Please, liberals, please quit referring to factcheck.org as the ultimate source of fact or fiction, I don't buy it. Factcheck.org is run by the Annenberg Foundation, and is extremely liberal. In fact, Obama has ties to the Annenberg foundation.

CAC was a project in the Chicago school system funded with a grant of $50 million from the Annenberg Foundation in 1995. William Ayers, unrepentant terrorist and former member of the Weather Underground, was the driving force in securing the grant in 1995, and was one of 3 founders of the CAC. After the CAC was created, Obama, then a third-year associate at a small Chicago civil rights law firm, was named as the Chairman of the CAC Board, which oversaw the fiscal side of the CAC (it decided how the grant money would be spent, as well as having the responsibility for raising matching funds from other charitable foundations).

Factcheck.org is about as unbiased as ACORN.

Precisely. The article on this organization needs to be modified in Wiki to reflect this association.

Thanks for pointing it out -- very important, especially since many issues are "put down" by reference to factcheck.org.
