PRESIDIO COUNTY, TX — Rod Ponton, a county lawyer in Presidio County, Texas, was unable to turn off the cat filter during a Zoom hearing on Tuesday in Texas’ 394th Judicial District Court. This resulted in a viral video that has swept across social media.
However, Snopes fact-checkers were quick to point out, “The video clearly shows Mr. Ponton is, in fact, a cat,” and determined his statement was false. Facebook also re-affirmed its commitment to curb disinformation across its platform–vowing to tag any posts declaring Mr. Ponton as “not a cat” as false information.
