Truth-O-Meter™ Comes to Florida: St. Petersburg Times, The Miami Herald Launch PolitiFact Florida
Date:3/1/2010

The St. Petersburg Times and The Miami Herald have launched PolitiFact Florida, a partnership that uses the Times' Pulitzer Prize-winning fact-checking approach to examine the 2010 campaigns in the Sunshine State. PolitiFact Florida has the same journalistic approach and reader-friendly design as PolitiFact.com, the Times' national fact-checking site.

(PRWEB) March 1, 2010 -- The Truth-O-Meter™ is now in Florida.

Expanding its national network of affiliate sites, PolitiFact.com, the Pulitzer Prize-winning fact-checking Web site of the St. Petersburg Times, has launched a state site in Florida in a partnership with The Miami Herald.

PolitiFact® Florida, which can be accessed online at www.politifact.com/florida, has the same journalistic approach and friendly design as PolitiFact. It is integrated with the national site and uses PolitiFact’s distinctive Truth-O-Meter™ to rate the accuracy of statements by public officials in Florida.

The Florida partnership is the second in a national network of affiliate sites using PolitiFact’s reader-friendly design. PolitiFact Texas, a partnership with the Austin American-Statesman, launched in January. The Times is offering affiliate opportunities to news organizations in other states.

PolitiFact Florida is an expansion of the partnership between the Times and Herald, which merged Tallahassee bureaus in December 2008. Both newspapers publish the work of the combined, six-person team. PolitiFact editor Bill Adair, also the Times’ Washington bureau chief, will lead the Florida team.

“PolitiFact provides a great public service by holding elected officials accountable for what they say,” said Neil Brown, executive editor of the Times.

“This should be an excellent addition to our election coverage. Readers can expect a regular supply of straight-shooting fact-check stories that will help sort through the campaign claims that are already starting to mount up,'” said Anders Gyllenhaal, executive editor of The Miami Herald.

About PolitiFact
PolitiFact.com was launched in 2007 to fact-check the 2008 presidential campaign. In 2009, the site began fact-checking elected officials, lobbying groups, pundits and talk show hosts on issues such as climate change and health care. PolitiFact also launched the Obameter, a feature that tracks and rates more than 500 of President Barack Obama's campaign promises. The site has received numerous awards, including the 2009 Pulitzer Prize for National Reporting, the Digital Edge Award for Best Overall News Site from the Newspaper Association of America, a National Press Foundation award for online journalism, and a Knight Batten Award for Innovation in Journalism.
