Analysis / Bias

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 been credited with a Pants on Fire claim via Politifact as well as being labeled a male supremacist. In short, this is an Alt-Right website. 

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) Updated (11/8/2018)
