Analysis / Bias
In review, American Patriot Daily does not produce original news reporting but rather takes existing stories from other sources and adds conservative opinions. There is frequent use of highly emotional language such as this: Nancy Pelosi Committed Political Suicide With One Impeachment Announcement. This story does not contain a single hyperlink to support its claims. Another story titled One Top Trump Whistleblower Was Just Caught Red-Handed Doing the Unthinkable…Also uses loaded language that does not match the content of the story. Further, the story contains highly biased commentary such as this: “The coup attempt against President Trump is well underway. But while Democrats are working overtime to destroy the President, the mainstream media just made one mistake that will come back to bite them.”
Do we really need to explain the difference between a coup attempt and using legal channels…I hope not! If you have questions on this, let us know through our contact forms, and we will give you facts.
American Patriot Daily also promotes conspiracy theories such as the Clinton’s murdering rivals and opponents, which never seems to come true: This Murder Investigation Could Ruin Hillary Clinton. Finally, this source also promoted former President Obama as a Muslim conspiracy theory as seen here: Obama’s Muslim background and coke habit came back to haunt him. In general, this is a fake news source that routinely publishes misleading and un-sourced information to dupe gullible people into believing falsehoods.
Failed Fact Checks
- An accredited fact-checker has not fact-checked them; however, the sources they rely on frequently fail fact checks.
Overall, we rate American Patriot Daily Questionable based on extreme Right-wing bias, poor sourcing, promotion of conspiracies, propaganda, and a complete lack of transparency. (D. Van Zandt 5/22/2017) Updated (09/05/2022)
