Fact Checking the N.H. Debates in Real Time

Big doings afoot over at The Fact Checker blog tonight. Michael Dobbs explains:

Greetings from Saint Amselm College in Manchester!....We have assembled a team of crack fact checkers to truth squad both debates, and call the candidates out for any inaccuracies. Environmental reporter Juliet Eilperin is sitting next to me in the media filing center. She is also an expert on Congress, having covered it all her life. We are joined in Washington by John Solomon, a veteran political reporter for the Associated Press and now the Post, and diplomatic reporter Glenn Kessler. Prior to the foreign policy beat, Glenn covered economics. I was a foreign correspondent for the Post for more than a decade, and also covered education, so I hope we will be able to weigh in quickly on most factual disputes.

Backing us up is ace researcher Alice Crites, who has been with the Fact Checker column from the beginning, and editor Steve Ginsberg. Readers can also help, by using the comments or Contact the Fact Checker tools to alert us to potential errors on the part of the candidates.

Since this is a live fact check, we are not going to issue any definitive rulings this evening. Our aim is more modest--to flag questionable statements and contribute to a more informed discussion. Let the fact checking begin!

You can follow along here.
