Analysis / Bias
In review, the Bearded Patriot takes news from Right-leaning sources and summarizes or republishes them. They do not produce original news content. Some of the sources they summarize/republish are The Blaze, Breitbart, and Fox news. All stories favor the right and denigrate the left such as this: Democratic Party Continues to Crumble as Major Figure Turns on Democratic Frontrunner. This story is sourced to the factually mixed Daily Wire. In general, the Bearded Patriot re-reports news from other sources that are not always factual, but not overtly questionable either.
Overall, we rate the Bearded Patriot Questionable, based on the promotion of right-wing propaganda, poor sourcing, and specifically a lack of transparency. (D. Van Zandt 1/24/2020)
