True Pundit is a political conspiracy website with a far right wing bias. Like most low credibility sources they do not list a mission statement or about page.

Funded by / Ownership

Again, True Pundit does not list ownership or financial information, however, Thomas Paine (real name Michael D. Moore) appears as the name on many articles. This is a pseudonym for a supposed former FBI agent who is now against the FBI and very pro-Trump. It appears this is his website that is funded through advertising and donations via Pay Pal and Patreon.

Analysis / Bias

True Pundit occasionally publishes a legitimate story, however most are right wing conspiracies. The majority of articles from True Pundit have anonymous authors and all of them have a strong right wing bias with generally loaded headlines such as: The FBI Just Kicked the Door in of Anti-Trump San Juan Mayor’s Office in Puerto Rico; Federal Raid. True Pundit continues to beat the Seth Rich Murder conspiracy to death, no pun intended and several other conspiracies which have been debunked. True Pundit also uses Questionable sources such as Your News Wire, which has one of the worst fact checking records in history.

A factual search reveals a poor fact check record.

Overall, we rate True Pundit not only Questionable, but also a far right conspiracy site that rarely publishes credible news. This is a far right conspiracy source that cannot be trusted for accurate news reporting. (10/4/2016) Update (D. Van Zandt 10/16/2018)
