This is a good idea: Retraction Watch.

They have been reporting on retracted scientific papers since 2010.

Have you yawned yet? The truth is not always gripping stuff. But somebody has to tell it, to keep political discourse from going entirely off the rails. That is the theory behind PolitiFact.com and FactCheck.org, the two best-known of various sites that trawl through politicians’ public statements and dig out their lies, evasions and economies with the truth (FactCheck for the borrowing percentage, PolitiFact over Mr Kerry’s revenue inflation). And as election season heats up and the fibs start flying thick and fast, they hope to be in the vanguard of keeping reality in check.
