In a direct attack on our First Amendment and the bedrock principles of a free press, a Washington, D.C. jury has just convicted journalist Stephen Horn on four misdemeanor charges related to his coverage of the events of January 6.

This is Stephen’s “raw” documentary footage, which he got covertly by wearing a camera in his helmet:

His footage has been used by many outlets on the right and left. This is Stephen’s completed documentary:

The D.C. jury only deliberated for about an hour on Monday before they handed down their guilty verdict, finding Horn culpable of the following offenses:

• Entering or Remaining in a Restricted Area

• Disorderly or Disruptive Conduct in a Restricted Area

• Disorderly Conduct in a Capitol Building

• Parading, Demonstrating, or Picketing in the Capitol Building

The bottom line is this: a documentary filmmaker has now been branded a “rioter” by the very system he was exposing. It’s become increasingly apparent that you can’t get a fair trial in the murky depths of the political swamp, unless, of course, you’re part of the swamp.

Here’s what Stephen had to say about his sentencing:

His sentencing is set for January. No doubt, they will try to throw the book at him. Stephen has set up a GiveSendGo to help with his legal fees:

Dear friends,

Since reporting on January 6th as an independent journalist, I have incurred significant costs both to defend myself legally, as well as to continue to research and publish investigatory research relating to the fateful events at the Capitol that day.

Although my sole intention when entering Capitol Grounds that day was to accurately document and publish what I observed (like many of the other journalists), the DOJ has refused to follow their policies for “Members of the News Media” (28 CFR § 50.10), and is prosecuting me for four misdemeanors, including “Parading, Demonstrating, or Picketing in a Capitol Building” and “Disorderly and Disruptive Conduct in a Restricted Building.”

Bona fides

My documentary and investigative work has been cited in publications ranging from The Epoch Times to the HuffPost (though they neglected to credit me).

What ended up being the most significant moment I witnessed and documented is probably the notorious encounter between the Oath Keepers and USCP Officer Harry Dunn. What I witnessed was the Oath Keepers interposing themselves between Dunn and certain angry individuals in an attempt to de-escalate the situation. (Although I was ultimately not called to testify at any of the Oath Keeper trials in DC, I did testify in the eligibility trial of an Oath Keeper state representative in Alaska).
