The Latest Fact Checks curated by Media Bias Fact Check 11/04/2023 (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 by Vivek Ramaswamy (R): “Gen Z is divided 50-50 on whether they support Hamas or Israel.”

PolitiFact rating: Mostly False (One Harvard-Harris poll found that among American 18-to-24 year olds — part of Generation Z — 48% said they sided with Hamas after it attacked Israel on Oct. 7. But that was based on a small subsample of 199 people. Three other recent polls found lower Hamas support among Generation Z.)

Vivek Ramaswamy says 50% of Gen Z Americans support Hamas. We say that’s Mostly False

FALSE Claim by Steve Kirsch: Vaccine killed 3.5X more Americans than COVID virus.

Health Feedback rating: Inaccurate (Excess mortality data indicates that there were roughly 1.2 million excess deaths in the U.S. between the beginning of 2020 to the end of August 2023. The claim that the vaccine killed 3.5 times more people than COVID-19 isn’t compatible with the data, given that the CDC already reported roughly 1.1 million COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. to date, which are counted among the excess deaths.)

Claim that COVID-19 vaccines killed 3.5 times more Americans than COVID-19 is based on a highly flawed online survey; inconsistent with excess mortality data

Steve Kirsch Rating

Supposed Elon Musk promise that South Africans don’t have to work isn’t authentic

FALSE (International: Russia): President Vladimir Putin announced Russia will provide “help to Palestine” in the current war between Israel and Hamas. rating: False

Online Video Misrepresents Putin Speech Commemorating WWII Victory
