The Latest Fact Checks curated by Media Bias Fact Check 11/10/2021

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. When appropriate we explain the rating and/or offer our own rating if we disagree with the fact-checker. (D. Van Zandt)

Fact Checker bias rating Codes: Red = Right-Leaning, Green = Least Biased, Blue = Left-Leaning, Black = Unrated by MBFC

Tucker Carlson’s ‘Patriot Purge’ film on Jan. 6 is full of falsehoods, conspiracy theories

FACT CHECK: Did Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Say These Quotes About Redefining ‘Natural Food’?

FALSE Claim via Viral Image: Bergen County in New Jersey gave more votes to the Democratic gubernatorial candidate after all the ballots were counted.

Politifact rating: False (The percentage of votes each gubernatorial candidate had changed even after it looked like 100% of the ballots were counted. But that figure only reflected ballots cast at the polls, not mail-in ballots, provisional ballots, or early voting ballots.)

No, Bergen County didn’t find more votes for Phil Murphy after all the ballots were counted

Fact Check: This Video By Dr. Richard Fleming Does NOT Prove Pfizer’s COVID-19 Vaccine ‘Attacks Human Blood, Creating Clots’ rating

FALSE Claim by Aaron Rodgers: “This idea that it’s the pandemic of the unvaccinated, it’s just a total lie.”

PolitiFact rating: False (Scientific evidence and studies show that unvaccinated people are more than five times more likely than vaccinated people to catch COVID-19, and over 10 times more likely to be hospitalized or die from COVID-19.)

No lie: COVID-19 is largely spread by unvaccinated people.

FALSE (International: Australia): Data from Israel shows COVID-19 vaccines don’t reduce hospitalisations.

Australian Associated Press rating: False (The data shows that those who have been vaccinated are significantly less likely to be hospitalised after contracting COVID-19 than the unvaccinated.)

Suggestion vaccinated COVID-19 patients dominate Israel hospitals is ‘fake news’
