PoliGraph is coming

We’re starting a new feature on the blog tomorrow. It’s called PoliGraph, and it will report on whether politicians are telling the truth.

Modeled after PolitiFact, a Pulitizer Prize winning feature started by the St. Petersburg Times, in 2007, PoliGraph will take an in-depth look at political claims made by members of the state’s three major political parties and check them against neutral sources for accuracy.

Our reporting will adhere to the tenants of the best journalism: analysis backed by deep, thorough reporting; research from both primary sources and expert interviews; and independent, non-partisan analysis.

We’ll be working with Catharine Richert from the Humphrey Institute, who has worked for PolitiFact and Congressional Quarterly.

Look for it here tomorrow.
