I guess this assumes that Bloomberg is impartiall

No, it assumes that any organization that claims to fact check cites their sources so anyone can verify the data. Verbal claims don't have citations that can be followed back to generally accepted statistics; that's the job of fact-checkers. If Bloomberg doesn't back up their corrections with citations to reputable sources, they're doing a bad job and should be ignored in favor of a group that will back up its research.

Regardless, someone has to determine the extent to which the politicians are being accurate, cherry-picking statistics, massaging the numbers after the fact, or just plain making stuff up. Which, to call a spade a spade, is lying.

I just learned that the Bloomberg fact check will not be part of the online stream, so it's a moot point anyway.

Thanks for the warning! I was able to successfully avoid not just the debate, but all coverage of the debate.
