They do an exceptional job of fact checking, sometimes the numbers sound unbelievable but are in fact true but other times the trail leads to a single questionable source. With so much false or at least ambiguous information that no one can take the time to check every source we really need More or Less or similar coverage for everything at least until we pass through this beginning of the Information Age and get a firmer grasp of what we are doing with the internet. It’s like the Victorian age for industry, lots of good things came out of it eventually but they had so many things wrong at the time.
