Funded by / Ownership

The DC Patriot does not disclose ownership on the website; however, the website is owned by Matt Couch through America First Media. A Patreon page states, “My name is Matt Couch, and I’m the Founder of America First Media & The DC Patriot.” Revenue is derived through advertising, donations, and a shop that sells conservative-themed merchandise.

Analysis / Bias

In review, The DC Patriot provides a link to Matt Couch’s podcast and publishes summarized news stories with additional conservative commentary. All stories favor the right and utilize loaded emotional wording such as this SHOCKER: Amazon Offers to Help Biden with COVID Vaccinations, and this ON DAY ONE BIDEN BEGINS HIS MISSION OF DESTROYING TRUMP’S LEGACY AND AMERICA’S FUTURE. The first story is sourced from ABC News, while the second is not sourced at all. The DC Patriot sometimes relies on unreliable sources such as Trending Politics and OANN. Editorially, all stories favor the right and, in particular former President Donald Trump.

During 2020, The DC Patriot frequently promoted anti-mask propaganda as well as election fraud misinformation.
