As we’ve done for the past three years, we will be selecting the year's most significant falsehood. We have begun putting together a list of contenders and would love to hear your suggestions before we unveil the list of finalists.

You can email your suggestions to or tweet them to us @PolitiFact.

We’ll announce our finalists in about a week.
