AZ Republic: Gateway Pundit wins $175K settlement over election press pass

The Arizona Republic has reported that the controversial news website Gateway Pundit “will receive a $175,000 settlement from Maricopa County after a federal appeals court ruled that officials erred in barring a writer for the website from attending on-site election news conferences last year.”

Gregg Leslie, director of ASU College of Law’s First Amendment Clinic, had testified as an expert witness in the hearing at the U.S. District Court in this case that the reporter for the Gateway Pundit was acting as a journalist and deserved to be given credentials during November’s vote count.
