The national fact check web sites provided in the "Liar, Liar, Pants on Fire!" blog have counterparts for Michigan politics. Two web sites that can help us discern reality from illusion, especially for the upcoming multiple ballot proposals are:
Michigan Truth Squad, a project of the Center for Michigan, which "helps blow the whistle on false and misleading Michigan political speech" by rating political statements from "no foul" to "flagrant foul". The link will take you to their calls on the political ads for the various upcoming ballot proposals
the Citizens Research Council which provides factual, independent information on state organizational and financial issues. The link will take you to their objective analyses of the November ballot proposals.
Take moment and do a little reading, you may be surprised by what's behind the scenes! Or... maybe you won't be!
