Q: Have 3,000 people been killed by guns in the U.S. in one month, from Oct. 13 to Nov. 14, 2015?
A: Comprehensive data aren’t available yet. The figures cited by Hillary Clinton during a Democratic debate are an extrapolation based on past years.
The latest video in our fact-checking collaboration with CNN’s Jake Tapper is on Hillary Clinton’s claim that a recent study showed “white middle-aged Americans without a high school education … are dying earlier than their parents and their grandparents.”
Hillary Clinton says “most charter schools … don’t take the hardest-to-teach kids. Or if they do, they don’t keep them.” But her campaign could not provide evidence for such a sweeping claim.
Jeb Bush derided the legislative accomplishments of GOP primary rivals, Sens. Ted Cruz, Rand Paul and Marco Rubio, saying they “have a combined two bills that became law that they’ve sponsored.” True, but he ignores the way things work in the Senate.
Hillary Clinton says the U.S. economy does better with a Democrat in the White House. But a report cited by her campaign as evidence doesn’t give credit to Democratic fiscal policies.
