Jim Hoft is a movement conservative who founded The Gateway Pundit, a top right-wing news source known for consistent factual reporting and its refusal to cave into political correctness and left-leaning talking points, unlike many neocon-leaning sites such as Fox News and the National Review. As such, he has been the subject of ridicule and smears by liberal organizations like Media Matters, Salon, and Crooks and Liars.
In 2015, Hoft received the Breitbart Award for Excellence by the Americans for Prosperity Foundation.
Following the Orlando terrorist attack, Hoft came out as being gay and called for homosexuals to "come back home to the Republican Party".
