Hyperactive Fact-Checkers  —  I think it's probably a good thing that so many media organizations now run these “fact-check” items about political ads and rhetoric (except that it's going to confuse the next generation of magazine interns about what fact-checking is about) but one thing I've noticed is a tendency to get overly vigilant.
