More fake news

It turns out that those headstones in a Jewish cemetery in Brooklyn just fell over due to neglect.

Another day, another fake story to debunk, this time out of Brooklyn where there were reports earlier on Sunday of widespread of “possible vandalism” of the mainly Jewish Washington Cemetery. Note how Sen. Chuck Schumer linked to this early report as if it were fact:...
The New York Police Department says no evidence of vandalism has been found at a predominantly Jewish cemetery where more than 40 tombstones were toppled over.

The NYPD says after consultation with the management of the Washington Cemetery in Brooklyn, it was determined the 42 tombstones came down as a result of a number of factors. Those include long-term neglect or lack of maintenance, as well as environmental factors such as soil erosion.
