Meters tackle history, landfill waste

Trust your Truth-O-Meter and Deal-O-Meter to master topics as different as fiscal responsibility, President Ronald Reagan and landfill waste. Last week, the Truth-O-Meter examined an attack that blamed two Democratic congressmen from Georgia for the nation’s fiscal problems.   It also performed a second check of former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich’s knowledge of Reagan history. The Republican presidential candidate keeps name-dropping the conservative hero. Now, he’s comparing himself to him. To top it off, the Deal-O-Meter rated a promise by Gov. Nathan Deal that he will reduce landfill waste.   Watch out. PolitiFact Georgia’s a quick study. To comment on our findings, hit the "like" button on our Facebook page.
