Jobs fact-checks for Labor Day

The state of the economy is a perennial issue for voters — and a talking point for politicians, one they sometimes spin to their advantage. On this Labor Day, we’re taking a look back at some of our recent fact-checks about the labor market and employment statistics. On the campaign trail, Republican candidate Donald Trump has asserted that he "will be the greatest jobs president that God has ever created." Under the current president, he said, the job market isn’t doing well, despite numbers that say otherwise, Trump says. "Our real unemployment is anywhere from 18 to 20 percent. Don't … >>More Read more CompleteJobs fact-checks for Labor Day … Read entire article »

Hillary Clinton's emails: classified or not?

Hillary Clinton has said over and over again that there was no classified material on the private email server she used while secretary of state. "I have said repeatedly that I did not send nor receive classified material, and I’m very confident that when this entire process plays out that will be understood by everyone," she said in Minneapolis in August. "I can only repeat what happens to be the case– that I did not send nor receive information that was marked classified at the time that it was sent or received," she said on Sept. 8 in an interview … >>More Read more CompleteHillary Clinton's emails: classified or not? … Read entire article »

Happy birthday, PolitiFact! PolitiFact turns 8

Eight years ago this week, we launched a new website for accountability journalism that we called PolitiFact. A project of the Tampa Bay Times newspaper, PolitiFact debuted to fact-check the 2007 primary field. Back then, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and John Edwards led the Democratic field, while Rudy Giuliani, Fred Thompson and John McCain were the most popular Republicans. Our reports proved popular; eight years later, we’re still fact-checking. A lot has changed in those years. We have seven, soon to be eight, state-based fact-checking sites, and we launched PunditFact to fact-check the talking heads in 2013. What’s stayed the same? … >>More Read more CompleteHappy birthday, PolitiFact! PolitiFact turns 8 … Read entire article »

Fact-checking the second GOP presidential debate

Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina seized her moment on stage at the Republican debate, launching a passionate attack against Democratic policies on abortion and Planned Parenthood. Fiorina said defunding Planned Parenthood should be a priority since videos about fetal tissue procurement have been publicized. "I dare Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama to watch these tapes," she said on the stage at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library Wednesday night. "Watch a fully formed fetus on the table, its heart beating, its legs kicking, while someone says, 'We have to keep it alive to harvest its brain.' " It was one of many … >>More Read more CompleteFact-checking the second GOP presidential debate … Read entire article »

PolitiFact Sheet: 6 things to know about the Iran nuclear deal

With 41 Senate Democrats backing the historic agreement between Iran and five world powers, the Iran nuclear deal is on its way to becoming a done deal, notching a foreign-policy win for President Barack Obama. Yet the debate is far from over. Republican presidential hopefuls Donald Trump and Ted Cruz, flanked by Sarah Palin, appeared at a Stop the Iran Deal Rally on Sept. 9. They and other critics say the deal gives away too much to Iran, while supporters say the alternative would be much more dangerous. The 159-page deal may hinge on nuclear physics, but understanding the basics … >>More Read more CompletePolitiFact Sheet: 6 things to know about the Iran nuclear deal … Read entire article »

Bernie Sanders — socialist or democratic socialist?

"Socialist" — the word is a loaded term and often a rhetorical weapon. But Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., seems to proudly claim it. "Do they think I’m afraid of the word? I’m not afraid of the word," he said in an interview with The Nation published in July. "When I ran for the Senate the first time, I ran against the wealthiest guy in the state of Vermont. He spent a lot on advertising — very ugly stuff. He kept attacking me as a liberal. He didn’t use the word ‘socialist’ at all, because everybody in the state knows that I am that." … >>More Read more CompleteBernie Sanders — socialist or democratic socialist? … Read entire article »

Fact-checking the Sept. 27 Sunday shows

With a new poll showing him in a virtual tie with Republican frontrunner Donald Trump, Ben Carson went on the Sunday news shows to talk politics, including to explain some of his recent comments on immigration. On ABC’s This Week, Carson said he gets his information on immigration from local sheriffs and that he doesn’t trust information from the federal government. "You know, a lot of these people who are captured, it's ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) who comes along and says, you must release these people. And that's not helpful to the American people. They need to be working … >>More Read more CompleteFact-checking the Sept. 27 Sunday shows … Read entire article »

Fact-checking Donald Trump, Scott Walker on the Sept. 13 shows

Three days ahead of the second Republican debate, Donald Trump on Sunday found himself in the familiar position of defending disparaging remarks he made about a woman’s appearance. Trump was asked on CBS’ Face the Nation to explain a Rolling Stone profile that quotes him as saying, "Look at that face! Would anyone vote for that?" in reference to former HP CEO Carly Fiorina. Unlike the first GOP bout on Fox News, Fiorina will join Trump and nine other contenders for Wednesday’s square-off on CNN. Trump said his intention was to criticize her "persona," casting attention on Fiorina’s business record. … >>More Read more CompleteFact-checking Donald Trump, Scott Walker on the Sept. 13 shows … Read entire article »

The Obama Muslim Myth: The Clinton connection

The myth that President Barack Obama is a Muslim refuses to die. Seven years after a full debunking in the 2008 election, nearly 3 out of 10 people still believe it, according to a recent CNN poll. Among Republicans, the number rises to over 4 out of 10. Donald Trump’s supporters seem particularly attached to the notion. Over 60 percent of them hold on to this falsehood, based on a survey by the Democratic-leaning group Public Policy Polling. The idea is strong enough that even 15 percent of Democrats think it’s true. Oddly, some Democrats played a role in spreading it, … >>More Read more CompleteThe Obama Muslim Myth: The Clinton connection … Read entire article »
