PolitiFact published three articles written by St. Bonaventure University students last week.
The articles were written as part of a workshop conducted by PolitiFact Senior Correspondent Lou Jacobson and Jandoli Institute Executive Director Richard Lee.
- Strong support for notion that a bachelor’s degree means $1 million more in lifetime income
- Does Eric Adams want to ban chocolate milk in NYC schools?
- Claim about Energy Department, gas stoves, China is exaggerated
The workshop will continue during the spring semester. Since the program began in 2020, St. Bonaventure students have written 37 articles for PolitiFact, one of the nation’s leading fact-checking sites.
Founded in 2007, PolitiFact uses traditional journalism techniques to investigate the accuracy of claims in politics, then provides an overall “Truth-O-Meter” rating ranging from True to Pants on Fire. Articles appear on its PolitiFact.com website and are reprinted by its media partners across the country. PolitiFact is owned by the nonprofit Poynter Institute for Media Studies and employs reporters and editors in St. Petersburg, Florida, Washington, D.C., and half a dozen other cities.
