Luiz Romero

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

I’ve written about misleading pro-Russia propaganda disguised as fact-checks, a European variation of the Great Replacement conspiracy theory, misleading images of nuclear catastrophes in Ukraine, and the death of an anti-vaccine conspiracy theorist in Germany.

Previously, I worked at Quartz, covering breaking news and writing for newsletters and news apps. Before that, I worked at magazines in Brazil, where I used to live, and in Italy, where I live now. I'm fluent in English, Portuguese, and Italian, and I can read Spanish and French.

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.
