Deception Log for Station Managers

This FlackCheck.org video illustrates an analysis by the Annenberg Public Policy Center conducted for the Center for Responsive Politics which found that from December 1, 2011 through June 1, 2012, 85% of the dollars spent on presidential ads by four top-spending third-party groups known as 501(c)(4)s were spent on ads containing at least one claim ruled deceptive by fact-checkers at FactCheck.org, PolitiFact.com, the Fact Checker at the Washington Post or the Associated Press.
