Credibility or Passion

Both are important to compelling social or political commentary and discussion. Unfortunately, in the "blogosphere", too many provide plenty of passion but very little credible fact.

That's why we ask our contributors to be sure to provide appropriate attribution and to check their facts. Also to keep their passion focused on the viewpoints and not the correspondent.

Our two favorite and most used (and most used by our readers to let us know of mistakes) fact checking sites are FactCheck.org (political fact checking) and Snopes.com (Urban Legend validation). We highly recommend both. Also, our resource page provides other valuable fact sources.

We love your passion but need your credibility as well.
