(Newser) – Even Fox News has started fact-checking Sarah Palin. Last night anchor Bret Baier responded to Palin's claim during a speech Friday that the phrase "In God We Trust" had recently moved from the face to the rim of the new dollar coin: Another case of Obama pushing a secular America, Palin implied. But as Baier joined Politico in pointing out, the coin redesign was actually commissioned in 2005—by a GOP-led government—and approved by George W Bush, TPM reports.
