Prntly: America's Top News Site (known simply as Prntly) is an American online media website that supported politically conservative and libertarian causes.[1] It was founded in 2015 by Alexander M Portelli, a libertarian activist and former mayoral candidate in Albany, New York. Prntly is headquartered in Aurora, Colorado.

Creation[edit]

Prntly started off as a Printing Website in New Hampshire for libertarian candidates statewide. A blog section devoted to business and politics was developed by Portelli as Donald Trump announced his candidacy. Prntly gained fame in the 2016 election for being the only company that accurately predicted a Donald Trump victory with the correct margins and correct states.[citation needed]

Reception[edit]

The website saw massive growth in readership in the first year of operation, jumping from an anonymous print site with a blog to being one of the top 2500 sites in the United States, with an average monthly visitor rate of two million people.[2] The Washington Post reported that then candidate Donald Trump read the website for his news.[1]

Disappearance and Relaunch[edit]

The Prntly after the election Prntly was add revenue was severely cut from search engines. The page was throttled by the search engines and the website lost readership. The website became defunct in 2017. [3] On January 9th, 2019 Prntly was relaunched back online to "combat the mainstream media for the 2020 United States Presidential Election." [4]
