The Latest Fact Checks curated by Media Bias Fact Check 7/28/2021

Each day 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. (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

FALSE Claim via Social Media: “Child support card” in Delaware “controls what mothers can and cannot buy with child support money.”

MOSTLY
