“Do Politicians Care If They Get Caught Lying? A study suggests lawmakers are less likely to make false statements when they know fact-checkers are monitoring them.”

Molly Ball discusses what sounds like an interesting paper by Brendan Nyhan of Dartmouth and Jason Reifler of the University of Exeter.  I don’t see a link to the paper in Molly’s article.

UPDATE: Read the paper itself and the NAF report.
