They may utilize strong loaded words (wording that attempts to influence an audience by using appeal to emotion or stereotypes), publish misleading reports and omit reporting of information that may damage conservative causes. Some sources in this category may be untrustworthy. See all Right Bias sources.

The Deep State, the liberal media, social-justice Hollywood, leftist colleges – we’re under attack from every possible direction. That’s why we’re fighting back. In the Information Age, the best weapon is better information. That’s why Patriot News Alerts was launched. To better inform the Americans who care about their country.

Analysis / Bias
In review, Patriot News Alerts is a news and opinion blog that reports news with a right-wing bias in both story selection and wording. Here are some sample headlines that utilize strong loaded words that favor the right: Study suggests Obamacare has killed people, Press Secretary Sarah Sanders obliterates CNN for attacks on military personnel, and Sarah Huckabee Sanders torches Senate Democrats over failure to protect American citizens. In general, Patriot News Alerts summarizes and editorializes news stories to favor the right. When it comes to sourcing they utilize a variety of mainstream media sources, as well as factually mixed right-leaning sources such as the Daily Caller and Daily Wire.
