The Latest Fact Checks curated by Media Bias Fact Check 10/25/2023

Media Bias Fact Check selects and publishes fact checks from around the world. We only utilize fact-checkers who 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 Americans for Prosperity: “The Inflation Reduction Act led to higher taxes.”

PolitiFact rating: Mostly False (Taxes are poised to rise under the Inflation Reduction Act, which passed in August 2022, but the increases target very large corporations and the richest Americans. But overall, independent analyses have found that ordinary Americans can expect to see little if any change in what they pay in taxes.)

Americans for Prosperity Rating

Claim via Social Media: A “leaked memo” suggests that “American Troops do not want to die for Israel” and the U.S. military in the region “does not have enough assets to support Israel.”

Lead Stories rating: False (The purported email being cited and quoted on social media is fake. A press release from the National Guard stated that the memo is false and that Gen. Daniel Hokanson, whose name is on the fake memo, did not write or send it.)

Fact Check: It’s NOT An Authentic ‘Leaked Memo’ That Says CENTCOM Thinks ‘American Troops Do Not Want To Die For Israel’

FALSE Claim via Social Media: Video shows magnetic meat for sale in U.S. grocery stores.

PolitiFact rating: False (The texture or moisture of a packaged meat or poultry product — and even the angle at which it’s held — may cause a magnet to stick to the packaging, but that doesn’t mean the meat is magnetic or contains metal.)

No metal detector needed. Magnetic meat is not for sale in the U.S.

Claim via Social Media: Did Melania Trump hold exorcism at White House?

Newsweek rating: False (she did not)

Fact Check: Did Melania Trump hold exorcism at White House?

Clip of Greta Thunberg advertising a new book on ecologically friendly war is a deepfake
