Who knew fact-checking was part of journalism?!

A couple of days ago, John Sununu was on CNN’s Starting Point with Soledad O’Brien discussing the Presidential election. He repeated a new Romney Campaign talking point about how the President had reduced Medicare benefits. It’s a complete lie AND he was very rude to O’Brien when she called him on it. You can watch his boorish behavior and lying below.

Yesterday, O’Brien followed up on their conversation with an act of actual journalism–she fact checked him and then told us the results.

It’s such a relief to see some actual journalism once in a while.

    Rare indeed. O’Brien should be lauded.
