"Newsmax's Falsehoods"

From an article about NewsMax (Scaife)

Newsmax's Stimulus Falsehoods
The Clinton-bashing glory days of the 1990s are reprised at Newsmax, where the same treatment -- and lack of adherence to facts -- is now applied to President Obama.

A recent Media Matters article detailed how conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh's attacks on President Barack Obama echoed the attacks and smears Limbaugh issued against President Clinton and his administration during the 1990s.

The same phenomenon is happening at Newsmax: Its misleading and false claims about Obama and his administration echo its anti-Clinton work during the 1990s.

As ConWebWatch has noted, Newsmax began attacking Obama long before his presidential inauguration, bashing the stimulus plan he has promoted to jump-start the languishing economy. Newsmax has since moved to repeating misleading claims and telling outright falsehoods about Obama and the stimulus, with reporter David A. Patten leading the way.
NewsMax is apparently owned by Richard Mellon Scaife. (See earlier posts)

So, that's NewsMax and WorldNetDaily at it. (Jospeh Farrah and Scaife)
