ProJo to launch PolitiFact this week

June 24, 2010

The Providence Journal is reportedly set to launch its version of PolitiFact — a Pulitizer-winning initiative piloted by the St. Petersburg Times to measure the truthiness of political statements — this week. Word is that there will be a soft launch tomorrow, followed by a more pronounced effort on Sunday.

The Phoenix’s David Scharfenberg previously reported on how the ProJo’s Politifact effort will be led by Gene Emery and State House-turned-economics reporter Cynthia Needham.

This much is sure: with more RI candidates joining the 2010 campaign season seemingly by the day, there will be no shortage of rhetoric to parse.
