Live Fact Checking Begins at 9
Please join the Fact Checker and Friends at 9 p.m. Eastern for live truth squadding of the second presidential debate from Belmont University in Nashville. Fact Checker Michael Dobbs will be joined by diplomatic reporter Glenn Kessler, White House correspondent Michael Abramowitz, campaign reporter Michael Shear, and research editor Alice Crites. The Fact Check team will analyze statements by the two candidates for accuracy and exaggeration.
Readers are invited to flag errors and misleading claims by either of the candidates by contributing to the online discussion. You can also use the "Contact the Fact Checker" tool to contact us privately with statements that you think deserve to be checked out.
The 90-minute debate will be in the format of a town hall meeting, so it is likely to cover a wide range of subjects, from the economic meltdown to the war in Iraq to presidential character questions. Since this is a live Fact Check, the team will dispense with Pinocchio awards this evening, and focus on giving you a quick guide on the truthfulness or otherwise of the candidates' claims. Join the Fact Checker online!
