This story uses a variety of media outlets, including the questionable Breitbart.

Kyle Becker has spread debunked conspiracy theories through Twitter and written articles claiming that a facial recognition technology company had identified “Antifa” members among the insurrection and that others actually control President Biden. Further, after the 2020 Presidential election, Becker News has frequently promoted former President Trump’s election fraud conspiracy theories such as this Donald Trump Relays Urgent Message About ‘Massive Fraud’ in Arizona Election in New Interview.
