Ronald Reagan said facts are stubborn things.Daniel Patrick Moynihan said everyone is entitled to his own opinion, but not his own facts.In my role as a fact-checker, I would judge those statements “mostly false.”They may have been mostly true when they were uttered, but the fact-checking fad that has swept through the news media in recent years has made those statements — in the word of a presidential press secretary of that earlier era — “inoperative.” Judging by what we’re reading and hearing, in today’s political world, facts are pretty adaptable, and everybody is free to pick and choose the ones they like.Which is, when you get down to it, what the fact-checkers are doing.True: Fact-checking process is subjectiveBy Mike Deupree | 7 October 2012http://thegazette.com/2012/10/07/true-fact-checking-process-...Remember,Faith in GodHope in the future based on knowing the truthCharity to our fellow men and womenDuty to ourselves, our community, and our country.Gilbert
