The Value of Fact-Checking in the 2012 Campaign
Posted: 11/9/2012  |  By: Bill Adair | PolitiFact
I am a fan of David Carr, the media writer at the New York Times, but he really misfired with his blog post "A Last Fact-Check: It Didn't Work."

Carr's point is that the tremendous amount of fact-checking of the 2012 campaign was worthless because it didn't stop the candidates from lying.
