The Montana Daily Gazette was founded by Pastor Jordan Hall of Sidney, Montana, and ownership was transferred to a group of Montana investors in October of 2020. All of our owners – all Montanans – are highly committed to providing up-to-date, fair news coverage from a conservative and Christian worldview and come from a range of backgrounds including government, religion, publishing, entrepreneurialism, and philanthropy.
Hall’s organization, The Gideon Knox Group, remains the publisher for Montana Daily Gazette. Its editor, who manages the day-to-day content of the newspaper, is James White of Kalispell.
Jordan Hall has been credentialed with the Montana Newspaper Association, writing as a freelance reporter for the Round-Up Newspaper, based in Richland County, Montana. Hall’s has been quoted or cited in the New York Times, Newsweek, the Washington Post, the UK Daily Mail, the London Telegraph, the Today Show, Maxim, as well as in Christian publications like the Christian Post, Baptist News Global, and the Christian Research Network.
The Montana Daily Gazette was founded after negative press coverage in the Sidney Herald characterized a successful and peaceful town hall meeting addressing the Sanctuary Movement as “though a militia were forming.” Incensed at their biased coverage, which included an assertion from the editor that “no one is trying to take your guns away” while expressing a pro-choice point-of-view, Hall believed that it was time to use his publishing experience to give a voice to alternative media in the Big Sky State. And so, he founded the Montana Daily Gazette to give traditional values a voice and to commandeer the online news market away from mainstream media which, more times than not, advocates for progressive policies and political candidates.
The Montana Daily Gazette promises to shoot straight, get facts right, and always tell the truth, even when it is uncomfortable to do so. Facts, citations, and primary sources are always linked for the reader’s further research.
