The case of Donald Trump and his inflated Phoenix rally attendance numbers ow.ly/PDX4b
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump took his controversial but increasingly popular act to Phoenix, July 11, 2015, drawing a feverish reception among a crowd of Maricopa County Republicans. But just how big was the crowd? The ever-braggadocious Trump described an audience of 10,000 to 15,000 to 20,000 people coming to see him. The reality is the crowd was big, but not that big, as MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow pointed out.

The claim is largely accurate but misses that a chunk of the noncitizens in federal prison are there for violating immigration law, not other crimes. http://bitly.com/1J91qf0

This hoax got plenty of people, even in the extended PolitiFact family. But no, Beyonce and Jay-Z are NOT trying to buy rights to the Confederate flag, nor could they http://ow.ly/Pp30k

Fox's Harris Faulkner tied a fingerprinting program targeting illegal immigrants to the murder of a San Francisco woman. The facts are more nuanced.  http://ow.ly/PkRxS

A fact you probably won't hear from Chris Christie. Donna Brazile says the N.J. has overseen 9 credit downgrades while in office. The Truth-O-Meter says Mostly True. http://ow.ly/P6yks

Why not be fair and unbiased and call it inarticulate, not false. He explained his point to you. In that context, he was not completely incorrect. Somewhat misspoken, perhaps.

Gavin McInnes claimed that 50 percent of murders in Texas are linked to illegal immigrants. That's wrong. Also, McInnes called us a "dingbat." http://ow.ly/P3zGy
