Checking the candidates

Lots of buzz today about the new politics site from Congressional Quarterly and the St. Petersburg Times: PolitFact. The 'Truth-o-Meter' checks candidates' statements and accusations for factual background.

Checking is done by several Times and CQ reporters, as well as an impressive list of news researchers.

See also Matt Waite, who came up with the programming and database to make this happen. Great work all around.
