Pinocchio Tracker: Fact-checking the presidential candidates
By Glenn Kessler,
We are pleased to announce a new retooled Pinocchio Tracker , which was produced inhouse by Kat Downs of The Washington Post graphics staff. It replaces an earlier version that was created a couple of months ago by our friends at Tableau Software.
The new Pinocchio Tracker has a fun feature: It brings up quotes and asks you to guess how many Pinocchios it received from The Fact Checker. Then you can find out if your ruling matches ours--and see why we decided the statement was faulty.<a href=”http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/special/politics/fact-checker-fact-or-fiction/”><img border=”0” align=”bottom” src=”/rf/image_606w/WashingtonPost/Content/Blogs/fact-checker/Images/fact-check-tracker.png?uuid=LpvCTCXOEeG6UZmisn9jBQ” width=”510”></a>
As before, the Pinocchio Tracker will take you to every column that examined a statement by a GOP candidate, President Obama or Vice President Biden. It will also show you the average Pinocchio rating each person has received.
