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)

|Claim by Unleast Prosperity Now: “Gov. Roy Cooper is blocking a pioneering school choice bill that would give thousands of low-income parents the funds to allow their kids to get a high-quality education.”
Politifact rating: Mostly False (The ad alludes to a bill that would expand North Carolina’s Opportunity Scholarship program. The program already provides private school tuition vouchers to lower-income families. Cooper opposes the bill but hasn’t blocked it, in part because it hasn’t come to his desk.)

Lead Stories rating: False (Uncorroborated)
