Video: GOP Convention, Day 1


CLEVELAND — FactCheck.org Managing Editor Lori Robertson discusses some of the false and misleading claims made on the first day of the Republican National Convention, which focused on public safety.

Robertson discusses Benghazi, border security and violent crime rates with USA Today Washington correspondent Paul Singer.

The video, the first in a series from the convention site, is based on our story “GOP Convention Opens in Cleveland.”

Next week, we will dispatch our staffers in Philadelphia for the Democratic convention. We intend to vet the major speeches at both conventions for factual accuracy, applying the same standards to both.
