Video Fact-Checking Clinton
Fact-checking has become a popular, and important part of political journalism. As The Post's Shailagh Murray and Jonathan Weisman report today, "in a presidential contest involving three sitting senators, embellishment of legislative records may be an inevitability."
YouTube user jedreport couldn't agree more. This video combines Hillary Clinton's recent comments about a trip she took to Bosnia as first lady, with actual news reports of the trip. There's a bit of a difference:
The video features our own Fact Checker blog, which gave Clinton's Bosnia comments four Pinocchios. And comedian Sinbad, who traveled with Clinton to Bosnia, also disputes the candidate's claims of hardship.
UPDATE: Here's the full CBS News report that's featured in the video above, courtesy of our partners at CBS News:
