Thank You for Your Support! Despite Barrage of Attacks in 2017 Gateway Pundit Had Another Record Year
Guest post by Joe Hoft
Thank you so much for your support!
It’s Official. The Gateway Pundit (TGP) reached a record number of page views in 2017. We still have more than a month to go!
Thank you all for ‘Making TGP Great Again’ this year!
TGP readership hit an all-time high in 2017!
We reached more than 224 million page views in 2017. This surpassed our previous record from 2016 of 182 million page views.
We thank all our readers for all their support.
The record this year is not surprising as Americans seek the truth in a sea of #FakeNews.
The traditional mainstream media continued to lose the trust of the American consumer.
Americans know that they can count on TGP to provide the news that is not ‘fake’ or biased like the typical anti-Trump, anti-American garbage being spewed out daily from outlets like CNN, The New York Times, the Washington Post, ABC, NBC, CBS and on and on.
The Gateway Pundit continues to provide the breaking news that is ignored by the biased mainstream media. We share articles that support President Trump and the American worker.
Thank you for making us your choice for news.
On the other hand, 2017 was a very challenging year for TGP. Facebook and Twitter have often altered their platforms to prevent TGP stories from being shared. They have employed far left operatives who deem which stories are acceptable and others they kill off before they go viral.
Stories like ‘Hillary is going to win in a landslide’, ‘Hillary is not sick’ or ‘Trump colluded with Russia’ are considered accurate reports. These powerful tech firms act as gatekeepers and prevent conservative content from being shared online.
Last year we were one of the few conservative sites that supported candidate Trump – along with Breitbart, The Drudge Report, Infowars, Zero Hedge and Conservative Treehouse. We are proud of our efforts to report the truth that led to Trump’s historic win.
In 2016 Harvard and Columbia Journalism review found that The Gateway Pundit was the 4th most influential conservative news source in the 2016 election.
In 2017 we were targeted and have seen our numbers related to Facebook and Twitter decline dramatically.
In every single Facebook category our numbers are down. In page visits our numbers were skyrocketing before the election. Then in three distinct periods our numbers were cut off.
This had nothing to do with the quality of our posts as we have proof that our generic numbers are up and and continue to increase.
In all statistical categories provided to us by Facebook our current numbers are below linear projections of where we should be.
Media Matters, the group supported by George Soros is also following every move we make and doing all they can to smear The Gateway Pundit and soil our name.
We even had disgruntled personalities on the right smear and lie about us in 2017.
But we didn’t let it get us down.
We persevered with your support!
Thanks to the efforts of all of our team members our generic growth reached new heights in 2017.
Thank you so much for your support.
Thanks for Making The Gateway Pundit Great Again in 2017.
Let’s all do it again in 2018!
