So the story is this: a new website will ship your ashes to a Republican congressman if being denied health insurance kills you.

Here’s the story.

For this one, please do two things:

  • Learn what you can about Raw Story. Are they a hoax site? A news site? Do they have an agenda? Do they have a history of inaccuracy?
  • Look for alternate coverage, and either provide a better source for this story (if true) or a fact-check (if not true).
