The Ricochet.com editor in chief shares a killer Oscar prediction and an inconvenient truth about George Clooney.

Jon Gabriel doesn’t sling mud like some media pundits.

His hits are more effective, relying on facts over name calling. It’s not an accident. He grew up in a bipartisan home. The political battles were pitched, no doubt. They also ended with smiles, not bitterJon-Gabriel feelings.

Gabriel brings that approach to his current gig as Editor in Chief of the right-leaning Ricochet.com. He also co-hosts “The Conservatarians” Podcast with Stephen Miller.

The HiT ‘cast spoke to Gabriel about his curious path to media stardom, why George Clooney is like an overhyped baseball player and one Oscar prediction which may be coming true already.
