Bias: Extreme Right, Propaganda
Notes: The Patriot Beacon is a news and opinion website with extreme right wing bias in reporting. Every story is pro-right and anti-left. The Patriot Beacon uses strong loaded emotional words in both headlines and articles. Sourcing is often poor, leading to such sources as conspiracy website Zerohedge, and far right sources such as Judicial Watch and Young Conservatives. The Patriot Beacon has also failed a fact check. Overall, we rate the Patriot Beacon Questionable due to extreme right wing bias, a failed fact check and poor sourcing. (D. Van Zandt 8/8/2017)
