— The New York Times says it has a team of reporters poised to post updates throughout the debate, pulling from "a spreadsheet of 76 pre-written fact-checking reports."
— The Washington Post's Fact Checker will be on the case and already has separate files on its past fact-checking of the president and "the GOP candidates" (including Romney, obviously).
— NPR, which will be streaming and broadcasting starting at 9 p.m. ET, will follow the 90-minute debate with a discussion that includes reports from correspondents John Ydstie, Julie Rovner and David Welna that analyze some of the candidates' statements.
Also, NPR social media strategist Andy Carvin will be on Twitter (@acarvin) all evening. If you hear something you think Obama or Romney got wrong, tweet him your proof.
Finally, we'll be live blogging during the debate and will look to flag claims that might bear some scrutiny. Then, we'll come back after the debate with a fresh post that rounds up the highlights — and lowlights? — from all those fact checkers.
