1. It actually seems to be balanced.
Just on the front page I see pieces for and against both Kerry and Bush

2. Columbia School of Journalism
I'm pretty sure. They were very fair to Gore last time around..The Columbia Journalism Review, that is.

3. Columbia or Annenberg?
At any rate, my issue with this group is that the extent of their fact checking is limited to reviewing other media reports in order t arrive at a conclusion. Hardly ACTUAL fact checking, since they are relying on the truthfulness of the major media companies.

6. Thanks...maybe I am thinking of another site then
Annenberg has one and it did not appear to be very NON partisan.

5. It's Annenberg and it has a right wing tilt to it. The late Mr. Anenberg.
was a know Nixonite Conservative.

I personally don't trust them.

7. their "facts" are sometimes fuzzy
There is definite spin in the Annenberg zone--verify before accepting what they say at face value.

9. I'll have to check that site out
Hadn't heard of it before. Hopefully it's reasonably accurate.
