As TGP previously reported, on Monday, June 12th 2017, The Gateway Pundit’s founder and EIC Jim Hoft along with D.C. Correspondent Lucian Wintrich and Media and Ethics Lawyer, Charles Glasser, counsel to Gateway Pundit, met before the Senate Press Gallery Executive Committee.
We argued the implications and the necessity for alternative voices in the room – voices that aren’t financed by special interests – but voices that are a specific and genuine reflection of the voices of America and every day Americans.
We later received a call from a liberal reporter that we did not win our appeal. Their decision was leaked to the far left Daily Beast.
We have yet to receive a call or email from the committee. (As of 12 AM Tuesday we have still not been notified of the committee’s decision.)
The Committee also surprised TGP with two objections on Monday which were not previously listed in their initial refusal letter, one of which included pointing to a single word in Jim Hoft’s Twitter bio: the word ‘activist’.
Even more egregious, after leading us to believe this was an objective and open ruling, they leaked their decision to liberal outlets.
Below is an open letter provided by Founder and Editor-in-Chief, Jim Hoft.
As this letter clearly states, ‘This is not the last they’ll see of us’.
