What Investigative Journalism Website Front Page Confidential Has To Say About Untruthful Politicians
Back in 2007, Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey were working for the Phoenix New Times, an independent newspaper. They were both arrested one night for doing their jobs of reporting on the news. People working for other newspapers soon found out about this and soon newspapers across the United States were reporting on their arrests. This resulted in their release from jail and all charges against them being dropped. The real reason they were arrested was that they had often published negative stories about Sheriff Joe Arpaio and how he was consistently victimizing innocent people, especially people from the Hispanic Community. The sued and won a cash settlement that was nearly $4 million. The decided to use the money to set up a charitable organization called Frontera Fund. They say their fund can’t provide justice for the victims of Joe Arpaio and his ilk but on the other hand neither can the American justice system.
Since leaving the Phoenix New Times they have set up a new investigative journalism website called Front Page Confidential. They established this website in August 2017 and their goal is to expose untrustworthy politicians for what they are. They often target Joe Arpaio since he is running for one of Arizona’s US Senate seats in the upcoming 2018 midterm elections. They also often report on Arizona’s Senator John McCain. They recently had a report published on Front Page Confidential about John McCain’s many sins, such as being a warmonger and opportunist. They point out that mainstream broadcasts feature people such as Lesley Stahl of 60 Minutes basically fawning all over John McCain because he has revealed he has brain cancer. She continued the common theme that John McCain is some type of maverick even though he almost always votes strictly along Republican lines.
