Analysis of PolitiFact: GOP/Conservatives Significantly Less Honest

Thought this was an interesting post by cinematical:

I assume that most people here know about PolitiFact, the non-partisan fact checking organization run by the St. Petersburg Times. In a time when rampant dishonesty and factual distortions muddle the political rhetoric on all sides, this resource is invaluable.

The other day, an idea popped into my head: how often, according to PolitiFact, have politicians, advocacy groups, and media figures wandered into the realm of lies and unreality, and which political persuasion is more likely to do so?

PolitiFact doesn't provide aggregate tallies that would answer these questions - so I decided to break the data down myself. Check out the results below the fold.

read what this all means & how cinematical got to his/her conclusion....
