Bias: Extreme Right, Propaganda, Conspiracy, Fake News
Notes: Pacific Pundit, like most questionable news sources does not provide an about page to describe their mission or ownership. 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.” Overall, Pacific Pundit is a questionable source based on extreme right wing bias, promotion of propaganda/conspiracy and use of sources that publish fake news.
