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 via Social Media: Has Fox News fired Laura Ingraham?
Newsweek rating: False (The claims about Ingraham appear to have been prompted by rumors of scheduling changes at the station, which the network has not confirmed.)
|TRUE||Claim by Tim Scott (R): “For African American families in particular, the homeownership rate remains relatively unchanged since 1968, the year the Fair Housing Act was signed into law.”
PolitiFact rating: True (In 1970, two years after the Fair Housing Act was signed into law, the census found that 42% of Black households owned their own homes. In 2022, that number was 44%.)
Sen. Tim Scott said Black homeownership has been static since 1968 housing law. He’s right.

WGRZ rating: False (Homeless veterans weren’t kicked out of NY hotels to house migrants.)
Veterans not kicked out of New York Hotels for migrants
