The Latest Fact Checks curated by Media Bias Fact Check 07/09/2022

Each day Media Bias Fact Check selects and publishes fact checks from around the world. We only utilize fact-checkers that are either a signatory of the International Fact-Checking Network (IFCN) or have been verified as credible by MBFC. Further, we review each fact check for accuracy before publishing. We fact-check the fact-checkers and let you know their bias. When appropriate, we explain the rating and/or offer our own rating if we disagree with the fact-checker. (D. Van Zandt)

FALSE Claim via Social Media and Gateway Pundit: Images show Highland Park shooter had antifa connection

Politifact rating: False (None of the images supposedly pulled from Crimo’s social media feeds have been verified and the evidence supporting their authenticity is thin. Screenshots of Crimo’s supposed Instagram account omitted information, such as a username, that could have been used to verify it.)

No evidence ties Highland Park shooter to antifa

BLATANT
LIE
