USA Today conducted a fact check on a reporter’s remarks outside of a venue where Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) and former Vice President Joe Biden were holding a campaign event. The news outlet also fact checked a social media post that shared Nicole Garcia’s report for Fox News.
“Claim: Biden and Harris had a rally in Arizona and no one came,” USA Today said in its report:

The event described in the posts wasn’t a rally. According to local Fox 10’s NEWS NOW reporter Nicole Garcia, Biden and vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris were meeting with local tribal leaders at the Heard Museum in Phoenix, which features American Indian art.
Garcia noted that there was not much “fanfare”
