PolitiFact CA Finishes First Year Of Fact-Checking


PolitiFact California is celebrating a year of fact-checking claims and statements by politicians and beyond.

And it has been a busy first year.

PolitiFact California reporter Chris Nichols and Capital Public Radio Chief Content Officer Joe Barr discuss the inaugural year of the Golden State division of fact-checkers.
