If Your Time is short

  • Yes, the site looks different!
  • We hope it gives you a better reading experience and loads faster.
  • We're working out the kinks. See something? Email us: [email protected]

Does our website look different to you? You're not seeing things. We’ve done a huge overhaul on the front-end of PolitiFact.com. 

Not much of substance has changed with the new look. All of the PolitiFact fact-checking and stories that you’ve come to love are still on our website: every politician fact-check, scorecard, subject page, and story.

Our new site is simpler and more modern. A top navigation bar — "≡ Menu" on the top left — indicates a drop-down menu where you can see all the different fact-checking states we offer, plus new ways to access people and topics. 

Having issues finding something or using a site feature? Let us know: [email protected] Other feedback? Don’t hesitate to reach out. 

Thank you for understanding as we unveil this new look for PolitiFact. And thank you for reading our fact-checking. Democracy is better for it.
