Full Fact's twelve days of Christmas 2011
- The Twelfth Day: December: Did group of Muslim women escape jail for attack because 'not used to alcohol'?

A Daily Express front page gets a little more scrutiny, and a chance to highlight the Office for National Statistics' video series.

Was Tottenham's MP justified in citing youth unemployment as part of the background to the disturbances?

- The Fourth Day:April: Is Britain borrowing enough to build a primary school in Rochdale every 20 minutes? (4 out of 5)
Full Fact's analysis of a claim Nick Clegg made to Gillian Duffy. A favourite not just because of the importance of the debt debate this year but also for the fun idea of primary schools breeding like rabbits in Rochdale!

In our first success with the PCC, the Daily Mail became the last of several papers to correct inaccurate special educational needs reporting from six months previously.

- The First Day: January: Incapacity Benefit: Can 94% of claimants work? (1 out of 5)
Welfare Reform became a major topic for us this year as Parliament debated big changes to the benefits system. This was perhaps the most far out of the inaccurate headlines we saw, many of which we later got corrected.
