The article titled "Fact-check: These shoes (Tex Hazel) weren’t found in South Sudan - 211CHECK" provides a detailed analysis of a claim made by Suncity TV, a local blog in South Sudan, that shoes with a design of two pairs of cow hooves on each were found in a village in South Sudan and were used by a cattle thief to hide his footprints. The article concludes that the claim is false and the shoes were actually invented and used by Crazy Tex Hazel, a cattle thief in the US in 1920, and are currently kept in the Northeastern Nevada Museum.
The article provides evidence to support its conclusion, including results from a Google Reverse Image Search and references to other websites that have previously used the same pictures. The article also highlights potential risks associated with spreading false information and encourages readers to fact-check claims before sharing them.
However, there are some potential biases and missing points of consideration in the article. For example, while it is clear that the claim made by Suncity TV is false, the article does not explore why such claims might be made or what impact they could have on perceptions of South Sudan. Additionally, while the article notes that the shoes were invented by Crazy Tex Hazel, it does not provide any information about his background or motivations for creating such footwear.
Furthermore, while the article presents evidence to support its conclusion, it does not explore counterarguments or alternative explanations for why someone might believe that such shoes were found in South Sudan. This could leave readers with unanswered questions or doubts about the accuracy of the article's conclusions.
Overall, while the article provides valuable information about a specific claim made by Suncity TV, it could benefit from more exploration of potential biases and alternative explanations for why such claims might be made. Additionally, providing more context about Crazy Tex Hazel's background could help readers better understand why he created such unusual footwear.
