Bias: Extreme Right, Propaganda, Conspiracy
Notes: CERNO (Cernovich.com) is an alt-right blog run by Mike Cernovich. Mike Cernovich, according to his interview with the New Yorker is an “expert at using social media to drive alt-right ideas into the heart of American political discourse” and he prefers to call himself “American nationalist,” but he often uses “we” when discussing the alt-right movement” Mike Cernovich has also been mentioned by the Southern Poverty Law Center as an important figure in the Alt-Right movement.
In review, Cerno publishes articles with sensational headlines and sometimes uses videos to promote propaganda by using loaded language:“EXCLUSIVE: Man Featured In Viral Video Getting His MAGA Hat Stolen By A Snowflake Is Pursuing Legal Action”. However, occasionally Cerno quotes credible sources such as the Miami Herald, but again with sensational headlines: “Socialism Sucks: Venezuelan Female Teachers and Doctors Turn to Prostitution to Survive.” Mike Cernovich has also been credited with a Pants on Fire claim via Politifact. Overall, we rate CERNO Questionable based on extreme right wing editorial bias, promotion of propaganda and a Pants of Fire claim via a credible fact checker. (M. Huitsing 10/19/2017)
