World Relief (Fact Checker)


Lock Haven

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.
