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)

MOSTLY
TRUE
Claim by Karine Jean-Pierre: Sen. Kyrsten Sinema “voted with the president 93% of the time.”

Politifact rating: Mostly True (Yes, she did, but experts said votes don’t capture the whole story. Sinema objected to several of Biden’s legislative proposals and forced compromises before the legislation came to a vote. And Sinema voted with Biden less often than the majority of Democrats.)

Sinema voted with Biden most of the time, but less often than the majority of Democrats

BLATANT
LIE
Claim by thegatewaypundit.com: Brazil Military Kills “Red Command” Cartel Leaders, Prepares Take Over.

Lead Stories rating: False (Did Not Happen. Another day, another blatant lie from the GWP.)

Fact Check: NO Evidence That Brazil’s Military Killed Red Command Cartel Leaders Or ‘Prepares Take Over’ As Of December 14, 2022

Gateway Pundit Rating

MISLEADING Claim by Joe Biden (D): “Exports are up, which means we’re making things here in America and shipping the products overseas rather than shipping the jobs overseas.”

FactCheck.org rating: Misleading (Under President Joe Biden, U.S. exports of goods and services have increased, but U.S. imports have grown even faster. )

Biden’s Claims About an Increase in Exports Ignore Larger Growth in Imports

Joe Biden Rating

BLATANT
LIE
Claim by Dr. Peter McCullough: Messenger RNA is transferring from the vaccinated to the unvaccinated.

AFP Fact Check rating: False (Medical crackpottery. Vaccines cannot shed.)

Covid vaccinated do not ‘shed’ mRNA to unvaccinated

FALSE Claim via Social Media: The Human Meat Project is using donated bodies and organs to create “alternative meat consumption options.”

Politifact rating: False (The site is “purely a conceptual art project and will not be acted out in real life,” according to the group’s website.)

Human bodies aren’t being processed into meat products. The Human Meat Project is ‘conceptual art’

FALSE (International: Russia): Russian President Vladimir Putin increased the size of Russia’s armed forces to 5 million.

Rappler rating: False (Army size is 2.04 million.)

Putin increased army size to 2.04 million, not 5 million
