About Us

Founded in 2010 by Tucker Carlson, a 20-year veteran journalist, and Neil Patel, former chief policy advisor to Vice President Cheney, The Daily Caller is one of America’s largest and fastest-growing news publications. Our team of experienced, full-time reporters and editors works around the clock to deliver award-winning original reporting, in-depth investigations, entertainment, thought-provoking commentary and up-to-the-second breaking news.

From exposing shocking mismanagement of Republican National Committee funds to exclusively revealing the FBI’s interview with Hillary Clinton, The Daily Caller’s reporting has been thorough and tough on members of both political parties. In 2016, The Daily Caller emerged as a news leader in covering the U.S. presidential election, providing around-the-clock, on-the-ground coverage of the primary process, the debates, and the general election. The Daily Caller was also included as a full-time member of the traveling press pool for the Democratic nominee.

The Daily Caller’s reporters are credentialed members of the U.S. Senate and House press galleries. We also provide comprehensive coverage of the executive branch, with a dedicated White House correspondent and membership in the White House Correspondents’ Association. Additionally, The Daily Caller is a member of the White House in-town press pool, responsible for dispatching reports to the global press at White House events on a monthly basis.

The Daily Caller’s reporting is distributed worldwide to over 20 million unique readers each month through our highly-visited homepage, wildly popular newsletters and apps, countless citations from the world’s other top news sites, and our vast social media following. In addition to being a Facebook managed partner, our reporting is distributed through official partnerships with Yahoo and MSN.

The Daily Caller is a for-profit, independent news outlet. We generate revenue for our mission through advertising. Decisions about what to investigate, as well as our conclusions, are guided only by our journalists.

While our job is to ascertain the truth, we will occasionally make mistakes. When we do, we commit to hastily correcting our errors so that our readers can get the real story. If you spot an error, please alert us via our tip line. The prominence of our correction will be commensurate with the gravity of the error. Typos will be corrected without fanfare, minor corrections will be noted at the bottom of the article and major factual corrections will be noted at the top.

Stay informed by liking us on Facebook and following us on Twitter. Mobile apps for The Daily Caller are available for download on the iPhoneiPad and Android platforms. These user-friendly apps provide readers with the full range of The Daily Caller’s website offerings on the go.
