We who live in "swing states" are getting our fill of political ads provided by the parties and by other groups hiding behind nice names.Â There are resources on the internet which can provide information that will let you check the truth of those ads.
I strongly suspect we will find lots of lies by all parties.
FactCheck.org a project of the Annenberg Public Policy Center at the University of Pennsylvania:Â Â www.factcheck.org
Politifat.com Tampa Bay Times (won a Pulitzer Prize for web sites)Â www.politifact.com
Fact Checker of the Washington Post: www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/fact-checker
For fiscal analysis:
Center on Budget and Policy Priorities: (a "progressive" site) www.cbpp.org
Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget: (bipartisan) www.crfb.org
Concord Coalition: (non-partisan, started by senator Paul Tsongas (Dem) and Sen Warren Rudman (Rep)) www.concordcaolition.org
I am confident that there are other such good sources but these should at least get one started.Â (Look out for sites that make only one party or one "wing" of the political spectrum look bad.)
