It's True! We're two years old!

Happy Birthday to us: Two years and 230 ratings on the Truth-O-Meter
Happy Birthday to us: Two years and 230 ratings on the Truth-O-Meter

Believe it or not, it's been two years since we published our first PolitiFact Rhode Island Truth-O-Meter ruling.

On June 25, 2010, we joined a partnership with PolitiFact.com that has grown to include eleven states.

Since then, we’ve published 230 Truth-O-Meter rulings, checking claims from politicians, talk-show hosts, bloggers, e-mailers, labor leaders and even a billboard.  Our goal remains the same: to help readers separate fact from fiction in the public discourse.

For the record, here’s our scorecard so far: True: 44. Mostly True: 30. Half True: 37. Mostly False: 32. False: 55. Pants on Fire: 32.

Remember, If you see or hear a claim you’d like us to check, please send it to politifact@providencejournal.com.
