Media Bias Fact Check selects and publishes fact checks from around the world.

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 Joe Biden (D): If global warming goes above 1.5 C “we’re done; there’s no way to turn it around, according to the scientists that tell us.”
FactCheck.org rating: False (It’s increasingly likely that the planet will reach 1.5 degrees Celsius, or 2.7 degrees Fahrenheit, of warming, probably within the next two decades. But while that level of warming comes with a variety of dangerous effects, it’s not a point of no return, scientists say, and it doesn’t mean “we’re done,” as President Joe Biden has claimed.)
|FALSE||Claim by Tucker Carlson: Did Janet Yellen say “help the economy, get an abortion”?
Newsweek rating: False (The treasury secretary, speaking ahead of the dissolution of Roe V. Wade, argued that “eliminating the right of women to make decisions about when and whether to have children would have very damaging effects on the economy.” It was not an encouragement to get an abortion as a means of supporting the economy.)
|Claim via Social Media: Pressing Chest ‘Boosts Lung Health’; Alleviates ‘Cough, Wheezing, Asthma, and Dyspnea’
Lead Stories rating: False (Pseudoscience)
|FALSE||(International: New Zealand): Five-year-olds are made to question their gender as part of New Zealand Ministry of Education guidelines.
Australian Associated Press rating: False (The claim is not featured in the guidelines or policy documents. Neither are several other claims made in the post.)
