Truth in Politics as Well as in Science
It is my experience that folks believe whatever suits their preconceived notions of reality rather than take the risk of finding that those preconceptions may well be folklore rather than truthlore. Truthiness reigns in politics more often than truth tellers.
Polifacts is a website you might want to check: http://www.politifact.com
Snopes is another: http://www.snopes.com/
If you enjoy finding out how to tell when a politico is lying in the first place: http://www.humanliedetection.com/
I find The League of Woman Voters apt at providing unvarnished truths: http://www.lwv.org/
As well, I seek information from The Christian Science Monitor who seem to present a balanced view of the news. You may wish to check them out: http://www.csmonitor.com/
If there are other websites that ought to be included in this list, please comment below. I'll check them out and add if they are valid sources of 'truth'.
