Our May High Five

Our analysis of Gov. Scott Walker’s new way of talking about job creation topped PolitiFact Wisconsin’s High Five for May, our list of the most-clicked items for the month.

So did items about Benghazi (times 2), jobs and private-school choice.

The items our readers have loved the longest

Nearly a year ago we introduced the High Five, a review of the PolitiFact Wisconsin items -- fact-checks and sometimes other articles -- that got the most page-views the previous month.

As you’d expect, the most popular items each month had been posted in recent days or weeks.

But some of our most-clicked items were published months ago. Or even longer. 

Fact-checking the GOP

Wisconsin’s job growth in 2013 was the best since the 1990s?

At least 70 percent of residents approve of the state’s wildly controversial collective bargaining reform law?

When Republicans ran Washington, they let the food stamp rolls skyrocket?

We revisit these and other recent claims by Wisconsin Republicans ahead of their annual state convention.

High Five: Money, money, money

From minimums to millions, factchecks on claims about money attracted the most page-views in January 2013.
