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)

|MISLEADING||Claim via Social Media: Sugar causes ADHD in babies, dementia and Alzheimer’s in adults, cancer.
Health Feedback rating: Misleading (While excess sugar consumption can lead to adverse health outcomes, sugar alone does not cause medical conditions like ADHD or cancer. Other genetic and environmental factors also play a role.)
|FALSE||Claim by Alex Mooney: Jim Justice “supports banning sporting rifles for law-abiding citizens.”
PolitiFact rating: False (Mooney’s statement cherry picks and exaggerates a comment Justice made in a 2022 briefing. In the briefing, Justice expressed doubts that 18-year-olds should be able to buy assault weapons, suggesting the minimum age should be raised to 21. Justice signed a bill expanding concealed-carry rights on the state’s college campuses, and his campaign website says he is against “more gun control and confiscation.”)
|Claim via Social Media: John Kerry has said that the ‘global elite’ must meet the United Nations’ Agenda 2030 by depopulating the world
Check Your Fact rating: False (He did not say that.)
|FALSE||(International: United Kingdom): The head of the World Economic Forum, Klaus Schwab, has urged world leaders to grant him full governmental control over their nations.
Full Fact rating: False (There is no evidence Mr Schwab has said this.)
