CNN Finally Finds A Bit Of Truth

CNN has been publishing these handy little fact check articles on their political blog. They'll take an outrageous statement from one campaign or another, and look into it to decide just how accurate it is.

Whether it's reviewing Obama's claims or McCain's, the verdict usually comes back as misleading, incomplete, and every so often flat out false.

So, I was a bit surprised when CNN published a Fact Check article today that was flat out true. What a find - it must not have been easy.

If it were up to me, I'd submit every political ad to a 3rd party group to evaluate all the statements made. If they are anything other than flat out true, I say we don't run 'em.

Alas, nobody's asked my opinion on this yet. So, we continue to see misleading ads from both sides. And calling them misleading is probably me being generous.
