WaPo “Factchecker” on “Jim Crow 2.0” Senate debate

Accurately describing itself as a “reader service,” this new Fact Checker analysis carefully details the arguments on both sides and the relevant provisions of the new laws in key states (like Georgia and Texas), including the DOJ and other lawsuits filed against these new laws. I noted one small error in the piece, where it describes Georgia’s response to the DOJ lawsuit as the “complaint” (a description all the more confusing since it correctly used the same term “complaint” to refer to DOJ’s filing a few paragraphs earlier). Apart from that minor glitch, however, the piece struck me as exemplary of the independent and impartial journalism that the public needs on this kind of issue.
