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 by Ron DeSantis (R): About 50 migrants flown to Martha’s Vineyard in September were “deported … the next day.”
FactCheck.org rating: False (Most of them found housing in other parts of the state.)
|Claim by David Icke: 5G at 60 GHz “stops the human body and blood absorbing oxygen”; this is what doctors are describing [in COVID-19 cases]
Health Feedback rating: Incorrect (The electromagnetic frequencies used in 5G don’t deprive the body of oxygen. On the contrary, it is oxygen that absorbs the energy from electromagnetic waves, causing these waves to progressively lose energy with distance. COVID-19 is a respiratory infectious disease caused by the virus SARS-CoV-2, not 5G technology.)
|FALSE||Claim via Social media: Global polar bear population is increasing.
USA Today rating: False (Experts say the rising tally of polar bears reflects an increased ability to track bears – not an actual increase in the population. The graph is based on various estimates of the global population that include unscientific estimates, extrapolation and insufficient data sets, according to scientists.)
|Claim via Social Media: “You can get vaccinated by sleeping with somebody who is already jabbed” with an mRNA vaccine. “It’s called shedding.”
Politifact rating: False (This is not possible for mRNA COVID-19 vaccines. mRNA vaccines instruct cells to make a protein that will trigger an immune response in the body.)
|Claim via Social Media: A “previously censored video” shows “ANTIFA members” dressing up as supporters of Donald Trump in Washington, D.C. on January 6, 2021.
Lead Stories rating: False (Actors and not censored)
|FALSE||(International: Ukraine): Video show “NATO equipment arriving in Europe” to support Ukraine war effort.
FactCheck.org rating: False (A U.S. Army combat team recently completed its European deployment as part of Operation Atlantic Resolve, a series of military exercises in support of NATO. The brigade has returned to Fort Hood, Texas, and its equipment will follow.)
