The Daily Wire is proud to announce that former Breitbart News Big Journalism editor John Nolte has joined our staff as an editor-at-large. Nolte's history of tearing apart the biases of the leftist media are well known, and his willingness to wade into controversial issues armed with the truth has made him a trusted voice for hundreds of thousands of Americans; his expertise with regard to Hollywood has also made him one of conservatism's foremost cultural commentators.
After 20-plus years working in the private sector, doing everything from unplugging toilets to milking cows to bill collection, Nolte struggled as a writer and director in the independent film world of Hollywood for 5 years before Andrew Breitbart hired him in 2008 to be the very first editor-in-chief of what would eventually grow into Breitbart News. Nolte, who now lives in a small North Carolina town, spent nearly 8 years at Breitbart News battling and exposing the Hollywood and media Left.
"I'm ecstatic to be working with John again," Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro said. "I can't think of anyone I'd rather have on my team in the political wars -- he's a fierce advocate for his position, and that's something I respect and treasure even when we disagree. John's a fantastic writer and an honest commentator, two skill sets in short supply."
Daily Wire Managing Editor Jeremy Boreing stated, "No one holds the media’s feet to the fire like John. We have had the privilege of publishing guest pieces from John throughout the election. We're thrilled that he has decided to join us in an official capacity."
John will be bringing his scathing critique of the media, insight into the culture and defense of the little guy to the Daily Wire every day, and we’re honored to welcome him to the team.
