Default Politifact - Sponsoring Truth in Politics

Politifact.com

I just came across this website today while fact-checking in an online health care debate. Looks to be a promising site in rooting out the propaganda and lies from ALL politicians speeches or public addresses.

They have a nifty little "Truth-o-meter" to which they asses political statements as True, Mostly True, Half True, Barely True, False and "Pants-on-fire!". There is also an "Obameter" which judges whether the president has followed through on many of the claims he made while still on the campaign trail.

Just wondering if anybody else has checked it out and had time to judge the consistency of their reporting.
