PolitiFact relentlessly pursues the truth and provides added context when it comes to verifying claims made by politicians.
- PolitiFact's reporters and editors fact-check statements from the White House, Congress, candidates, advocacy groups and more, rating claims for accuracy on its Truth-O-Meter.
- The meter rates statements as true, mostly true, half true, mostly false, false and even ‘pants on fire’ for what PolitiFact deems are big lies.
- Every fact-check includes analysis of the claim, an explanation of its reasoning and a list of links to all sources used for research.
