Benen: Why Gregory's wrong about "Meet the Press" and fact-checking

Washington Monthly
David Gregory says having PolitiFact fact-check "This Week" guests is an "interesting idea" that his Sunday show won't copy. "People can fact-check 'Meet the Press' every week on their own terms," he says. Steve Benen points out that news consumers "aren't well equipped to do this on their own, and rely on professional news outlets to provide them with reliable information."
