John Adams (1735 - 1826)

PolitiFact is run by editors and reporters from the Tampa Bay Times. . . . PolitiFact staffers research statements and rate their accuracy on the Truth-O-Meter, from True to False. The most ridiculous falsehoods get the lowest rating, Pants on Fire.” - Snopes was founded in 1995, is supported by advertisements, and is not affiliated with other publication or any political group.
