Re: 60 to 70% accurate?

The problem is made worse by trying to categorise the sources as left, right, reliable etc. These are largely subjective, making the categories biased.

What would be better would be posting a link with each 'fact' to the source of that fact, so readers could click back through the trail and judge for themselves whether they believe the actual source.
