Media Bias Fact Check selects and publishes fact checks from around the world.

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 James Thorp: “Americans are dropping dead” from COVID-19 vaccines; vaccines impair fertility, pregnancy, infant survival

Health Feedback rating: Inaccurate (The claim that COVID-19 vaccines have caused hundreds of thousands of deaths in the U.S. is based on flawed calculations using VAERS death reports, which on their own are insufficient to establish causality. Contrary to Thorp’s claims, available evidence indicates that COVID-19 vaccines don’t harm fertility or increase the risk of pregnancy complications.

Claim via Social media: Mel Gibson’s social media post warns ‘the end’ is coming for Israel

USA Today rating: False (Fake. Mel Gibson is not even on Social Media.)

Anti-Israel post purportedly from Mel Gibson is not real; he’s not on social media | Fact check

TRUE Claim via Social Media: Generative AI is allowed in political ads.

KHOU rating: True (There’s currently no prohibition on generative AI in political ads.)

Yes, AI is allowed in political ads. But that may change soon

Claim via Social media from the People’s Voice: Pfizer admitted employees received a ‘special batch’ of COVID-19 vaccine.

USA Today rating: False (Pfizer ordered a batch of vaccines for its Australian employees to avoid draining the government’s supply, but Australia’s health department said the shots were the same as those designated for the general public. The claim originated on a website known for publishing misinformation.)

People’s Voice Rating

FALSE Claim via Social Media: On Nov. 7, 2023, Pennsylvania voting machines were “flipping votes,” which is evidence of “election fraud.”

Politifact rating: False (A clerical error by a voting machine company caused votes in two judicial races to appear switched on printed ballot summaries that were produced after some Northampton County, Pennsylvania, voters cast ballots. Local officials said the machines recorded voters’ choices accurately and all votes were tabulated properly.)

Pennsylvania voting machine error did not reveal ‘election fraud’

FALSE (International: Israel): Drone footage shows an Israeli bomb killing children in eastern Gaza.

Australian Associated Press rating: False (The video shows an attack on militants in Khartoum, Sudan. However, many children have been killed in Gaza, but this video does not show it.)

‘Israeli bombing’ of children is actually from Sudan conflict
