Rep. Maddock Wants To Register ‘Fact Checkers’ With The State And Fine Them $1,000 Per Day If They Don’t
Michigan Republican state Rep. Matt Maddock introduced a bill that would require “fact checkers” to register with the state and would fine them $1,000 per day if they fail to do so.
Maddock, whose wife, Meshawn Maddock, is the co-chair of Michigan’s Republican Party, introduced the Fact Checker Registration Act with eight other Republicans on Tuesday. The bill defines a fact checker as anybody who publishes online or in print within the state, is paid by a fact-checking organization and is a member of the International Fact Check Network.
