One of the criticisms many people have about the web and social media is that they allow anyone to say or write whatever they want regardless of accuracy, but the corollary is that this same democratization of media allows anyone to challenge those statements and fact-check their validity. Based on that principle, PolitiFact — the Pulitzer Prize-winning “truth vigilante” service that is run by the 
Tampa Bay Times — wants to expand its reach beyond just politicians and so has launched a new feature called PunditFact.
