Newsmax is a
far-right Republican-oriented rumour factory global news portal run by right-wing hack, conspiracy theorist and Republican Party fan, Christopher Ruddy. Ruddy founded the company in 1998 in, appropriately enough, Florida.
Newsmax principally lives on the Internet. Its website is dominated by shock news, moral outrage, conspiracies, and trashy advertising for dubious "get rich quick" schemes, quack medicines/workout programmes, and publications that feature ads for similar products. Some of this is regurgitated monthly in print form, though is seldom seen at news stands.
Newsmax is popular with the type of people who read WorldNetDaily; both outlets feature similar world views of a idealised conservative God-fearing America besieged by godless libruls, filthy sodomites, evil terrorists, and diseased illegal aliens. However, they managed to even outwingnut WND when one of their contributors called on the military to overthrow Obama in a coup, saying that it would "restore and defend the Constitution." Yes, removing a President elected by the largest margin in decades would restore the Constitution.
Distinguished contributors to Newsmax include David Limbaugh (brother of Rush), Michael Reagan (the adopted son of Saint Ronnie), "Doctor" Laura Schlesinger, (Quack) Doctor Russell Blaylock, and the cartoon-villainish Richard Rahn, chairman of
SPECTRE the Institute for Global Economic Growth.
