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 Mehmet Oz (R): “David McCormick paid for attacks on Donald Trump.”
PolitiFact rating: False (McCormick gave money to Republican Jeb Bush in the 2016 presidential campaign, but that doesn’t amount to “paying for attacks” on Trump, who won the GOP nomination.)
|Claim via Social media: The Russian attack on a Mariupol maternity hospital was staged.
USA Today rating: False (it was real)
|Claim via Social Media: “Congress Just Gave Itself A 21% Raise As Americans Can’t Afford Gas.”
FactCheck.org rating: Mostly False (Pay raise for staffer not members of congress.)
|Claim by MeidasTouch: Marjorie Taylor Greene Refused to Clap for Volodymyr Zelensky.
Newsweek rating: False (Deceptive editing. She did stand and clap.)
|TRUE||Real or Not? Hillary Clinton thanked “the Russian Academy” for the “Lifetime Achievement Award” upon learning the Russian government sanctioned her.
Snopes.com rating: Correct Attribution
|FALSE||(International: Australia): There were more than 1,200 vaccine-related deaths in the first 90 days of the Pfizer rollout.
Australian Associated Press rating: False (The claim that the deaths were caused by the vaccine misrepresents what the published data on adverse events actually means.)
