Inside the Meter

Waiting for the Google truck

We've gotten some great feedback about the launch of our Obameter in the past few days, but we've also heard from many readers who've had difficulty finding specific promises in our big database.

The problem is that our Obameter database has not yet been fully indexed by Google, which provides the "Search PolitiFact" function on the site. We feel like we're waiting for the Google truck to come to our neighborhood. (And we can hear the driver ringing the bell just a couple of streets away!)

We're hoping it will just be a matter of another day or two, but until then, your best bet to find any particular promise is to go to our Obameter subject list.

And if you see the Google truck, please send it our way!
