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.
