FrontPage Magazine (also known as FrontPageMag.com) is an online conservative political website, edited by David Horowitz and published by the David Horowitz Freedom Center.

History[edit]

On January 1, 2007, FrontPage Magazine named Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean its 2006 "People Of The Year 2006".[1] The two United States Border Patrol agents shot drug smuggler Osvaldo Aldrete-Davila near the US–Mexico border and were convicted of "eleven of the twelve counts alleged in the indictment, including assault with a dangerous weapon, assault with serious bodily injury, discharge of a firearm during the commission of a crime of violence and wilfully violating Aldrete-Davila's Constitutional, Fourth Amendment right to be free from illegal seizure, as well as obstructing justice by intentionally defacing the crime scene, lying about the incident, and failing to report the truth."[2] They had been sentenced to 11 years and 1 day and 12 years imprisonment, respectively, and were subsequently incarcerated.[3] FrontPage Magazine considered them guilty only of "bureaucratic infractions"; "these men have lost their money, their reputations, and (perhaps soon) their freedom trying to protect our nation. For that, they deserve our thanks."[1]

In 2016, the Southern Poverty Law Center called Horowitz and FrontPage Magazine part of "the premier financier of radical anti-Muslim extremism" in recent years.[4] Robert Spencer, a FrontPage writer who was listed by the SPLC as an anti-Muslim extremist, called the report a "hit list."[5]
