NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – It’s that time again – Fact Check Friday. It’s when, with the help of factcheck.org, a nonpartisan non-profit part of the Annenberg Public Policy Center of the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, we see if our leaders are telling us the truth.
Today’s focus is a claim made by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg while on the “Late Show with David Letterman” on the subject of over-eating.
“For the first time in the history of the world, more people will die from over-eating than under-eating this year,” Bloomberg said.
Was the mayor telling truth or serving up a whopper?
