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 via Social Media: Says a U.S. Air Force-insignia plane evacuating people from Afghanistan is fake.
PolitiFact rating: False
|FALSE||Claim by The Federalist: “There’s no science behind masks on kids”.
Health Feedback rating: Inaccurate (numerous studies show that masks limit transmission of Covid-19)
|Claim by Donald Trump (R): Under the Trump administration, the U.S. “didn’t need the Middle East” oil, and now “we’re going back to them asking them for help.”
FactCheck.org rating: Mostly False (During Trump’s final year in office we exported more oil than imported; however we still imported 7 million+ barrels per day from the Middle East. Market forces in 2021 have caused slightly more imports from the Middle East with no change in policy.)
|FALSE||Claim by childrenshealthdefense.org: Study: Fully Vaccinated Healthcare Workers Carry 251 Times Viral Load, Pose Threat to Unvaccinated Patients, Co-Workers
Lead Stories rating: False (The delta variant makes the viral load higher, not the vaccine people have received.)
|Claim by Ben Swann – Truth in Media: “A new report from ’60 Minutes’ includes an interview with a scientist from the Pentagon who says that there is now a COVID microchip.”
FactCheck.org rating: False (crackpot microchip conspiracies return.)

Lead Stories rating: False (no such charge)
