Correction request sent to PolitiFact, May 5, 2022

The first of two correction requests Zebra Fact Check sent to PolitiFact on this date concerned PolitiFact’s fact check of a movie trailer.

In its criticism of the “2000 Mules” trailer, PolitiFact included a subheading that falsely described both the trailer and PolitiFact’s evaluation of the trailer. PolitiFact changed the offending line not long after we sent the correction request.

As of 11:56 a.m. EDT on May 5, 2022, the correction was accomplished via stealth edit.
