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: The U.S. “takes 87% of all the prescription medications in the world.”
Politifact rating: False (There is no reason to believe that the U.S., which accounts for about 4% of the world’s population, consumes the vast majority of all prescription medications.)
|Claim by rumble.com: A video presentation proves that the spike protein in COVID-19 mRNA vaccines replaces the sperm in men.
Lead Stories rating: False (No evidence. Further, credible scientists and experts are unlikely to use the Rumble platform.)
|Claim via social media: Merrick Garland stripped Trump of right to run in 2024.
USA Today rating: False (Garland does not have the authority to do this)
|Claim by Al Franken (D): “Americans will get $1.1 B in rebates from health insurance companies this year cuz of a provision I wrote in the ACA.”
Politifact rating: Mostly True (That amount, while an estimate, is likely very close to the total payout that a provision of the Affordable Care Act will require insurers to rebate consumers this year. The rule kicks in when insurers spend too little on actual medical care.)
|Claim by thepeoplesvoice: WEF Says It’s Time To Legalize Sex and Marriage With Animals To Promote Inclusion
Lead Stories rating: False (Another made-up story by The People’s Voice and shared by the gullible.)
|FALSE||(International: Australia): Claim by Financial Analyst David Martin: Every scientific publication on coronaviruses from 1990 to 2018 found vaccines do not work against the virus type.
Australian Associated Press rating: False (Various research showed vaccines could work against coronaviruses before the COVID-19 vaccines proved their effectiveness.)
