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 Ron DeSantis (R): A central bank digital currency would allow the Federal Reserve to control Americans’ spending.
PolitiFact rating: Conspiracy Theory (Even if federal leaders decided they wanted to block Americans’ everyday purchases this way — and there’s no indication they do — the laws currently on the books would not allow it. And Americans’ preferences for privacy would make it difficult to change the laws to make it possible.)
Ron DeSantis’ baseless theory that the government wants to control people’s purchases
|Claim via Social Media: purports CNBC ‘Mad Money’ host Jim Cramer allegedly tweeted, ‘I’m very confident Trump is not getting indicted’
