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 Donald Trump (R): A Florida elections bill “guts everything” “instead of getting tough, and doing what the people want (same day voting, Voter ID, proof of Citizenship, paper ballots, hand count, etc.).”
Politifact rating: False (Florida Republican lawmakers passed a 96-page bill that makes multiple changes to state election law. The bill adds rules for third-party groups that collect voter registration applications and stiff fines if they break the rules.)

|Claim by Dr. Peter McCullough and X22 Report: The spike protein induced by COVID-19 vaccines is toxic and causes diseases and deaths; nattokinase can counter these effects
Health Feedback rating: Inaccurate (COVID-19 vaccines haven’t been shown to be toxic. “Detox” practices are unnecessary and their alleged effectiveness isn’t supported by scientific evidence.)
Peter McCullough makes multiple false, misleading, and unsupported claims about COVID-19 vaccine safety and efficacy in viral podcast
|FALSE||Claim via Social media: Oklahoma City bombing stopped Hillary Clinton indictment in Whitewater case.
USA Today rating: False (Clinton was not set to be indicted in the Whitewater scandal, nor were any documents related to the case destroyed in the Oklahoma City bombing, according to experts, FBI records and news reports.)
Fact check: No link between Whitewater scandal and Oklahoma bombing
|Claim via Social Media: U.S. President Joe Biden is considering placing voting restrictions on Twitter Blue subscribers ahead of the 2024 presidential elections.

|FALSE||Claim via Social Media: Dr. Anthony Fauci “admits that mask mandates were a broad spectrum failure.”
Politifact rating: False (Fauci did not say that mask mandates as part of the COVID-19 response were a failure. Mask mandates were not discussed in the article in which he was quoted. Fauci said masks have life-saving potential.)
Fauci did not admit in New York Times interview that mask mandates were a failure
|FALSE||(International: Australia): Claim by Senator Ralph Babet: COVID-19 vaccines are more deadly than the COVID virus.
Australian Associated Press rating: False (The research underpinning the claim is flawed. Death rates for vaccinated people are no higher than for unvaccinated people.)
