The Latest Fact Checks curated by Media Bias Fact Check 6/20/2021

Each day Media Bias Fact Check selects and publishes fact checks from around the world. We only utilize fact-checkers that are either a signatory of the International Fact-Checking Network (IFCN) or have been verified as credible by MBFC. Further, we review each fact check for accuracy before publishing. (D. Van Zandt)

Claim Codes: Red = Fact Check on a Right Claim, Blue = Fact Check on a Left Claim, Black = Not Political/Conspiracy/Pseudoscience/Other

TRUE Claim by Glenn Grothman (R): “We have a record 9.3 million job openings in the U.S.”

PolitiFact rating: True (The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics in early June 2021 released a report showing the U.S. had 9.3 million of openings.)

Grothman right on claim that 9.3 million jobs are open in US

FALSE Claim by Tucker Carlson: “FBI operatives were organizing the attack on the Capitol on Jan. 6.” rating: False (No Evidence)

Conservative Outlets Advance Unfounded Theory About Capitol Attack

PolitiFact rating: False

No sign spike proteins from COVID-19 vaccines, including Novavax, are dangerous

FALSE Claim by Viral Quote: Claims Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Democrats would “join the enemy” in the event of an invasion of America.

Check Your Fact rating: False

FACT CHECK: Did Sarah Huckabee Sanders Say If America Is Invaded, ‘Democrats Will Join The Enemy’?

FALSE Claim by War Room Pandemic: It’s not a corona pandemic but it’s a planned, staged PCR test pandemic

Health Feedback rating: Inaccurate

PCR tests are reliable to detect and monitor COVID-19 infections, which are real and had caused millions of deaths worldwide

FALSE (International: United Kingdom): Claim by Great Reject: Three British Airways pilots have died of the Covid-19 vaccine in the last seven days.

Full Fact rating: False (Four British Airways pilots have recently died but the company says the deaths are not “linked”. The MHRA says it hasn’t been told about any deaths of pilots after vaccination, and has not had discussions with any airline about preventing vaccinated pilots from flying.)

British Airways is not in ‘crisis talks’ with the government about vaccinated pilots – Full Fact

Great Reject Rating
