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)

|Claim by David Perdue (R): A consent decree approved by Gov. Brian Kemp “invalidated all voter ID law” and “allowed fraudulent ballots to be accepted” in the 2020 race.
PolitiFact rating: Pants on Fire (The agreement said nothing about voter ID law and we found no evidence that it opened the door to the counting of fraudulent ballots. Gov. Brian Kemp was not a signatory to that settlement agreement.)
|Claim by Keven McCarthy (R): “We are watching what’s happening in the country … parents that are being attacked by the attorney general saying that somehow they are terrorists because they want to go to school board meetings.”
The Washington Post rating: Four Pinocchios (Attorney General never said that)
|TRUE||Claim by Melissa Agard (D): Cannabis reform “is supported by the majority of the residents of our state, including a majority of Republicans.”
Politifact rating: True (A February 2022 poll of registered Wisconsin voters by the Marquette University Law School showed 61% in favor of legalization of marijuana and 31% opposed. The same poll found 51% of Republicans supported legalization.)
|Claim by Sen. Martin Heinrich (D): No Republicans voted for the Infrastructure bill.
The Dispatch rating: False (32 Republicans voted for it.)
|FALSE||Claim by Social media post: “sooooo Red Cross won’t use vaxxed blood ??”
FactCheck.org rating: False (They do)
|FALSE||(International: Australia): A “physics professor” says a mind-control weapon was used successfully in the Gulf War to force Iraqi troops to surrender.
Australian Associated Press rating: False (There is no evidence such technology was used, or that it exists. In addition, the video’s caption incorrectly identifies the speaker as a leading physics professor.)
