Bias: Extreme Right, Propaganda, Conspiracy, Fake News
Notes: The Viral Patriot is a news and opinion website with an extreme right wing bias in reporting. All articles utilize sensational headlines that favor the right and denigrate the left. The Viral Patriot typically uses other questionable sources for news, such as the Conservative Tribune, with has a terrible track record with fact checkers. The Viral Patriot website also has a store that sells anti-left and pro-right merchandise. Further, like most discredited websites, the Viral Patriot does not have an about page. Overall, this is an extreme right questionable source that promotes propaganda and uses sources that have published fake news. (D. Van Zandt 9/8/2017)
