Reasoning: Right, Propaganda, Conspiracy
Patriboticsis a blog written by Louise Mensch, a former conservative British MP and co-founder of the Heat Street website. According to their about page, the purpose of the Patribotics blog is to provide “investigative journalism and analysis of the Russian hack on America’s election and related topics. Pro-America, pro-democracy, pro-NATO, pro-Russia, anti-Putin.” While Patribotics does produce factual content, they also promote numerous unproven conspiracies. The blog has been called controversial and cites unnamed sources in the intelligence community. Mensch has stated that she prefers the freedom of self-publishing, which has her own blog affords; she told The Guardian, “I didn’t want to be subject to an editing process. Editors would ask: who are your sources? And I can’t tell them.” Overall, this source does produce some quality investigative journalism, but many unproven and un-sourced claims render this blog questionable. (D. Van Zandt 7/30/2017)
