Fact Check 101

Wisconsin Map with workshop locationsFact Check 101

Are you tired of being skeptical about the political television commercials, the phone calls, the email, and the brochures? Are you tired of simply wondering who’s telling the whole truth, the half truths and nothing but the political truths?

Here's a two-page guide (PDF) to political truth seeking. We'd love your feedback, feel free to e-mail your thoughts to: adam.schrager@wpt.org

We've also hosted Fact Check 101 workshops to empower citizens who want to understand more about the campaigns and groups trying to influence their votes. We visited libraries across the state to put on these free workshops where people were encouraged to bring in their questions and we collectively sought the truth.
