PolitiFact Wins A Pulitzer

One of our favorite sites has won a Pulitzer!  Politifact.com, a project of the St. Pete Times, was formed to separate fact from fiction when our political leaders open their mouths.  The site employs the “Truth-O-Meter”, a quick synopsis that tests a quote on the truth scale.  For example, a recent Barack Obama quote about the origin of guns seized in Mexico was discovered to be a “half truth.”  A quote from Republican Congressman Gus Bilirakis in regards to a controversial Department of Homeland Security report was found to be “barely true.”  

Congratulations to the St. Pete Times and Politifact.com for one of the cleverest sites to come along in some time.
