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 via Social media: “CDC Dep. Dir. Tom Shimabukuro Admits COVID Vaccines Are Causing ‘Debilitating Illnesses’”
FactCheck.org rating: False (He simply acknowledges that some people have reported debilitating conditions following vaccination to VAERS. He was not saying that those conditions were caused by COVID-19 vaccination. VAERS is not trustworthy.)
|Claim via Social Media: Black dogs are adopted less frequently and stay at shelters for longer.
VERIFYThis.com rating: False (It is a myth)
|FALSE||Claim by Mark Obenshain (R): “You know how many children are dying across Virginia because of fentanyl poisoning? A heck of a lot more than are dying at the hands of guns.”
Politifact rating: False (Guns kill more by wide margin. State records show that almost seven times more Virginia minors died from guns than fentanyl from the start of 2017 through September 2022. During that span, 355 minors died from guns and 51 from fentanyl.
|FALSE||Claim via Social media: The Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine causes COVID-19.
USA Today rating: False (mRNA vaccines do not contain the virus and therefore cannot cause it.)
|Claim via Social Media: U.S. Marines “gunned down criminal FBI agents trying to sabotage an electrical substation in Meridian, Idaho.”
Snopes rating: False (This false claim originates from a website with a satire disclaimer, though the FBI is actually investigating a series of attacks on electrical substations in several states.)
|FALSE||(International: Russia): Claim by Hindustan Times: “Shocking evidence of ISIS involvement in the Ukrainian armed forces has emerged.”
POLYGRAPH.info rating: False
