Sen. Chuck Schumer called on Fox News not to air a second night of January 6 surveillance footage after Tucker Carlson showed video of Capitol Police officers escorting “QAnon Shaman” Jacob Chansley through the Capitol Building. Police have since released a statement saying they were doing their best to “de-escalate” the situation and prevent more rioters from entering the building — meaning they can’t refute what the video clearly shows.
Elon Musk tweeted that “Chansley got four years in prison for a non-violent, police-escorted tour,” but Instagram has appended a note leading readers to “see why fact-checkers say this is false.” Those fact-checkers are Lead Stories, PolitiFact, and AFP. Conclusion? False. “Independent fact-checkers say this information has no basis in fact.” Hello? We’ve seen the video.

The Capitol Police literally opened the Senate chamber door for him on camera!
But who are you going to believe, Instagram “fact-checkers” or your own lying eyes!?

So desperate 🤣

Well if the disinformation experts claim it’s false that means it must be. Don’t ask questions. Consume next product.

How can people have a fair trial when the media, social media, and DOJ censor all exculpatory evidence?

There not supposed to have a fair trial, that’s the whole idea.

I watched the video for myself there is nothing to fact check about it.

Do you see how they the fact checkers word things? "Entire time" They add words to the claim to make their "new statement" technically false, thereby avoiding being proven as misleading.
However if their fact check statements are not accurate to what their checking, then?

Most of these so-called fact checkers worked for CNN for years. That alone should tell you all you need to know!

Fact checkers were the misinformation spreaders all along. Go figure.

No evidence but for the videos. Thank goodness the fact-checkers reminder me not to believe my lying eyes.

Where did Musk tweet that police accompanied Chansley the entire time? That’s their basis for calling his tweet false.
