Fact-checking is fun and edifying

I'd like to see the end of taking things at face value. It's just too easy for politicians to take advantage of public opinion by saying anything they want to get what they want, then forgetting about the consequences. It's time to stop asking "what can we say?" and start asking "what can we do?"
The job of a skeptic is to investigate the unexplained; not to explain the uninvestigated.
