Bloomberg TV will conduct ‘onscreen fact checks’ in real time during tonight’s presidential debate

During tonight’s presidential debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, Bloomberg TV will conduct real time “onscreen fact checks” of statements made by the candidates.

During tonight’s presidential debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, Bloomberg TV will conduct real time “onscreen fact checks” of statements made by the candidates.

According to POLITICO, the channel’s decision to conduct the fact checks “sets Bloomberg apart from the other major TV networks, none of whom have committed to doing on-screen fact checks during the debate.”

Other networks will save the fact-checking for the analysis segments after the debate.

While the media continues to catch heat for failing to follow-up on Trump’s lies and obfuscations, especially in the wake of Matt Lauer’s disastrous performance interviewing Trump during an NBC presidential forum where he let the candidate off the hook on several false statements, Hillary supporters have demanded a more aggressive fact-checking approach to the upcoming debates.

“We’re really focused on this opportunity that Hillary has to speak directly to the voters on the issues. But we are concerned that Donald Trump may lie, he may throw misinformation out there, and that Hillary will have to spend all of her time trying to correct the record rather than talking about the things she wants to accomplish,” Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook said on CBS This Morning.

“All that we’re asking if that the record be checked. So if Donald Trump lies, which he has repeatedly done in the past, that that be simply checked.”


Spokespeople for the networks told POLITICO that on-screen fact checks would be hard to execute in real-time, which is why they were opting out. That leaves the real-time fact-checking up to NBC’s Lester Holt, the debate moderator, or Clinton herself.

NPR says they’ll also conduct real time fact checks of the debate online.

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin

    Howdy, I do think your web site could possibly be having browser compatibility
    problems. When I take a look at your blog in Safari, it looks fine however, when opening in Internet Explorer,
    it has some overlapping issues. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!
    Other than that, excellent blog!
