TGP’s founder Jim Hoft was on the War Room with Steve Bannon yesterday to discuss the TGP’s courtroom win over Maricopa County last week.
The subject matter of the discussion yesterday at Bannon’s War Room was TGP’s recent win over Maricopa County in the courtroom.
TGP reported on this case last week.
The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors approved a historic settlement with The Gateway Pundit on Wednesday. Maricopa County officials signed off on a major First Amendment lawsuit and settlement with TGP Communications, LLC, the parent company of The Gateway Pundit news website.
Yvonne Wingett Sanchez from the Washington Post broke the news publicly on Tuesday afternoon.
Facts Behind This Historic Case:
Maricopa County officials sought to prevent TGP reporter Jordan Conradson from attending briefings following the 2020 midterm elections. Jordan is widely regarded as the most fearless and honest reporter in the state of Arizona. Maricopa County claimed The Gateway Pundit’s coverage was not reputable after TGP and Conradson had forced a county official from office through our previous exclusive reporting.
County officials were terrified of Jordan and TGP and attempted to block our outlet from public press gatherings.
The Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit Court overturned the initial ruling by Obama-appointed Judge John Tuchi.
The Court of Appeals concluded the county’s refusal to grant a press pass to TGP and Conradson was based on viewpoints expressed in his writings, and said it violated the First Amendment.
How Big Is This Win?
This is a major win for The Gateway Pundit and independent media in America today. It sets precedent for independent journalists of merit to gain access to government press briefings. We cannot adequately express the importance of this decision.
It should be noted that despite the consistent attacks on our website, The Gateway Pundit has on average 2.7 million daily page visits a day with nearly 2 million unique visitors. Our audience size is exponentially larger than the local outlets attending the Maricopa press briefings.
