BLATANT
LIE

Tucker Carlson’s ‘Patriot Purge’ film on Jan. 6 is full of falsehoods, conspiracy theories

FACT CHECK: Did Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Say These Quotes About Redefining ‘Natural Food’?

FALSE Claim via Viral Image: Bergen County in New Jersey gave more votes to the Democratic gubernatorial candidate after all the ballots were counted.

Politifact rating: False (The percentage of votes each gubernatorial candidate had changed even after it looked like 100% of the ballots were counted. But that figure only reflected ballots cast at the polls, not mail-in ballots, provisional ballots, or early voting ballots.)

No, Bergen County didn’t find more votes for Phil Murphy after all the ballots were counted

BLATANT

FALSE Claim by Aaron Rodgers: “This idea that it’s the pandemic of the unvaccinated, it’s just a total lie.”

PolitiFact rating: False (Scientific evidence and studies show that unvaccinated people are more than five times more likely than vaccinated people to catch COVID-19, and over 10 times more likely to be hospitalized or die from COVID-19.)

No lie: COVID-19 is largely spread by unvaccinated people.

FALSE (International: Australia): Data from Israel shows COVID-19 vaccines don’t reduce hospitalisations.

Australian Associated Press rating: False (The data shows that those who have been vaccinated are significantly less likely to be hospitalised after contracting COVID-19 than the unvaccinated.)

Suggestion vaccinated COVID-19 patients dominate Israel hospitals is ‘fake news’
