Thread: Fact Checking Is Important, People!

    It can be a good starting point but it sure isn't the authority on anything.

    A friend recently sent me a link to Wiki to reinforce a "fact" he was trying to support. I edited the Wiki page and sent it back to him (which is my point).

    Popular opinion and facts aren't the same thing. Popular opinion (like Wiki pages) can be changed, facts cannot.

    Wrongful death lawsuits are probably pretty expensive for a company, this may help.

    I would think that the airline would have a really difficult time winning that case.

    Just saw the clip again on the Daily Show. I swear, it doesn't get old with me. I can't believe there's not a scintilla of awareness in that woman's voice.
