EconoCheck: new resource for reporting economic claims of candidates

IRE and the Sunlight Foundation launched EconoCheck, a resource for journalists who want to fact-check the economic claims made by politicians.

This will make it easier for folks to understand key economic indicators and how they are created. Also, there are links to the source data so journalists can download the files themselves.

Bill Allison, Sunlight’s editorial director, blogged about how journalists can use the data to report on the things politicians say about the economy.
