We've done lots of election guides to help you sort out the truth in the 2012 campaign -- so many that we thought it would be helpful to have a short guide to our guides!
So here's a quick look at the guides we have produced:
PolitiFact's Greatest Hits -- The 26 most significant fact-checks in the presidential race.
Has President Obama kept his campaign promises? -- A summary of ratings from our Obameter, which tracks Barack Obama's 2008 campaign promises.
Medicare 'cuts' and the talking point that won't die -- We trace the talking point about paying for Obamacare with "cuts" to Medicare (with a fun video!).
Scariest lines of 2012 campaign -- The scare tactics of the campaign. Don't be afraid! They're not true!
Twisting the truth on China -- Both parties have used China as a villain, often stretching the truth about their opponents.
Fact-checking foreign policy -- A guide to our fact-checks on international affairs.
Medicare attack lines -- Our guide to the Medicare scare tactics from both sides.
A scorecard on the economy under Obama -- The ups and downs for everything from the poverty rate to the price of ground chuck.
Fact-checking immigration -- Our fact-checks on the border fence, the DREAM Act and more.
