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

|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.)
