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)

|MISLEADING||Claim by the Epoch Times: The more doses on average you have in a region within the United States, the bigger increase in mortality that region has had in 2022 when compared to 2021”
Health Feedback rating: Misleading (The claim is based on a comparison of the mortality rate with the level of vaccine coverage in different areas. However, this analysis doesn’t tell us whether the people who died were vaccinated. Therefore, this type of analysis alone doesn’t provide reliable information about whether vaccination causes increased mortality; a correlation isn’t sufficient to demonstrate a causal relationship.)
|Claim via Social Media: “‘The View’ settles with the Rittenhouses for $22 million and a formal apology.”
Politifact rating: False (Originated as satire and shared by the gullible.)
|Claim via Social Media: The Biden administration is proposing cuts to Medicare Advantage.
WFAA rating: False (the Biden administration isn’t proposing Medicare Advantage cuts.)
|Claim by Elise Stefanik (R): New York City Mayor Eric Adams proposes to “ban chocolate milk.”
PolitiFact rating: Mostly True (Adams has proposed banning chocolate milk during his career, and he suggested in a 2022 press conference that he would consider pursuing it in the future. He has written in a letter to lawmakers that he is not making such a determination now.)
