Dome is proud to announce the launch of a new fact-checking blog today. The News & Observer's political team has long tracked whether North Carolina politicians rhetoric matched reality. But now it will have a home for the 2012 election cycle.
You'll find two new fact checks from the Democratic gubernatorial debates at the site. See whether Bob Etheridge really improved test scores as state superintendent and whether Lt. Gov. Walter Dalton accurately depicted the number of jobs the state created through an incentives program. Also, find previous fact checks on the debate, Gov. Bev Perdue, political advertising and the legislature.
We welcome feedback from readers. If you see a campaign advertisement or political speech that needs fact checking, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. And check back regularly for posts.
