Analysis / Bias
The Patriot Nation publishes summarized news and opinion stores from other sources. Many sources used are far-right biased that promote conspiracy theories and false information. For example, they use 100 Percent Fed Up, Wayne Dupree, and the Gateway Pundit, all of which have dismal track records with fact-checkers. Articles and headlines always favor the right and utilize emotional wording such as this When The Gov Left The State, The Lt. Gov Did Something Absolutely AMAZING For Patriots!
Editorially, The Patriot Nation adores former president Trump and frequently promotes him and denigrates Dmeocrats Trump Just FIRED BACK At Joe Biden, And He TOTALLY Scorched HIM! Further, they frequently denigrate Black Lives Matter such as this BLM Thugs Openly Threatening To Burn Minneapolis Down If They Don’t Get Their Way! In general, The Patriot Nation is extreme right-biased and completely lacks credibility as they are not transparent and frequently use very poor sources to support their claims.
Failed Fact Checks
- The American Psychiatric Association condones pedophilia and says normal to be sexually attracted to children. – False
- Jeff Foxworthy said that you “might be a moron” if you allow refugees to enter the United States. – False
