MTV News has re-released a news report produced in the months following the 9/11 attacks, saying that the clip disproves Donald Trump‘s claims that thousands of Muslims in New Jersey celebrated the attacks.

MTV was thrust into the controversy when fact-checkers tracked the rumor down to a post from conservative blogger Debbie Schlussel. “As I’ve also noted, even leftist MTV News (yes, that MTV) broadcast news reports showing thousands of Palestinian Muslims outside Paterson’s town hall, cheering the 9/11 attacks against America (and starting a riot using cement garbage cans and metal poles, which they used to attack police),” she wrote in 2013.
