There's still a bias does some excellent work, but don't be blinded by the "non-partisan" label -- a look at the bios of the group's fact-checkers reveals largely mainstream journalists and academics. There doesn't appear to be the kind of political balance that would work best in producing unbiased fact-checking in white-hot political season. A case in point […]
