Taking a look at what didn’t happen this week

NASCAR driver Tony Stewart and his crew kiss the bricks at the start/finish line after winning the Allstate 400 at the Brickyard auto race in 2007 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in Indianapolis. On Friday, The Associated Press reported on stories circulating online incorrectly asserting that NASCAR, which recently banned the Confederate flag at its events, is now forcing its drivers to engage in Muslim prayer.
A man drives into the crowd at 11th and Pike before exiting the car and brandishing an apparent firearm on June 7 in Seattle, during protests over the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. On Friday, the AP reported on stories circulating online incorrectly asserting that CNN lightened the skin of the gunman who drove a car into a Seattle protest to make him appear white. One of the photos used in the false image comparison was manipulated to make the gunman’s skin lighter, and a CNN logo was added.
