Is it just me, or did the identity of Factcheck.com change overnight? I checked it when Cheney mentioned the site during the debate last night, and it was just a “portal” banner ad type site. Cheney actually intended to refer to factcheck.org, the Annenberg Center Political Fact Checking site (which is now giving a Microsoft .NET “Server error in ‘/’ Application” error—too bad they didn’t use Apache!). But when visiting factcheck.com today, it redirects to georgesoros.com, a message from billionaire and anti-Bush activist George Soros. Is it possible that he took over the site that quickly, or was the domain hijacked last night, or is there some other, more sinister explanation?

    Nothing sinister, just a site admin giving Cheney the finger: http://news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&cid=694&u=/ap/20041006/ap_on_el_pr/debate_web_sites_1&printer=1
