FACT CHECK UPDATE: Also Slams 60-Plus Association Ads

Earlier this week, we fact-checked the ads running against Democratic Representatives Harry Mitchell, Ann Kirkpatrick and Gabrielle Giffords.  We gave them a "C-"/misleading.

Today, one of the big kahunas in fact checking,, evaluated these ads, too.  Their conclusion?  Well, the headline says it all: "Misleading Onslaught by 60 Plus".  They did a very good job dissecting the two claims that our article glossed over as "scare tactics": losing your doctors and hurting the quality of care.

I highly recommend reading their article and supporting the non-profit organization that has led the way in fact checking.
