Don’t Call It a Comeback


We been here for years.

Since 2003, to be precise. But in 2008, we have a lot more company than we used to. And Editor & Publisher, a journal that covers the newspaper industry (a meta-newspaper?) has taken notice.

In a special report published yesterday, E&P discusses a trend that we’re happy to see (and that we rather modestly like to think that we may have had at least a small role in creating): “How Fact-Checking Took Center Stage in 2008 Campaign.” FactCheck.org’s Brooks Jackson makes an appearance in the article. In three short paragraphs, he manages to discuss fishing, rugby and screwing (no, not that kind!). You should, as they say, go read the whole thing.
