It's all immigration, all the time in today's PolitiFact Oregon Roundup. Rick Perry, Glenn Beck and Lou Dobbs are among those whose claims are up for inspection.
Glenn Beck told his Monday radio audience that he’s moving to Dallas and building a radio and television studio. To welcome him, we assessed Beck’s pre-Texas standing on the Truth-O-Meter.
As Glenn Beck ends his run with Fox News, we take a look back at how Beck has fared on the Truth-O-Meter on everything from Van Jones to health insurance for dogs.

After making more than 100 Truth-O-Meter rulings, the editors who rate the items for PolitiFact Ohio looked back over the year and selected the Top 10 for 2010.

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.

Politicos had money and a mosque on their minds last week. We covered statements on the federal government's money woes, casinos, a tax break for low-income families, and the mosque near ground zero. A diverse crew including conservative TV host Glenn Beck and Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Michael Thurmond graced our pages. Some did better than others on the Truth-O-Meter and its cousin, the Flip-O-Meter, which measures flip-flops, but all escaped our worst rating: Pants On Fire. Maybe next week. Here's a roundup of our rulings.
We'll be fact-checking speeches from Beck's "Restoring Honor" rally at the Lincoln Memorial. In the meantime, we review how he's fared on the Truth-O-Meter.
