FALSE Claim via Social Media: the 2.8 millions who died of COVID in 2020 can be due to the flu and pneumonia.

Health Feedback rating: Incorrect (Laboratory-confirmed cases of COVID-19 aren’t caused by the flu. COVID-19 is caused by the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, the flu is caused by the influenza virus. Diagnostic tests are able to distinguish one virus from the other.)

COVID-19 and influenza are different diseases caused by different viruses

BLATANT
LIE
Claim by Donald Trump (R): “So the Pennsylvania Supreme Court just ruled, in effect, that the 2020 presidential election was rigged.”

Politifact rating: Pants on Fire (A Nov. 1 ruling from the Pennsylvania Supreme Court has no effect on the outcome of previous elections, including 2020. The order states that absentee or mail-in ballots received in “undated” and/or “incorrectly dated” outer envelopes will not be counted for the Nov. 8 election.)

Trump’s claim that a PA Supreme Court ruling proves the 2020 results were rigged is Pants on Fire!

FALSE Claim via Social Media: A law was passed in March 2022 permanently ending Daylight Saving Time in the United States.

Snopes rating: False (Such a bill was indeed passed by the U.S. Senate but stalled in the House of Representatives, so as of this writing, Daylight Saving Time is still on the books for now.)

No, Congress Didn’t Permanently End Daylight Saving Time in Early 2022

BLATANT
LIE
Claim via Social Media: “Joe Biden announced to the world tonight that they are going to cheat by dumping ballots.”

Politifact rating: Pants on Fire (Joe Biden urged Americans to be patient as all legitimate ballots are counted in races in the midterm elections. He didn’t say Democrats will dump ballots.)

No, Biden didn’t say Democrats would dump ballots

TRUE Claim via Social media and right-leaning news outlets: George Soros Is Midterms’ Biggest Donor.

Newsweek rating: True (Campaign finance data shows George Soros was the biggest single individual donor in the 2022 elections. He donated more than $128 million and has contributed exclusively to Democrats.)

Fact Check: Is George Soros U.S. Midterms’ Biggest Donor?

FALSE (International: Philippines): Press Secretary Trixie Cruz-Angeles has exposed the forgers behind the fake document on the appointment of an immigration commissioner.

VERA Files rating: False

VERA FILES FACT CHECK: Malacañang has NOT named people behind fake appointment document g the phrase ‘Let’s Go Brandon’?
