Websites that help sort fact from fiction

Call me a cockeyed optimist, but I’m not despairing about democracy in the Citizens United era. Not yet, anyway. I just don’t think most Americans will decide their votes based on short TV spots financed by a group of shadowy donors.

I give most voters more credit than that. Yes, there’s more nonsense in the air than ever before. Yet, in the Internet age, it’s also relatively easy to sort the truth from fiction.
