In this blog, I think objective form of pronoun "me" is wrong.

As always, I give you ONLY the facts. You decide for yourself whether he is right or me.

Can I rephrase the sentence as follows?

You're right, "me" is incorrect there. Your revision using "I am" is correct.

"me" is the the objective case of "I". You use it when you're the object: "He gave it to me."


As we're talking about "I" and "me" I'll point out an error people frequently make, including native speakers: It's "me" even if you're not alone in the sentence. You'll commonly see "He gave James and I a lift" (even from native speakers) but it should be "He gave James and me a lift". The rule is simple: If you removed "James and", would you use "I" or "me"? Are you the subject (I) or the object (me)?
