World Relief (Fact Checker)
Regarding the Jan. 14 letter to the editor from Mr. Shade, we do agree on one thing: It is getting harder and harder to fact-check information.
The question is, “Who’s fact-checking the fact-checkers?”
And the answer is, of course, “We are.”
When I researched the original information from Mr. Shade’s letter about the COVID bill and Asian spending, I did a great deal of research.
I didn’t just go to www.snopes.com. But, I chose to cite snopes.com because they always identify the original sources they use.
In this case the main source was the bill itself, which I read (https://www.ncsl.org/ncsl-in-dc/publications-and-resources/covid-19-economic-relief-bill-stimulus.aspx).
For the record, I am an Independent voter and I don’t “endorse” either party.
I responded to Mr. Shade’s letter because I am concerned with the misinformation that continues to divide our country.
