Analysis / Bias

In review, Pacific Pundit exhibits extreme right wing bias through wording and story selection that always favors the far right. For example, this headline: NFL THUGS WHO DISRESPECTED THE NATIONAL ANTHEM IN WEEK 7 uses a derogatory racial term to describe protesters of inequality and police violence. Pacific Pundit also does not source to credible media, for example they use Infowars: “CRAZY LEFTISTS PLAN ‘SCREAM HELPLESSLY AT THE SKY’ EVENT” and Blacksphere: “MAJOR DNC SHAKEUP – MEDIA SILENT.” 

The website also frequently promotes right wing propaganda and conspiracy theories such as this: ILHAN OMAR DOESN’T DENY SHE SUPPORTS AL QAEDA AND COMMUNISM. A quote from the article demonstrates extreme loaded language that is not supported by evidence “Trump wanted to exposed these communists and terrorist sympathizers for who they are and it looks like he finally did it. They’ve been well hidden and protected by the media up until today. Now, they are basically the face of the communist Democrat party.”

A factual search reveals a few failed failed fact checks.

Overall, we rate the Pacific Pundit a Questionable source based on extreme right wing bias, promotion of propaganda/conspiracy, use of poor sources, a complete lack of transparency and failed fact checks. (M. Huitsing 10/23/2017) Updated (7/16/2019)
