Washington Post Fact Checker Is 15 years Old Today

From a Washington Post story by Glenn Kessler headlined “Happy 15th birthday, Fact Checker!”:

The Washington Post Fact Checker is 15 years old today, though strictly speaking that statement might merit a Pinocchio.

With a burst of four fact checks on the morning of Sept. 19, 2007 — of statements by Osama bin Laden, former senator Mike Gravel (D-Alaska), Sen. Sam Brownback (R-Kan.) and former senator Fred D. Thompson (R-Tenn.) — our former colleague Michael Dobbs launched the Fact Checker.
