The Latest Fact Checks curated by Media Bias Fact Check 11/01/2023

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 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 Scott Walker (R): “Wisconsin has historically…and I think largely continues to be, a blue state.”

Politifact rating: Mostly False (In reality, Wisconsin isn’t really blue or red. Wisconsin currently has a Republican supermajority in its Legislature, a Democratic governor and a mix of representatives in Congress.)

While Wisconsin did vote for Biden in the last election, it’s far from a blue state

Claim via Social Media: Matthew Perry died after heat triggered his COVID-19 vaccine.

USA Today rating: False (Complete nonsense)

TRUE Claim via Social Media: An image shared on X in late October 2023 authentically depicted an American family and their guns.

Snopes rating: True

Is This a Real Photo of an American Family Displaying Their Guns?

FALSE Claim via Social Media: The lifespan of a wind tower generator lasts just three to four years.

PolitiFact rating: False (A study by energy industry experts showed that an average wind turbine generator lasts around 25 to 75 years.)

Wind turbine generators typically don’t fail after three to four years. That’s just hot air.

Claim by Donald Trump (R): Did Joe Biden say he would fight Donald Trump?

Newsweek rating: Mostly True (Yes, in 2016. While Trump’s claim is technically a misquote, Biden said he would have fought him “if we were in high school.”)

FALSE (International: Palestine): A video shows Hamas militants executing Palestinian civilians.

Australian Associated Press rating: False (The footage is from a 2013 massacre in Syria, not the current Middle East conflict.)

Video of 2013 Syrian massacre posted as Gaza conflict
