Mostly I follow Snopes, although I don't like their new format.

Is PolitiFact the one with "mostly true" "mostly false " and 'pants on fire"? That site cracks me up.

No. Most of them are just partisan organizations fronting as neutral.

Huh, only 14% of republicans on this poll say they do. Coincidence? I think not.

Always and several different ones. The news media anymore is so in Clinton's back pocket that you can't trust anything, nothing that they say. They report very little about the misgivings and mistrust that Hillary has done and report any little tiny Trump event or word that is misspoken. I'm deleting my Detroit newspaper just because of that.

If they would calling Hillary crooked, a fraud or similar which really describes what she is, then I may start to pay attention. Until then I may read it once in a while when it comes up while looking for something else, but I don't go searching for it on purpose.

I will recommend you try take a tour outside the echo chamber. You may learn the world is not so black and white.

If you're talking to me I'd recommend exactly the same tour outside your echo chamber. If not never mind.

It was really for anyone who subscribe to the idea their side is always right by default ref. the statement above. Don't worry about me, I question everyone and everything.

No, the closest to those I follow is Nate Silver. I do refer to them often though, whenever a politician says something questionable or clearly false. Which is obviously often.

I find them funny because they're in fact biased.
Anybody can play the statistics fact checking game to prove anything right or wrong.

I don't follow ANY organization, as I basically don't do any social media. But if I had social media accounts, the VERY FIRST organizations I would be wholly skeptical of, are those that say they have/know ALL the 'facts'. In this regard, I'm always reminded of a thought from Disraeli-
"There are three kinds of lies:
Lies, damned lies, and statistics."

I like fact checking, but it's rare that social media has any facts worth reading in my opinion. Most of what i see are just BS political memes with limited basis in facts at all
