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.

Analysis / Bias
In review, Southern Patriot News summarizes news stories from other sources and often changes the headline to be attention grabbing such as this: Kamala Harris is Dead in the Water. This story comes from Fox News. Story selection always favors the Right and in particular President Donald Trump such as this: Trump Scores Major Immigration Victory with Supreme Court Ruling (Associated Press). News articles also frequently denigrate Democratic politicians such as this: AOC Sells Out Former Chief of Staff (Fox News). Lastly, Southern Patriot News publishes political cartoons that denigrate the left. Further, articles often contain commentary from the author that uses highly emotional terminology such as this “Well, we have just seen a new low by Joe Biden but yet more proof he loves to use the death of his son Beau to evoke empathy and get him out of sticky situations.” And this: “How insane is the radical left right now? Well, actually, how insane is the left, period?”

Overall, we rate Southern Patriot News Right Biased based on story selection that always favors the right. We also rate them Mostly Factual in reporting, rather than High due to the use of highly emotional wording intended to sway the reader, which may be misleading in some cases. (D.
