Luiz Romero

I'm a journalist. I’m a fact-checker at PolitiFact, verifying content on Facebook, Instagram, and TikTok; a reporter with stories published by CNN, Wired, and Al Jazeera; and a volunteer at Bellingcat, doing OSINT verification for the Russia-Ukraine map.

For PolitiFact, I’ve written about misleading images of nuclear catastrophes in Ukrainea European variation of the Great Replacement conspiracy theory, the death of an anti-vaccine conspiracy theorist in Germany, and about Ruben, the influencer cat from Exeter.

I studied journalism at Faculdade Cásper Líbero in São Paulo and international relations at the Central European University in Budapest. I’ve taken courses from Bellingcat, Investigative Reporters and Editors, DataCamp, and the Center for Investigative Journalism.
