Top 10 most fact-checked people on the Truth-O-Meter

@politifact

We suspected that President Barack Obama was the most fact-checked person on the Truth-O-Meter, but we confirmed it when we compiled data to mark the 500th time we’ve fact-checked him.

Curious about who else has been fact-checked most often? We were, too. So we created a list of the Top 10 most fact-checked people on the Truth-O-Meter, which includes our state affiliates. Numbers are accurate as of Jan. 22, 2014.

As you might suspect, we fact-check presidential candidates the most frequently. Since our 2007 launch, we’ve fact-checked Obama the most, followed by 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney and 2008 nominee John McCain.

Florida Gov. Rick Scott came in at No. 6 while Sen. Marco Rubio came in at No. 10. Read the full report from PolitiFact.
