I saw it on the Internet, it must be true

Do you get those chain e-mails with all the claims about stuff going on in America and the world?

I’ve never figured out the personal and pastoral etiquette of responding to or ignoring claims in such communication.

I’m a big fan of Snopes and PolitiFact, though. This painstakingly thorough and interesting (okay, interesting to me) analysis of a recent claim by a liberal commentator is a great example of why I love it. Long live old-fashioned fact checking and reporting.
