Fact-Checking Websites

This has been quite a year of politics.

With politics, come lies - damn lies - and statistics!

Most automatically think of the presidential election, but I am thinking mostly of my change from a traditional district to Charter Schools when it comes to politics and lies.

With discretion being the better part of valor, I will choose not to share the specifics about the worst year in blatant lies that I have ever experienced in my career.

However, feel free to read:

Nor will I make this a session of making fun of Fox News, mostly because it is too easy to do!
Besides I think that The Daily Show and Huff Post have that market cornered.

Instead, here is a copy of fact check websites.
As always, never rely on one source for anything!
