Debate Fact Checking

DEBATE FACT CHECKING….Dan Froomkin of the Washington Post wants bloggers to form a gigantic decentralized fact checking consortium for tonight’s debate.

Sounds good to me. I’ll be liveblogging the debate tonight starting at 9 pm Eastern, so come on by and join the fact checking army in the comment thread. It’s a little hard to liveblog and keep up with comments at the same time, but I’ll do my best to follow along and fact check in real time. Should be fun.
