Analysis / Bias
In review, Outraged Patriot does not produce original news reporting, but rather republishes or summarizes other news stories. Story selection always favors the right and uses loaded emotional wording such as this BREAKING: Bill Barr Just Broke The Democrats. Incredible. This story comes from the Questionable Breitbart which has a very poor record with fact-checkers. In fact, most news stories on this website originate from very poor sources such as the Gateway Pundit, Daily Conservative, The Daily Mail, and Big League Politics.
Although they do not offer editorials, their story selection indicates a far-right bias that frequently promotes false information regarding the Coronavirus as well as consistent praise for the Trump administration: BREAKING: Trump Was Right – COVID-19 Lie Exposed! In general, Outraged Patriot does not always publish factual news and holds an extreme right bias.
Failed Fact Checks

Overall, we rate Outraged Patriot extreme right biased and Questionable based on poor sourcing, promotion of conspiracy theories, and one-sided propaganda as well as a lack of transparency. (D. Van Zandt 8/1/2020)
