PolitiFact's Florida editor Angie Drobnic Holan03/22/12 Mitch Perry
Last Call Thursday | Listen to this entire show:
PolitiFact's Angie Holan Drobnic has been there since the conception of the fact-checking section of the Tampa Bay Times in 2007. A year later, it won a Pulitzer Prize.
Recently named as editor of PolitiFact Florida, Holan fielded questions regarding some of the fact-checking site's more controversial rulings - none more controversial that calling Democratic charges that House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan's proposed 2011 budget was a plan to "End Medicare."
But though those controversial calls dominated the program, the fact is that PolitiFact has changed newspaper reporting, and for the better, for the most part.
