PolitiFact Georgia roasts pants, brightens lives

Nothing beats a good, warm fire to brighten our lives during these frigid winter days. So last week, AJC PolitiFact Georgia set two pairs of pants ablaze. The first Pants On Fire ruling belonged to TV and radio host Glenn Beck, who compared a real Ohio town to fictional Bedford Falls of the classic holiday movie "It's a Wonderful Life." The second belonged to AMC hit show "The Walking Dead," which blew up Atlanta's Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as part of the Zombie Apocalypse. Some pairs survived intact. President Barack Obama did OK and a crime ranking earned a Half True, but the britches of the National Football League Players Association got singed.
