Truth or Fiction is a website founded and managed by Rich Buhler, president of Branches Communication, in 1999. The website covers a wide variety of topics and sorts fact from fiction.
Truth or Fiction prides itself on getting to the bottom of rumors, offers, scams and requests for help. It also identifies virus warnings, inspirational stories and hoaxes that affect Internet users. It uses terms such as "truth", "fiction" and "reported to be truth" to help visitors quickly get answers to their questions.
Truth or Fiction was founded because of Buhler's interest in urban legends and rumors. It started as a way for Internet users to find the accuracy of forwarded emails and quickly grew into a website that checks out all kinds of information.
