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 by Maria Bartiromo: “The FDA is now saying that it’s OK to take ivermectin if you have COVID.”
Politifact rating: False (The FDA has not changed its guidance on ivermectin. It has not approved the drug for use in preventing or treating COVID-19.)
|Claim via Social Media: Video shows Donald Trump visiting Hawaii after August 2023 wildfires.
AFP Fact Check rating: False (He has not visited Maui. Footage is from 2019.)
|FALSE||Claim by Slay News: “the Covid injections are not effective” because the large majority of deaths involving COVID-19 occurred among vaccinated individuals
Health Feedback rating: Flawed Reasoning (The claim is based on a comparison of death numbers between vaccinated and unvaccinated populations that doesn’t consider the multiple factors that bias the analysis. Correcting these biases leads to the opposite conclusion: vaccinated people are better protected against COVID-19 death than unvaccinated individuals.)
|FALSE||(International: South Korea): South Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol was ranked third on Fortune’s list of greatest world leaders
AFP Fact Check rating: False
