    It isn't the fact checking, and how much or little of it that they do that has destroyed their credibility. The journalists have destroyed their credibility by selectively deciding what they will report on, and how they report on it.

    For example, Glenn Beck recently compared the first 10 questions asked to Michelle Obama and Ann Romney when appearing on the view with Barbra Walters (she claims to be a journalist). Michell was asked easy questions from the start, between giggles from her panel. Meanwhile Ann was grilled in a very cold and demeaning way.

    If journalists could get rid of their overtly liberal bias, that would help.

    Not when it embarasses the Republican candidate. Romney's campaign staff has already said it has no place for factcheckers. You have to believe!!
