Political chatter from DC and NYC, the amNewYork way
Maybe fact checkers should sit next to Bob
By Dontre Conerly
The unfortunate side effect of any presidential campaign, especially since Bush's run in 2000, is that fictitious information can be spewed without regard for the facts! Both candidates put information about there that isn't exactly true, but it's confusing for the American public when one candidate uses the benefit of a live debate to sway thought by disseminating information that is not true and can't be fact-checked in the moment.
It would be a credit of the news organizations if they can tackle some of these rumours during the debate and stop the momentum of the lies! Waiting for the morning, when pundits go point-by-point, and try to reverse the emotional baggage that the viewers have already invested.
