PolitiFact or Politi-fiction?
Newspaper "truth" columns are a bad idea. They imply that journalists could know the truth of difficult, complicated, even scientific subjects. This is simply not the case. Worse, they imply that there are impartial arbiters of truth who one can listen to be informed of the truth. If there are such Unicorns, they are not journalist, one of the most biased groups, only eclipsed by academics.
Never rely on the nincompoop.
