Miquelon.org The Fighting French

NewsMax.com and French Bashing

05.12.2003 · Posted in Editorials

Christopher Ruddy, the former New York Post reporter who fuelled an industry of conspiracy buffs dedicated to the theory that Vince Foster was murdered, was my debating counterpart on Alan Colmes’ Fox News Radio program on Thursday May 8th.

Christopher Ruddy is now Editor in Chief of the Newsmax.com website that recently apologized for running an e-mail article claiming there was a “Shuttle Cover-up?”. Newsmax.com has relentlessly published countless articles that are not so much based on fact but opinion. Newsmax.com is to the Right what Commondreams.org is to the Left.

Newsmax’s Columnists include Reed Irvine, Michael Savage, Bill O’Reilly and Mike Gallagher. The company generates most of its revenue from sales of politically oriented merchandise.

Newsmax has been leading the France Bashing campaign with its “Boycott Cowardly France” advertising on many websites including the Drudge Report.

Anti-French activity is ‘Cash Cow’ for Newsmax.com, so it came as no surprise at everything Miquelon.org stands for was balked at by Christopher Ruddy.

It was great fun debating the France-Bashing issue with Christopher, and thanks again to Alan Colmes!
