The latest on FactCheck

Sorry to be slow the past couple of days...I'm out of town and a bit out of touch. While I get my act together, I'm not going to do much more than direct you to -- which I'm sure you're checking anyway.

Everybody gets a bit of a smackdown this week for stretching or massaging the truth in various ads and speeches.

Joe Biden misleads on Senator McCain's record about small borrowers and the GI Bill.

The McCain-Palin campaign distorts Senator Obama's tax plan.

And the Obama-Biden campaign misrepresents Senator McCain's plan to amend Social Security.

I do recommend that you read these analyses that show how people's words are used and misused, sometimes in very subtle ways.

Stay vigilant!
