Trumpsters to Buy Newsmax? Will the Mossad sell?


Slate: Allies to President Donald Trump want Fox News to feel the heat. Increasingly angry at what they see as a turn away from Trump by the news network that was once seen as a staunch supporter of the president, some of the president’s wealthy backers want to build an alternative.

And they’re focusing on the pro-Trump cable channel Newsmax TV as a possibility, according to the Wall Street Journal. Hicks Equity Partners, an investment firm that has ties to the Republican National Committee, has been in discussions in recent months to acquire and invest in Newsmax as part of a deal that could also include a streaming-video service.

Although it’s unclear whether the talks between Hicks Equity and Newsmax will move forward, the fact that they’re even happening shows how Trump’s allies believe there is room to compete against Fox News.

Newsmax has seen a surge in viewership lately as Trump’s most ardent supporters are angry at Fox News for having declared Joe Biden as the president-elect.

Many are still angry that Fox confirmed Arizona for Biden before other networks. In contrast, Newsmax regularly parrots the president’s baseless claims of voter fraud and has refused to declare a winner in the election.

  1. Why not, Newsmax could be renamed to Trumpmax and they can use a slogan something sort DeBeers, 1948 “A diamond is forever” but turn it in “A Trump is forever” 🙂
