I fact-checked FactCheck

FactCheck.org is a handy spot for verifying politicians claims. They do a good job of vetting the major ones.

And on Friday, they did a good job of checking various claims in the presidential debates. One problem: when addressing a claim about how much money we send overseas, they noted that the state department budget was only $51.3 million… which was off by 3 orders of magnitude. So, I dropped them a note correcting them, and now it’s corrected!

Of course, there were probably 34,172 other folks who sent in the same correction. But I’ll still take credit for it!
