PC Must Die News does not disclose ownership nor names of editors or those profiting from the website. Obvious revenue is derived through advertising.
Analysis / Bias
In review, PC Must Die News does not publish original news content, but rather takes an existing story and quotes it while offering right-leaning opinions. For example, in this story, California says independents can vote for Democrats’ 2020 primary, but not Republicans’, which is taken almost word for word from the Los Angeles Times. Basically, the website rewords news stories from other sources. Some of these sources are not pro-science such as this: New Finnish Study Finds No Evidence For Man-Made Climate Change. Another category on the website is called “Instant Karma”, which generally highlights minorities committing crimes while using racial slurs such as this: Thug Trying To Mug Woman Gets Beaten Senseless, Begs Her to Call the Cops. This website also supports Trump: Pair of Anit-Trumpers try to Fight Trump Supporter and get Whooped on Video and denigrates liberals Trevor Noah asks Hillary Clinton how she killed Jeffrey Epstein.
In general, this is a source that is questionable due to fake news, extreme bias, and poor sourcing.
Overall, we rate PC Must Die News a Questionable Source based on Extreme Right Bias, Poor Sourcing, Propaganda, Conspiracy, Fake News, and Lack of Transparency. (D. Van Zandt 11/22/2019) Updated (10/12/2020)
