This cheese allegedly hails from Madison, Wisc.
PolitiFact’s “Truth-o-Meter” has expanded to Wisconsin, announces St. Petersburg Time‘s Washington Bureau Chief Bill Adair over the long weekend.
“Wisconsin has a long tradition of great political characters,” Adair told FishbowlDC, ignoring our question on whether he’d be eating more cheese as this gets underway. “It’s a great state for the Truth-O-Meter.” The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel will launch PolitiFact Wisconsin – the sixth state to utilize the fact-checking service. The others, so far, are Texas, Florida, Rhode Island, Georgia and Ohio.
The Truth-O-Meter has kept a watchful eye on ABC’s “This Week” since White House correspondent Jake Tapper was interim host and continues to watch over the facts (or lack thereof) of the show and its guests with host Christiane Amanpour.
