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 Francesca Hong (D): U.S. House Speaker Mike Johnson “opposes Social Security benefits.”
Politifact rating: Mostly False (Mike Johnson has not outright said he opposes Social Security benefits. The Republican Study Committee, which Johnson chaired, recommended significant cuts to the program in 2020.)
|MISLEADING||Claim by Donald Trump (R): “Fulton County, Georgia, acknowledges, in a major Consent Decree, that 3,600 individual ballots were DUPLICATED (36 Batches). THAT’S A LOT OF CRIME.”
