(David Mack) Just when folks thought they might be able to tweet with impunity, the upstanding citizens at FactCheck.org decide to ruin the fun. The uber truth squad kicked off a new feature this week that will pour through the tweets of elected officials and identify those that stretch the truth or flat out lie.
The fact checkers found that mis-tweeting is an equal opportunity game with Democrats and Republicans both joining in the fun. Mark Milian at the Los Angeles Times wrote up a nice piece on the service that includes some key jems.
I say thank you to the folks at FactCheck who are working hard to not only keep our elected officials honest but also keeping up with the the times. This is another great example of why people should not fear a changing media landscape.
Can't wait to see what grade they give our friend @chavezcandanga.
