Praise: Scott Adams Calls for Fourth Branch of Government

Scott Adams, best known for his funny and nerdy Dilbert comic, has written an article in the Wall Street Journal calling for a Fourth branch to the United States government.  The fourth branch would be to clarify political information, similar to what the Congressional Budget Office does for legislative financial effects

The problem is that most of the political information out there is at least biased and often completely wrong.  I will be the first to admit that what I write here is biased, with a blatant progressive political slant.  While I endeavor to present accurate facts, I am certainly interpreting those facts to my favor.  Mr. Adams is calling for neutral arbiters to rate political claims.  Brilliant idea.  Now the problem is finding those who we can agree are neutral.  Just like with the CBO, this should be easy.
