  • Annenberg Political Fact Checker

    We are a nonpartisan, nonprofit, "consumer advocate" for voters that aims to reduce the level of deception and confusion in U.S. politics. We monitor the factual accuracy of what is said by major U.S. political players in the form of TV ads, debates, speeches, interviews, and news releases. Our goal is to apply the best practices of both journalism and scholarship, and to increase public knowledge and understanding.

    The Annenberg Political Fact Check is a project of the Annenberg Public Policy Center of the University of Pennsylvania. The APPC was established by publisher and philanthropist Walter Annenberg in 1994 to create a community of scholars within the University of Pennsylvania that would address public policy issues at the local, state, and federal levels.

    The APPC accepts NO funding from business corporations, labor unions, political parties, lobbying organizations or individuals. It is funded primarily by the Annenberg Foundation.
    I checked for previous posts about these guys and the only thread I found was one from 2006:

    Here's the Foundation's website:

    I haven't figured out where they get their money, though. Let me know if you see a link that explains that.
    Dude, seriously, WHAT handkerchief?

    I've actually heard the Annenberg Foundation advertised on NPR quite often, for whatever that's worth.
