  • I have used it myself. It seems to discredit both candidates lies and misstatements. It does seem to attack the Republicans a tad bit more, but all in all, not terrible. This is just a general observation. However, they do do their research well. I have found another one that you can cross check with if you want www.politfact.com. The two sites tend to agree from what I have seen, politifact just offers some different stories as well to help give a fuller picture.

  • No it tends to lean to the left, but not as bad as news media.

  • Yes it's accurate. Some people just don't like what they see.

  • It is supposed to be an unbiased website but I'm sure that biased opinions do get through here and there.

  • There is no such thing as an unbiased opinion. Even the people entering the information into that website have to vote, which means they agree or disagree with one of the candidates.

  • It's OK, but not totally unbiased. It's hard to find anyplace that is really.

  • It is unbiased. If it seems to be heavy on the Rebulican fact check then maybe there's a good reson for that.
