The FBI’s MLK Day post honoring Martin Luther King Jr. was corrected with a Community Note, pointing out the bureau’s surveillance of King, attempts to discredit him, and alleged manipulation tactics.

The note also referenced the FBI’s involvement in King’s death and linked to articles detailing questionable circumstances surrounding his assassination.

“This #MLKDay, the #FBI honors one of the most prominent leaders of the Civil Rights movement and reaffirms its commitment to Dr. King’s legacy of fairness and equal justice for all,” wrote the FBI on X. (Trending: Trump Breaks Records In Iowa Caucus)

Community Notes, X’s fact-checking service, wrote, “The FBI engaged in surveillance of King, attempted to discredit him, and used manipulation tactics to influence him to stop organizing. King’s family believe the FBI was responsible for his death.”

This correction is not the first; in the past, the FBI’s denial of surveilling parents at school board meetings was disputed with a Community Note referencing former FBI agent Steve Friend’s testimony.

In July, FBI Director Christopher Wray said, “The FBI is not and never has been in the business of policing or investigating speech by parents at school board meetings.”

Community Notes wrote, “The FBI’s statement is misleading. On May 18, 2023, former FBI agent Steve Friend testified before the House Judiciary Committee that he and others were directed to surveil and document parents attending school board meetings.”
