Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey are two journalists, and entrepreneurs who write and publish their own news publications to bring information to inquiring people. They were arrested in 2007 by the law breaking tyrant, and the sheriff of Maricopa County, Arizona, for publishing information on the criminal activity of the sheriff, Joe Arpaio. When their First Amendment Rights were violated, the two men filed a lawsuit against the county, and the sheriff. They won the lawsuit, after a few years of litigation, and were awarded $3.7 million dollars. Instead of keeping this money for themselves, they used it to establish the Frontera Fund which is designed to help organizations who were helping in the fight for the civil, human, and migrant rights of Arizona citizens.
Larkin and Lacey continued their writing and publishing of newspapers, and online publications. Their focus is in the area of political injustices, and other main stream, conservative issues. They started the New Times, a weekly online newspaper with Lacey as executive editor, and Larkin in advertising. The paper grew in circulation to become among the top free weekly newspaper alternatives. They ultimately embraced the ownership of seventeen newspapers that circulated from the east to the west coast.
They just recently launched their newest endeavor, The Front Page Confidential. This is an online publication that lends itself to all matters that involve, or pertain to free speech. Larkin and Lacey have earned themselves the reputation of being hard core investigative reporters of their featured writing that has a magazine style format. They provide coverage food, music, arts, film, and other interesting local events. In recent calculations, the chain of publications had reached over fifty million online readers, and more than nine million print readers. They continue their success as advocates of the First Amendment Rights of all people.
