JournalistWe are the Fact Checkers of The Washington Post, the ones who give out the Pinocchios. Ask Us Anything! http://www.topiama.com/r/6477/we-are-the-fact-checkers-of-the-washington-post Hello reddit! We are the Fact Checker team of The Washington Post. We rate statements by politicians from a range to one to four Pinocchios, one for being a minor shading of facts, and four for being an outright lie. If the statement is true, you get a rare Geppetto. You can read our entire fact checking history here.

The Fact Checker team consists of we three:

Hi I’m Glenn Kessler. I edit and write for The Fact Checker at The Washington Post. I’ve been doing this for seven years, after covering just about every building in Washington during a journalism career spanning more than three decades. My parents emigrated from the Netherlands and we always had 3 or 4 cats in our house. Find me on Twitter at @GlennKesslerWP.

I’m Michelle Ye Hee Lee. I was a reporter on Washington Post Fact Checker for the past three years. This week I started a new job here on the political investigations/enterprise team, focusing on money in politics. On Fact Checker, I wrote a lot about immigration, veterans, crime and abortion. I’m responsible for getting LOLcat gifs into The Fact Checker weekly newsletter. Find me on Twitter/Facebook/Insta/Snap: @myhlee

And I’m Meg Kelly, I produce videos and sometimes report for Washington Post Fact Checker. Before joining in May, I produced videos, photos and stories for NPR politics. We only have opinions on cats at the Fact Checker — and I’m the odd-woman out, I’m allergic. Find me on Twitter: @mmkelly22.

Here’s our proof. We’ll be getting started at noon. AMA!

EDIT: Typo, it's outright "lie," not law.

EDIT 2: We're done for now! Thank you r/iAMA for allowing us to do this, and thanks to you all for your curiosity and great questions! We may return later to answer some late questions. Have a great weekend!

NonprofitI am Victor Montori, Mayo Clinic Doctor and founder of Patient Revolution, AMA! http://www.topiama.com/r/6469/i-am-victor-montori-mayo-clinic-doctor-and I'm Doctor Victor Montori. In 2016, I helped to found the Patient Revolution, a non-profit that seeks to move our healthcare system away from its current industrialized, pro-revenue model to one that is careful, kind, and patient-focused.

I've recently released the "manifesto" of the Revolution, my book "Why We Revolt: A Patient Revolution for Careful and Kind Care," which details my experiences in a series of personal essays.

Ask me about anything from healthcare to growing up in Peru!

Proof

Edit: Sorry but this is all the time I have today to answer all your questions. This was my first time doing AmA and it was a pleasure and fun to engage with you all. Feel free to connect through our website (http://patientrevolution.org) and let me know the stories that come to mind after you read Why We Revolt (http://patientrevolution.org/revolt). Together I believe we can achieve careful and kind care for all. Thank you again.

Actor / EntertainerI'm comedian, podcaster, and wonder mom, Christina P.! AMA http://www.topiama.com/r/6471/im-comedian-podcaster-and-wonder-mom-christina-p Hey Reddit, I'm here again!

After starting standup at 19, I wrote, starred, and produced my own television show TITUS from 2000-2002. After I pissed off the Network President and the show got canned I've done seven 90 minute comedy specials and I'm working on my eighth called Amerigeddon, which is touring now.

I also just finished my first feature film called Special Unit, a cop movie starring actors with real disabilities and my emotional ones. We used handicapped actors in a way that has never been done before, in a balls out comedy that is as if Mel Brooks made Lethal Weapon with retards. You can check out the movie below.

Keep the questions coming!

UPDATE 2 - As most of the team are now rolling out for the evening real-time answers will stop for now. Please keep questions coming and we'll be doing another pass in the morning so we can grab questions from all time-zones. :)

Hi Reddit!

We are a development team within Expansive Worlds, a division of Avalanche Studios (Just Cause, Mad Max etc.), based in Stockholm, Sweden.

Earlier this year we released our game theHunter: Call of the wild to PC, and more recently PS4 and Xbox One as well. Today we celebrate the release of a new wintry hunting reserve called Medved-Taiga National Park. Here's our trailer!.

We'll have the whole team (coders, artists, producers, QA, the odd marketing bod) available to answer your questions, we'll be responding via this /u/expansiveworlds account.

Looking forward to answering your questions about anything and everything, but of course our specialty is anything related to game dev, and in particular open world games. So...Ask us anything!

Proof: See our tweet

Extra info: We'll start answering questions at 15:00 CEST, 1 hour from now. At 16:00 CEST we start our Medved-Taiga launch stream (www.twitch.tv/expansiveworlds) where we'll continue to pick question from the AMA live! Then when the stream is wrapped up we'll continue for another hour or two with the AMA. As we know, time zones can be a pain, so we'll do another pass answering questions tomorrow morning so that everyone can get involved.
