Analysis / Bias
In review, Patriotic Viral News does not publish original content but rather summarizes existing news stories from other sources. They change headlines to be more sensationalized such as this Far Left Teachers Create List of Parents Who Disagree with Radical Progressive Agenda, whereas the original article from the far-right Blaze is less sensational VA teachers help create BLACKLIST of parents fighting critical race theory. In general, on this site, all stories favor the right and denigrate the left with very poor sourcing utilized and zero transparency and hence not credible.
Failed Fact Checks
- This source has never been fact-checked.
Overall, we rate Patriotic Viral News a far-right and questionable blog that promotes conservative policy. We also rate them low for factual reporting due to poor sourcing and a complete lack of transparency. (D. Van Zandt 3/1/2017) Updated (3/28/2021)
