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. We fact-check the fact-checkers and let you know their bias. When appropriate we explain the rating and/or offer our own rating if we disagree with the fact-checker. (D. Van Zandt)

|FALSE||Claim by Watts Up With That: “Facebook is spamming all climate articles by misleading readers about” the accuracy of climate models.”
Politifact rating: False (The Watts Up With That blog post cites a 2016 chart to suggest that climate change models regularly exaggerate rising temperatures due to greenhouse gases. Researchers have found many technical flaws in that 2016 chart, some tied to its focus on a slice of the atmosphere far from the Earth’s surface where temperatures are more difficult to measure.)
|FALSE||Claim by redvoicemedia.com: Attorney Thomas Renz Reveals Mind Blowing COVID Jab Injury Numbers From DoD Whistleblowers.
Lead Stories rating: False (Incorrect Data)
|FALSE||Claim via Social Media: “Pennsylvania had 2.6 million mail in votes that the court of appeals of PA held to be unconstitutional. Umm that alone means Biden lost PA.”
PolitiFact rating: False (A Pennsylvania court ruled Jan. 28, 2022, that Act 77 was unconstitutional and that establishing no-excuse mail voting would require a constitutional amendment. The ruling, which is being appealed, doesn’t change the fact that Biden won Pennsylvania.)
|Claim via Email: Norton renewed your annual membership and said to contact the company for a refund.
Snopes.com rating: Scam ( I have personally received this. It looks official, but it is not.)
|Claim via Social Media: Says Chuck Norris recorded a video in response to the Biden administration saying, “Our great country and freedom are under attack.”
Politifact rating: False (video is from 2012 against Obama.)
|FALSE||(International: Russia): Claim by Russian Embassy in U.S.: “FACT: It is the #USA that encouraged radical nationalist coup in #Kiev as a result of which the population of Crimea was threatened with extermination and voted for reunion with Russia.”
POLYGRAPH.info rating: False (No evidence.)
