3. Sites like factcheck worry me, as we wont really know how nonpartisan they really are

....until we discover they're manipulating what they report to suit one person or party over another at a time when information is most needed, like in a crucial election.

I know that if I wanted to cover all my bases as a political group (like the RNC) I would set up an "unbiased" "fact" organization well ahead of a critical election to give it an appearance of legitimacy, then when the election starts I would bias the info (or just not cover some points) to make my candidate look better.
