PolitiFact.com truth-o-meter. It’s not strictly a Northwest thing, but we think it might be useful.

There, you’ll see statements made by or about candidates, and marked as truthful, halfway or (in the really bad cases) “pants on fire.” And you can click through to the main site and check out whatever statements you might have heard by or about the candidates, to see what the background and facts are.

A good many people have difficult sifting this stuff. The truth-o-meter might actually help.
