Analysis / Bias
In review, the Patriot Report republishes right-leaning video clips with the addition of a few lines of biased commentary. There is significant use of loaded emotional language such as this: Stacey Abrams wants illegal aliens to be able to vote because it would balance “white people”. This headline is completely misleading as Stacey Abrams is talking about school districts and not federal elections. Other articles contain blatant emotional wording such as this Nervous Nancy has to be Corrected by a Reporter After Mispronouncing Words. In general, all stories favor the right and denigrate the left with the use of misleading headlines that do not match the content of video clips. This is not a credible source on any level.
Overall, we rate Patriot Report an extreme right biased Questionable source due to misleading headlines, a complete lack of transparency, and the promotion of right-wing propaganda. (6/11/2020)
