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 Marjorie Taylor Greene (R): “Ukraine was the No. 1 donor to Hillary Clinton when she was running for president.”
PolitiFact rating: False (Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign did not report receiving any donations from the Ukrainian government or Ukrainian nationals. Those donations would have been illegal.)
|FALSE||Claim via Social Media: Queen Elizabeth II is taking ivermectin to treat COVID-19.
Snopes.com rating: False (The claim was made on an Australian news program, but was quickly corrected. Nevertheless, it was spread around the internet as truth.)
|Claim via Social Media: Greenpeace USA had a banner on Trump International Hotel in Las Vegas making fun of Donald Trump’s genitalia.
PolitiFact rating: Pants on Fire (Greenpeace USA tweeted that the video is fake and unrelated to the organization.)
|FALSE||Claim via Social Media: Trump Passed Bill Raising Taxes In 2021 And Every Two Years Until 2027
Lead Stories rating: False (Nonpartisan tax experts disagree.)
|FALSE||Claim by Rick Scott (R): “The latest with the Durham report is that the Clinton campaign … actually spied on the president of the United States.”
PolitiFact rating: False (There is also no evidence the data was obtained illegally, nor did the filing suggest that it was. The filing also doesn’t say the Clinton campaign directed the effort, as Scott claimed.)
|(International: Russia): Claim by Vladimir Putin: “The United States directly controls the National Agency on Corruption Prevention, the National Anti-Corruption Bureau, the Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor’s Office and the High Anti-Corruption Court.”
The Washington Post rating: False
