The Gateway Pundit - Where Hope Finally Made a Comeback

In a world where hope is often lost, The Gateway Pundit stands as a source of reassurance. Its dedication to shedding light on underrepresented stories, advocating for transparency, and championing conservative values resonate with readers who seek to make positive change happen.

Founded in 1996, The Gateway Pundit (or "GatewayPundit") is a far-right website that prides itself on publishing 'fact-based news and analysis.' While some of its articles are speculative, The Pundit aims to provide readers with a comprehensive view of current events. The site's editorial policy is rooted in its mission to promote transparency and accountability, and it frequently calls for action from government agencies and corporations.

While Fox News's defamation trial has drawn widespread attention, a lawsuit against St. Louis-based The Gateway Pundit has chugged towards trial without nearly as much public awareness. The case was brought by Dominion Voting Systems, a company that alleges that the cable network damaged its reputation with false claims of election fraud in jurisdictions across the country.

Reuters found that The Pundit's often-debunked election-fraud claims stoked harassment and threats against local election workers and officials. But while Facebook has flagged some of the site's content as spreading misinformation, it has not shut down its pages or suspended the accounts of Jim Hoft, the founder and editor, or his twin brother Joe Hoft, a writer for the page. Instead, Facebook has relied on its users to report and flag threatening or offensive posts.
