A recommendation: A debate fact check by color

Next with Kyle Clark. 9NEWS @ 6. 10/20/2016

Hey. May we make a recommendation? Por favor?

Our recommendations are always for someone else's work. Tonight, it's from Spanish language broadcaster Univision.

They fact-checked the last presidential debate line-by-line, and highlighted the lies and half-truths.

Lies are in red. Misleading statements in yellow.

Check it out

You can click on each line to see the statement, and the fact check, provided you habla Espanol.

Even if you don't speak Spanish, it's a striking, visual way to fact-check an entire debate as a whole. And it's proof that after these debates, when we fact check each candidate an equal number of times, we can create a false equivalency, suggesting they were equally misleading or equally truthful.

And here's our 9NEWS debate fact check, if you're looking for it.

Know of something cool we should look at? Get our attention with #HeyNext.
