Analysis / Bias

In review, PatriotRetort is a an opinion blog with a right wing bias in reporting. Headlines and articles frequently contain loaded language that favors the right, such as this: Operation Smear Kavanaugh is blowing up. When it comes to proper sourcing of information, there really isn’t any unless you consider tweets and Youtube links as proper sourcing. We don’t. With that said, this is an opinion blog that also disclaims that some of their posts are satire. Essentially, all stories favor the right and denigrate the left.

This source has never been fact checked by an IFCN fact checker.

Overall, we rate PatriotRetort Right biased based on story selection and opinions that align with the right and Mixed for factual reporting due to lack of sourcing. (D. Van Zandt 9/21/2018)
