PolitiFact, the fact-checking service run by Bill Adair, Washington Bureau Chief of the St. Petersburg Times, has announced that it will continue the feature with Christiane Amanpour, who debuts as the new host of ABC’s “This Week” on Sunday.
The fact-checking feature began at the direction of interim host Jake Tapper.
“We’ll keep checking the guests – and the pundits – every Sunday,” Adair told FishbowlDC.
An ABC News spokesperson said the decision to continue to fact-check the show came easily: “Our viewers have responded well to what we are doing with PolitiFact. Everyone here is very supportive and there wasn’t a question as to whether we will keep doing it.”
