Wondering about the facts in the latest campaign ad?
PolitiFact’s Settle It! app stands to resolve many dinner-table disagreements in the coming election season. Users simply type in the name, subject, or policy at the heart of a contentious issue in order to pull up related information from PolitiFact’s Truth-O-Meter. This Pulitzer Prize-winning barometer rates claims made by politicians and their advocates, ranging from a top rating of “True” (denoting total authenticity) to the dreaded “Pants on Fire” (indicating a flagrant falsehood). The app also features a game that challenges its users to determine the validity of certain statements on the spot, effectively giving them the chance to hone their own accuracy radars.
