Sure, but fact checking can be done by anyone, and agenda isn't going to make it any less true or false when you have evidence.
Nuance is fine, but there was no nuance when Trump claimed that it wasn't ruled unconstitutional. His only argument was that it would have been ruled constitutional if the appeal was never dropped, which is speculative at best.
Not sure if you're contending that he was correct, but I'll answer it anyway.
1. This was in regards to the way the NYPD was carrying out stop and frisk as per Floyd v. City of New York, not stop and frisk as ruled constitutional in Terry v. Ohio. It wasn't being applied fairly, and instead, targeted minorities disproportionately without reasonable suspicion. In other words, it was being selectively enforced on people who just happened to live in neighborhoods with higher crime rates, regardless of reasonable suspicion.
