Why is NewsMax Praising Senate Conservatives Fund? The $64,800 Question

While it sells its readers’ e-mail addresses for profit, NewsMax tells the public that it is a “fair,” “balanced,” and “independent” “news site”.

NewsMax Special Edition magazine praising Senator Jim DeMint, from whom NewsMax has received $64,800 in the same month.During the month of October 2010, NewsMax has received $64,800 in payments from the Senate Conservatives Fund. Also during the month of October 2010, NewsMax has released what it calls a “special edition” magazine featuring the accomplishments of Senator Jim DeMint. The Senate Conservatives Fund is a creation of Senator Jim DeMint. Published on the NewsMax website during the month of October 2010 is a long article praising Senator Jim DeMint and his Senate Conservatives Fund for their valiant effort to “reshape the Republican Party.”

NewsMax did not disclose existence of these payments when publishing the articles.

You decide if that’s “fair” and “balanced.” You tell me whether that’s “independent.”
