Bill Clinton has been active on the campaign trail for his wife, New York Senator Hillary Clinton. It appears that reporters have also been active tracking the former president on the campaign trail. A new report by the Project for Excellence in Journalism finds that only Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are getting more coverage than Bill Clinton.
The feature examines statements made by Minnesota politicians and checks them for accuracy. Based on data analysis, document reviews and interviews with non-partisan analysts, statements are rated either true, false or inconclusive. PoliGraph is a collaboration between Minnesota Public Radio News and the Humphrey School of Public Affairs at the University of Minnesota.
