FactCheck.org: When I saw the unflappable Brooks Jackson--director of Annenberg Political Fact Check and veteran journalist for the AP, Wall Street Journal, and CNN--on NOW with Bill Moyers this week, I knew this was the guy who could answer a pressing question. So I emailed him:
George W. Bush recently told Ken Auletta of the New Yorker, "No President has ever done more for human rights than I have."

Is that a fact?

His reply:
I think Bush forgot about Lincoln and the Emancipation Proclamation.
