  • NOT REAL NEWS: A look at what didnít happen this week

    A roundup of some of the most popular, but completely untrue, headlines of the week. None of these stories are legit, even though they were shared widely on social media. The Associated Press checked these out; here are the real facts:

    NOT REAL: Texas Church Shooter Was Antifa Member Who Vowed To Start Civil War

    THE FACTS: Texas investigators have said the man who killed more than two dozen people at a rural Texas church Sunday didnít harbor racial or religious motives. A viral story from a conspiracy theorist site alleged Devin Patrick Kelley was connected to an anti-fascist movement or was trying to start a civil war. Texas Department of Public Safety Regional Director Freeman Martin said earlier this week the mass shooting stemmed from a domestic situation.


    NOT REAL: New Jerseyís First Muslim Mayor Vows ĎTo Glorify Allah In Every Decisioní

    THE FACTS: The city of Hoboken elected city councilman and civil rights lawyer Ravi Bhalla mayor on Tuesday. Bhalla is a Sikh, not a Muslim. Stories shared by various websites also falsely quote Bhalla as praising Allah during his victory speech and claim he has an agenda of implementing classes in local schools. Prior to his election, Bhalla was the target of anonymously distributed flyers that falsely labeled him a terrorist. He called the flyers unfortunate and said they didnít reflect what Hoboken was about.'t-happen-this-week
