Flack Check

Bill Moyers addresses the toipc:

We’re saturated with deceptive political advertising — aided and abetted now with spending by citizens, corporations and super PACs that seems to know no bounds. Add to that relatively cheap “buys” on the media landscape including television, the web, print media and social networks, and there’s no place for the electorate to escape.
But help is on the way. This weekend on Moyers & Company, Bill asked political communication expert Kathleen Hall Jamieson to decode the political misinformation campaigns of 2012 thus far. Jamieson runs the Annenberg Public Policy Center at the University of Pennsylvania, including the sites FactCheck.org and FlackCheck.org.
Sample: Could Lincoln Get Elected today?

Jamieson said the people can ask broadcast networks to prove the allegations in political ads are true, but the networks are making a ton of money off the ads, 
they do have the right to deny running an ad from a Super PAC, & PACs in general, but it is currently a no holds barred scenario.
