A year ago this week, Austin’s KUT, 90.5 FM, launched what proved to be weekly radio visits with PolitiFact Texas about our Truth-O-Meter items.

We marked the anniversary with a cream-filled chocolate cupcake and two candles -- one to grow on. KUT reporter Nathan Bernier kindly lit the candles.

Just before, Bernier -- subbing in for KUT's news director, Emily Donahue, who usually conducts the PolitiFact interviews -- quizzed us about a claim by Republican Craig James that we rated Pants on Fire. Listen to that report along with other KUT segments on PolitiFact Texas here.
