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 Mark Pocan (D): End of eviction moratorium means “millions of Americans” could lose their housing in the middle of a pandemic.
Politifact rating: True
|FALSE||Claim via Brand New Tube video: Germany suspended COVID-19 vaccinations
Health Feedback rating: Inaccurate
|FALSE||Claim by Kevin McCarthy (R): Telecom and social media platforms risk breaking the law, and could see their US business suffer, if they comply with records requests from the Jan. 6 investigation committee.
PolitiFact rating: False (McCarthy did not name the law, and legal experts say they are unaware of one that would fit that description.)
|Claim by viral photo: New York Gov. Kathy Hochul unmasked in a classroom with masked children.
The Dispatch rating: Mostly True ( the photo is real, but it is unclear if Hochul’s visit was to a pre-K class or after-school program. After-school programs have separate guidance, under which vaccinated adults were not required, but were encouraged, to wear masks when with children who had to wear masks.)
|Claim by viral post: claims the COVID-19 vaccine can cause HIV to develop due to fragments of HIV being used in the vaccine.
Check Your Fact rating: False
|(International: Afghanistan): Taliban is playing with Blackhawk helicopters on the tarmac in Afghanistan
AFP Fact Check rating: False (from Libya)
