Facebook ‘Fact-Checking’ Site Claims Without Evidence That Pete Buttigieg Rode His Bike All The Way To Work Like A Big Boy

Facebook is censoring stories about Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg’s commute to work last week, using a “fact check” from a group called Lead Stories. The “fact check,” however, offers no proof to dispute the premise of the story it claims is false: that Buttigieg was caught on video unloading his bike from an SUV to shorten his commute to the White House.

The video that was taken last week, then reported on by a number of outlets, shows Buttigieg’s team of Secret Service agents and their SUVs unloading the former college town mayor’s bike for him, then trailing behind him for the rest of his journey to the White House.

“The transportation secretary biked both to and from a Cabinet meeting at the White House, according to a spokesperson at the Department of Transportation (DOT),” the Lead Stories “fact check” reads.
