Facts are subject to interpretation.

Example: politician A accuses politician B of voting for higher taxes.

1. Which bill is he talking about?
2. Which version of a specific bill is he talking about?
3. Which vote on the specific bill is he talking about?
4. Is he talking about an actual vote on a bill, or some procedural nonsense (i.e. voting to call for a vote)?

I can't see an automated script handling this kind of nuance very well.

People old enough to remember when AOL was in BIG BIG TROUBLE in the 90's because they couldn't figure out how to install the FBI's carnivore mail server plug-in already knew the government was already actively scanning all of our telecommunications.

Everyone ignores the fact that the FBI has been doing this for the last 20 years, but makes a big commotion about the NSA doing it. Yawn.
