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 Pete Buttigieg (D): Sen. Marco Rubio signed a 2021 letter that “supports waivers that would reduce visual track inspections.”
Politifact Rating: Mostly False (The letter did not explicitly advocate for fewer visual track inspections. But it encouraged the federal agency to embrace automated track inspection technology, which can detect some — but not all — track defects faster than human inspectors.)
|Claim by Stew Peters: Zelenskyy Said The U.S. Should Send Its Sons And Daughters To War Now.
Lead Stories rating: False (Clipped Quote. He was speaking hypothetically if Ukraine were to lose the war.)
|FALSE||Claim by Kat Cammack (R): The Justice Department has been “calling parents that are concerned about what their kids are being taught, they are labeling them terrorists.”
Politifact rating: False (U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland told federal agencies in 2021 to work to address criminal threats against school officials and staff. Garland’s memo did not mention the word “terrorist” and stated that “spirited debate” is protected by the Constitution.)
|MISLEADING||Claim by Children’s Health Defense: “natural immunity provides superior protection to experimental vaccines; “They lied and said Natural Immunity wasn’t better than [vaccine]-induced immunity”
Health Feedback rating: Misleading (Infection and vaccination can both generate protective immunity, but vaccination does so in a safer way because it doesn’t require exposing the person to the disease.)
|FALSE||Claim via Social Media: Fentanyl kills on skin.
Lead Stories rating: False (It absorbers too slowly to be deadly.)
|FALSE||(International: Australia): People are exposed to more radiation from being near to a 5G tower than being inside a microwave.
Australian Associated Press rating: False (The radiation inside a microwave is more than 150,000 times more powerful.)
