The far-right, conspiracy theorist website The Gateway Pundit has spent the weeks following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine pumping out the Kremlin’s propaganda materials and narratives.Founded in 2004 by Jim Hoft, Gateway Pundit is a voraciously pro-Trump blog that has spread conspiracy theories about everything from the 2018 Parkland school shooting and former President Barack Obama’s birth certificate, to the Las Vegas mass shooting and the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. Most recently, the blog has served as a promotional platform for Russian propaganda in the month after the country’s invasion of Ukraine.

After all, you’re buying a product that’s fake by subscribing to an offer of News, and getting misinformation instead. Worse, in reality, you’re in fact the product, the worm, duped, scammed, tricked to become a rating’s bait to simply on-sell or catch a bigger fish.

Those facts have not stopped far-right media figures and fringe outlets from furthering Russia’s disinformation campaign, defending the invasion, and declaring Ukraine to be a “client state of the US.”
