The Pulitzer Prize-winning fact-checking website PolitiFact will provide live fact checks throughout the vice-presidential debate on Tuesday.
The 90-minute debate, which begins at 8 p.m. central time at Longwood University in Farmville, Va., will be fact-checked by 18 PolitiFact staffers in real time. PolitiFact, with which Reboot Illinois has partnered to create PolitiFact Illinois, won the Pulitzer Prize for its coverage of the 2008 election.
