With the U.S. 2012 presidential campaign gaining momentum, IJNet is offering readers the chance to follow candidates with an iPhone app that fact-checks their statements.
PolitiFact Mobile gauges the truthiness of U.S. politicians in a variety of ways, just like the Pulitzer-winning website of the same name staffed by reporters of the St. Petersburg Times, so you can track who is fibbing and who is flip-flopping on the issues.
Updated July 6, the $1.99 app is now also compatible with the iPad.
Here’s how to enter:
1) Follow IJNet on Twitter (@ijnet)
2) Tweet the following line just once: “I want to win Politifact Mobile from @ijnet because [insert reason]
The most clever -- but clean -- tweets win. Contest ends Friday, July 22, at 11 a.m, PDT, and we'll choose the winners within 36 hours. Best of luck to everyone who enters.
Many thanks to Politifact's Bill Adair for donating the promo codes!
