Oops. My bad. I was wrong. Mea culpa. Over the course of 2013, PolitiFact Georgia has unearthed information that directly contradicts a claim we’ve attempted to fact-check. In some instances, the speaker has admitted the error of the original claim. PolitiFact Georgia decided to revisit some of our best fact checks in which someone, or an organization, corrected a statement when pressed by PolitiFact Georgia. Summaries of a few of our favorites of the year can be found below. To comment on our rulings or suggest one of your own, go to our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/politifact.georgia). You can also follow us on Twitter through our Twitter handle @politifactga. Full versions, including full coverage of the Lie of the Year, can be found at: www.politifact.com/georgia/.
