The Smoking Gun brings you exclusive documents--cool, confidential, quirky--that can't be found elsewhere on the Web. Using material obtained from government and law enforcement sources, via Freedom of Information requests, and from court files nationwide, we guarantee everything here is 100% authentic.

The site, founded in April 1997 by William Bastone, Barbara Glauber, and Daniel Green, was acquired by Court TV in December 2000. The Smoking Gun is part of Turner Entertainment Digital Network, which is part of the Turner Sports and Entertainment Digital Network, itself a division of Time Warner, a media conglomerate headquartered above a mall in midtown Manhattan.
