Steve Baker

Investigative Reporter at The Blaze

Steve Baker is an opinion contributor for Blaze News and an investigative journalist. He’s a musician and resides in Raleigh. Baker is an investigative journalist known for his work with the Glenn Beck-founded conservative news outlet, Blaze Media. Over the last few years, he has written extensively about the trials of Capitol riot defendants and spoken out in support of the event, which saw a mob of supporters of former President Donald Trump attempt to disrupt the certification of the 2020 presidential election in favor of Joe Biden. Earlier this month, Baker himself became one of those defendants after he was arrested by the FBI and accused of allegedly participating in the storming of the Capitol. He faces four misdemeanor charges that have been leveled against many January 6 defendants, including charges of trespassing and disorderly conduct. He was released from custody later in the day after making his initial appearance in a Dallas court, defense attorney William Shipley told the Associated Press. In the wake of his release, Baker spoke about his arrest for a clip published by The Blaze that was shortly circulated among conservative users on X, previously Twitter. In it, he said his arrest and processing were overdone, he was "marched" through the building in leg chains for misdemeanors while another person who was being booked on a felony was not. He further said that his arrests were because they said "scary words."
