Not-for-Profit Full Fact and the Channel 4’s Fact Check Blog are excellent resources to get behind the media spin and headlines. Politicians are guilty of taking opponent’s quotes out of context, misusing statistics and, dare we say it, telling bare faced lies (or porkies). These are the fact checks of the leaders’ speeches.
“The great enemy of the truth is very often not the lie — deliberate, contrived and dishonest — but the myth — persistent, persuasive, and unrealistic.” John F. Kennedy, Yale Commencement Address, (11 June 1962).

“First, what does truth require? It requires us to face the facts as they are, not to involve ourselves in self-deception; to refuse to think merely in slogans. If we are to work for the future of the city, let us deal with the realities as they actually are, not as they might have been, and not as we wish they were. […] The truth doesn’t die.” John F. Kennedy, Address at the Free University of Berlin (26 June 1963).
