The Latest Fact Checks curated by Media Bias Fact Check 07/26/2022

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 Herschel Walker (R): Democrats, including President Joe Biden, “stopped domestic drilling” for oil, driving gasoline prices higher.

PolitiFact rating: False (Biden never tried to bar all domestic drilling. He did try to pause future leasing on federal lands, but this was blocked by a court. Since President Joe Biden took office, oil production has risen both on federal lands and on U.S. lands overall. No president has the authority to stop drilling on private lands. And presidents have little control over gasoline prices, which are determined by the global market.)

Did Biden stop domestic oil drilling, as Herschel Walker said? Hardly
