My new favorite political website

Don't read any further if you don't like seeing questions raised about political candidates you support or the claims they make.

Annenberg Political Fact Check quotes Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan on it's front page. While this may infuriate some conservatives and convince them that this is a Democratic partisan page, further reading shows that Fact Check is quite willing to slice, dice and serve up any candidate, politician or advocacy organization that plays fast and loose with the facts. Recently, they've whacked Swift Boat Veterans For Truth (1, 2) and MoveOn PAC.

We're not just talking a bunch of equal-opportunity hatchet-men here, though. Fact Check analyzes, focuses on and reports on the credibility of advertisements, position papers and statements. They're quite willing to provide the documentation that supports an advertisement, factsheet or statement that their researchers determine is accurate.

Oh, the quote?

"Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but not their own facts."
