TULSA, Oklahoma — The first question was about Bigfoot.
“If a U.S. senator said that Bigfoot is real, would you feel compelled to assert that, actually, Bigfoot is a myth?” asked Scott Pendleton.
Jon Greenberg, a national staff writer for PolitiFact, took that one.
“If people were talking about Bigfoot — if it’s in the news — we might take our time to do that,” he said. “But if it’s a purely random statement, I don’t see us running something on it.”
Aaron Sharockman, executive director of PolitiFact, followed with a comparison.
