The Latest Fact Checks curated by Media Bias Fact Check 09/23/2023 (Weekend Edition)

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 Codes: Red = Fact Check on a Right Claim, Blue = Fact Check on a Left Claim, Black = Not Political/Conspiracy/Pseudoscience/Other

Fact Checker bias rating Codes: Red = Right-Leaning, Green = Least Biased, Blue = Left-Leaning, Black = Unrated by MBFC

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.)

Attack ad exaggerates effects of school choice bill, Cooper’s opposition

Claim by COVID-19 vaccines killed 20 million people.

Fact Check: COVID-19 Vaccines Have NOT ‘Killed 20 Million People’
