In this age of information and mobile phones with Google in our pocket, I ask myself, and hereby you: Why don't politicians get fact checked immediately?
I guess that a lot of what a politician says is free speech and his own opinion and cannot directly be corrected but, if we take the good Mr. Trump as an example (and I know I beat a dead horse at this time), we have a lot of occasions where a reporter with a phone could just invalidate most of what he is saying.
This is also highly noticeable on campaigns where a lot of politicians make ludicrous statements or straight up lie to their supporters. As a person who watches the political downfall of the American democratic system with great pain, I try to comprehend how people are still putting up with this utter nonsense.
Why is there no public or government agency immediately fact checking most of what politicians are saying? The truth, even when not a lot of people care, should be the most important thing.
