In late 2004 I started The Gateway Pundit blog after the presidential election. At that time I had my twin brother Joe and my buddy Chris as regular readers. A lot has changed since then.
Today The Gateway Pundit is a leading right-of-center news website. The Gateway Pundit has 6-7 million visits (Sitemeter). It is consistently ranked as one of the top political blogs in the nation. TGP has been cited by Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, Drudge, The Blaze, Mark Levin, FOX Nation and by several international news organizations. Jim Hoft was awarded the Reed Irvine Accuracy in Media Award in 2013. Jim Hoft will receive the Breitbart Award for Excellence in Online Journalism from Americans for Prosperity Foundation in May 2016.
Not everyone appreciates our success.
Jim Hoft is active in the Tea Party and was the associate producer of Hating Breitbart. He has a devotion to growing democracy and freedom movements everywhere, from inside Iran to the darkest corridors of the U.S. Capitol. His passion is liberty. His dedication is to a free America.
