Skip to comments.Double Agent Chris Ruddy (Newsmax) Reaching for Media Pinnacle (Clinton Shill Alert)

Now, in the most cynical move yet, as if to show how contemptuous the opinion molders are of the American publicat least those who think of themselves as conservativeRuddy has been permitted to cash in his Clinton-hater card. Worse than that, he has even done it by seeming to take back all the good apparent truth-seeking work he did when he first came upon the national journalistic scene.
He has become friends with Bill and Hillary Clinton and wont rule out supporting Hillary for president in 2016, writes Businessweek.
Further on, they say this:
In a recent Newsmax editorial lambasting Rand Paul for dredging up the Monica Lewinsky affair, he wrote, As one of the participants in those battles back then who was a critic of President Clinton, I can say with some degree of certainty we made a mistake. About the only area in which he remains a staunch party-line conservative is foreign policy.
Take that, all you folks who went to the trouble of reading The Strange Death of Vincent Foster and especially the ones who wrote good reviews about it online. Hes a changed man. Hear him tell Joe Scarborough on MSNBC that he was wrong. He cares no more about the truth now than do his newfound friends, as if he ever did. And lest you think hes just talking about the Lewinsky business, which I cant recall his ever having written anything about, look who has kind words to say about the reformed Ruddy:
Ruddys own conservatism, despite a fervent anti-Obama streak, is far from Tea Party obstructionism. People mellow or change or get perspective as they age, says liberal journalist Joe Conason, often Ruddys foil during the Clinton battles, who now counts him as a friend. Or most people do. Hes not this right-wing kid that he was.
Sad to hear but good to know.
What does Rush always say? “Follow the money.”
I guess he’s the next David Brock.
But then the guy from the advertising company sent another list of websites aimed at a "left-wing" demographic. It turns out some of them were also owned by Chris Ruddy.
Thanks, but no thanks. I wasn't born to be a customer, dude.
That was the last time I ever even read anything from Newsmax.
Ol' Dead-Eyes Conason loves Christopher Ruddy now?
That'll knock ya back a step or two.
Wonder if he'll become a Lefty zealot like Brock?
That’s odd. I stumbled upon Newsmax TV recently and have watched a few times. They plan to be a 24 hour streaming news channel, but at present they have two, three hour shows they run and rerun all day.
One is hosted by Steve Malzburg and the other by J. D. Hayworth and another guy. Haven’t heard any pro-Clinton, backsliding talk on either of those shows. Pretty conservative. Could become a worthwhile, online news source.
I set up a free blogger page to read all my conservative rss feeds. And newsmax is by far the most squishy. This explains a lot.
