'Policing the pols'

Check out Emily Yahr's analysis of PolitiFact in the new issue of the American Journalism Review. Also, take a look at Clark Hoyt's column Fact and Fiction on the Campaign Trail in Sunday's New York Times, which urges the paper to come up with something similar to our Truth-O- Meter. He says the NYT, "with its own rich Web offerings on the presidential campaign, would do well to showcase a similar fact-checking feature. Maybe the YouTube community could come up with the title, the music video and a truthfulness scale."
