We are the PunditFact fact-checkers. Ask US anything.
*This was really rewarding. Thanks for the great questions. It looks like the action has wound down so we'll wrap it up. We hope lots of you will come on over to /r/punditfact, roll up your sleeves and get into the craft of fact-checking. We need your eyes on the pundits. We'd love your help in identifying reliable sources of data that shed light on the accuracy of claims. Thank you for great IAmA session. Thank you reddit. And special thanks to /r/neutralpolitics for helping us get started. Cheers, Jon, Katie and Aaron. ********
We check the statements of pundits for accuracy. We are wonks on a mission. Data and original sources get us pumped. Straight-shooting experts hold a special place in our hearts. We love what we do.
We’ve checked claims from cable news hosts, Sunday talk show panelists, radio hosts and even cartoonists (that was Doonesbury).You can see all of our work at PunditFact.
Online today are the editor, Aaron Sharockman, and the two staff writers, Katie Sanders and Jon Greenberg. We’ll be signing these posts as Aaron, Katie and Jon.
By the way, we thrive on suggestions of facts to check and sources to consider. Join us at /r/PunditFact.
But first, you truly can ask about our work, where we come from, the people we’ve checked — you name it. We’re looking forward to your questions.
Jon, Katie and Aaron
