Help build sourced database of media/Bush lies and truth for Moveon
Bush lies - Moveon has new searchable database of Bush statements/truth SEARCHABLE DATABASE CHARTS BUSH/CHENEY LIES

As the September 11th Commission grills President Bush and Vice President Cheney about their contradictory statements today, we wanted to alert you to a powerful new tool to help journalists, activists and the public compare the Bush administration's claims against well-documented facts. The Center for American Progress today launched a comprehensive Claim vs. Fact database at that documents statements from conservatives like President Bush, Vice President Cheney, Members of Congress and Fox News personalities, and compares those statements to the facts. Each fact is sourced, and in many cases includes a web link directly to that source.

The database has more than 400 entries so far, but THEY NEED YOUR HELP BUILDING IT. If you know of a lie, distortion or dishonest statement from a Bush Administration official or another conservative that isn't already in the database, please go to their submission page at:


There you can submit an entry for addition to the database, so that the tool grows and becomes a real-time tracker of lies.

- Peter Schurman and the MoveOn team

this is the group that is doing this and could use anything that you hear too: Center for American Progress:

The Center for American Progress has launched this new database project to chart conservatives's dishonesty and compare it with the truth. In this database, each conservative quote will be matched against well-documented facts, so that users can get a more accurate picture of the issues. And we need your help. If we're missing a lie or distortion you know of, please submit an entry. If it checks out, we will gladly add it to the database.
