Four false claims are now vying for our Whopper of the Year award. We announced the finalists earlier this week and explained why we advanced each claim.
We hope you’ll continue to share your feedback and help us choose the worst factual blunder. For a quick review of the contenders, you can check out this summary.
We also have videos of each one below. They are past episodes of Fact Check TV about each finalist. For reference, I’ve listed each nominee above the corresponding episode.
Mayor Jerry Sanders: “We laid off 17 percent of the workforce in San Diego.”
County Supervisor Bill Horn: “During the civil rights movement I worked for Ralph Abernathy and went to jail over the rights of the minority.”
San Diego Unified Trustee Shelia Jackson: “It’s not appropriate for people to come to us and be upset. We didn’t even know what the criteria was, we didn’t even tell the staff which direction we wanted.”
Convention Center Expansion point man Steve Cushman: “No general fund.”
