The Latest Fact Checks curated by Media Bias Fact Check 6/23/2021

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

FALSE Claim by George P. Bush (R): “We see an uncompleted wall that was duly appropriated dollars during the Trump days to build over 700 miles. Only 150 miles were constructed.”

Politifact rating: False

Bush lowballs border wall mileage

Claim via Social Media: New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo reopened New York hours before his daughter’s wedding

USA Today rating: False

Fact check: Gov. Cuomo did not reopen New York days before his daughter’s wedding

FALSE Claim via Social Media: “Coolmath Games is being taken down cause it was run by the Mexican drug cartel?”

PolitiFact rating: False

There’s no evidence Coolmath Games is getting ‘taken down’

Claim via Social Media: Kamala Harris excluded black women from a bipartisan dinner at her residence.

Lead Stories rating: False (the dinner was for senators and there currently are zero black female senators)

Fact Check: Harris Did NOT Exclude Black Leaders From Private Dinner For No Reason

Claim by Rand Paul (R): “More children have died from suicide than from COVID”

Health Feedback rating: Missing context (It is most likely true that more died by suicide as the rates were already high before Covid. However, in 2020 suicide rates dropped 5.6%, but there is not enough data to show a connection one way or another.)

What has been the effect of the pandemic on the suicide rate of the US population?

FALSE (International: Australia): Efficacy rates of four COVID-19 vaccines are far lower than those claimed by vaccine companies.

Australian Associated Press rating: False

Muddled-up data misleads on COVID-19 vaccine efficacy
