Analysis / Bias
The National Patriot publishes common right-wing conspiracies such as claiming The Obamassiah – More Demon Than Deity. At the same time, many stories are simply fake news, such as Trouble Brewing in the Democratic Party, which is rated False by Snopes.
Articles in 2021 use highly loaded emotional wording that always favors the right and denigrates the left, such as this Afghanistan and The Deliberate Destruction of America. This article, like the others we reviewed, contains minimal hyperlinked sourcing to credible media outlets. In general, news reporting is low factual and presented with extreme right bias.
Failed Fact Checks
- Third-Party fact-checkers have never checked this website.
Overall, we rate The National Patriot Questionable based on extreme right bias/propaganda, conspiracy theories, and poor sourcing of information. (M. Huitsing 8/8/2017) Updated (8/31/2021)
