The Latest Fact Checks curated by Media Bias Fact Check 7/25/2021

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

BLATANT
LIE
Claim via Social Media: “Income taxes are voluntary.”

PolitiFact rating: Pants on Fire (Try not paying themand get back to me)

Paying taxes is not voluntary

FALSE Claim by Steve Deace, Ron Paul, Charlie Kirk: Post-vaccination deaths reported to VAERS are caused by the vaccine

Health Feedback rating: Misleading (VAERS reports alone don’t demonstrate causal relationships between a vaccine and adverse events, as these events can simply be incidental illnesses and deaths unrelated to vaccination.)

VAERS reports may initiate investigations into potential associations between a vaccine and adverse events, but on their own cannot prove causality

Ron Paul Report Rating,  Turning Point USA Rating

MOSTLY
FALSE
Claim by Joe Biden (D): “We’ve inoculated over 160 million people, 85% of people over the age of 50.”

FactCheck.org rating: Mostly False (72% are fully vaccinated)

BLATANT
LIE
Claim via Social Media: Washington police can’t chase kidnappers after reforms

Fact Check: New Washington State Reforms Would NOT Prevent Police From Chasing Violent Suspects

NO
EVIDENCE
Claim by Rand Paul (R): On the origins of the coronavirus, “all the evidence is pointing that it came from the lab.”

FactCheck.org rating: No Evidence (while it may have come from the lab, there isn’t actual evidence that it did)

Fauci and Paul, Round 2

FALSE (International: United Kingdom): Claim by Boris Johnson – Vaccines have severed the link between Covid-19 infections and serious disease or death.

Full Fact rating: Incorrect (Vaccinated people are much less likely to catch Covid-19, or get seriously ill or die from it, but the link between infections and deaths has not been removed completely.)
