FlackCheck.org awards: two stinkweeds to WTSP in Tampa Bay, Florida for casting a legitimate candidate complaint about a deceptive third party attack ad as whining and continuing to air an ad its own news cast had labeled deceptive; and one orchid for factchecking the deceptive ad and posting the piece online.
FlackCheck.org is the political literacy companion site to the award-winning FactCheck.org. We provide resources to help students recognize flaws in arguments in general and political ads in particular.
FlackCheck.org is funded by an endowment provided by the Annenberg Foundation to support the Leonore Annenberg Institute for Civics.
