Fact vs Fiction in Political Campaigns

As elections approach, decisions about how to vote are being made.  And political campaigns and candidates have been known to bend the truth in their efforts to get the votes.  The PBS blog, Media Shift, had a helpful article this week, Political Fact-Check Sites Proliferate, But Can They Break Through the Muck?  The non-partisan, fact-checking sites recommended are Annenberg Public Policy Center's FactCheck.org, the St. Petersburg Times and Congressional Quarterly's PolitiFact and the Washington Post's Fact Checker blog.  The title of the Media Shift article refers to their observation that the partisan fact-checking sites are being used more that these non-partisan sites.  Links to those more biased sites are also part of the article, but I'm not going post them here.
