FACT CHECKING Where you can do it

FACT CHECKING WEBSITE links and Information about the subject

I’d like to post a bunch of links to fact checking websites where you can compare whether or what is true or not. NOTE:  There is some ongoing discussion about the net about which ones are biased, and I am not yet experienced in this, so you are in the same boat that I am as to whether they are valid or not. I quit when I got tired of looking.  As always, you can contact me if you find a good link to add to this list.
