    Given the track record of so-called fact checkers, it's perfectly reasonable to be suspicious of anyone who claims to be a neutral arbiter of truth.

    I assume, then, that you are suspicious of Fox News?

    Gee, John, is there anything besides Breitbart and Fox news that you don't consider "fake news"?

    A great idea. I hope it takes off.

    We already have Allsides.com and I have recommended to posters to use it to find out what sources they are using and to look for sources that are rated center.

    I thought about that years ago with all the bullshit that gets passed around. Wasn't quite sure how it could be monetized.

    It is well needed, people believing blogs that any jackass can write

    So, is this "new" rating organisation "liberal" or "conservative?"

    Facts don't care about liberal or conservatives.

    It's largely you conservatives that had made news about politics thanks to Fox news and the nonsense they peddled about how you people should watch them because all other sources of new and information was "liberally biased"
