Call the doctor! Truthiness in critical condition

Truthiness was in critical condition at PolitiFact Georgia last week.

Our team published three fact checks in a row on health care. The first from presidential hopeful Herman Cain on CT scans flat-lined. One by U.S. Sen. Saxby Chambliss of Georgia on Internal Revenue Service agents and the health care overhaul was DOA.

Another by U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius about hospital care survived and is in good condition.

Even on issues outside of health care, truthiness looked at least a little bit puny. A claim by Donald Trump that the U.S. no longer builds bridges needed major surgery, as did a statement by MARTA’s chairman that the transit system is getting safer.
