The Latest Fact Checks curated by Media Bias Fact Check 10/12/2022

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 Codes: Red = Fact Check on a Right Claim, Blue = Fact Check on a Left Claim, Black = Not Political/Conspiracy/Pseudoscience/Other

Fact Checker bias rating Codes: Red = Right-Leaning, Green = Least Biased, Blue = Left-Leaning, Black = Unrated by MBFC

With Midterms coming up in November, we will be publishing as many politician facts checks as we can find.

FALSE Claim by Liz Wheeler (R): The Great Reset advocates replacing capitalism with an economic system that is “kind of socialism, kind of communism” but “mostly just fascism.”

Politifact rating: False (The World Economic Forum has never advocated for the creation of a totalitarian world government or the replacement of capitalism with another economic system. There is no evidence to support this theory, and it has been thoroughly debunked.)

The Great Reset is not a conspiracy to force changes in economic systems

FALSE Claim by Donald Trump (R): “George H.W. Bush took millions and millions of documents to a former bowling alley pieced together with what was then an old and broken Chinese restaurant. … And there was no security.”

FALSE Claim By Joe Rogan: “The question is, ‘how much of an impact do we have on [climate]?’ That has not totally been quantified”; climate change is happening anyway, “The ice age happened without us…It’s probably this constant cycle”.

Climate Feedback Rating: Flawed Reasoning (Scientists have quantified human influence on the climate system and found it to be responsible for the entirety of modern warming. Earth’s climate has been stable for 11,000 years before humans started releasing large amounts of greenhouse gasses and scientists have determined that natural factors are insufficient to explain modern warming.)

Scientists have found that modern climate change is caused entirely by human activity, contrary to recent speculation by Joe Rogan
