History

iPatriot is a news and opinion website with a right bias in reporting. Their tagline is “News For you. By you.” This is accurate as iPatriot is a citizen journalism website where writers submit their articles and iPatriot publishes them.

The website does not name an editor.

Funded by / Ownership

According to their about page, iPatriot is owned and operated by Dorm 18 – 1 Productions, a Christian organization with a libertarian bent. Revenue was derived from a store linked to Keep and Bear; however, this is now a dead link.

Analysis / Bias

iPatriot features news articles and content published by members. In reviewing articles I found that most are opinion-based and slant heavily to the right based on the wording and political topics. For example, this article uses loaded language to convey a rejection of reparations Reparations: Democrats Scam and Insult Blacks Again. This story provides hyperlinks to sources, but one of them is the questionable and low factual Rush Limbaugh. In another story, Democrat Propaganda – All Negative All the Time does not provide a source for the opinionated claims.

Editorially, all stories favor the right and lack credibility due to a lack of editorial vetting and poor sourcing of information. In general, this is a right-wing opinion blog.
