We've got a treat for you, but it's just for today

Do you like to be frightened?

Here’s a scary thought: Some people refer to this as the "Post Truth Era."


Has twisting the truth gotten so out of hand that it’s now become an Era?!

Does this mean politicians and pundits can now be excused for ignoring the facts?

Not on our watch.

We’ll continue to shine a light in dark corners and scare those who are masking the truth.

But we need your help. Join the Truth Squad today.

Here's what we are doing just for Halloween. Anyone who donates any amount today will get a Pants on Fire! sticker and a note of thanks from the PolitiFact staff. (Just make sure to leave your address.)

So drop a little treat in our bag and we’ll send you a surprise guaranteed not to scare you.
