Newsmax is keeping up its newly revived Bernard Kerik rehabilitation business -- after the disgraced former New York City police chief was sentenced to four years in prison on a host of corruption charges -- with a pair of articles this week.
An April 6 article by David Patten touts Joe Scarborough's dubious assertion that Kerik would be "walking be walking the streets today" if Rudy Giuliani had not run for president. That's highly unlikely since since the investigation into Kerik began in 2004.
Patten went on to assert that Kerik "pleaded guilty rather than paying millions of dollars in legal fees against a prosecution that many contend was politically motivated." Patten offered no evidence that "many" people feel this way.
This was followed by an April 7 article promoting another article by longtime Kerik defender Andrew Kreig, published at Harvard University's Nieman Foundation. Kreig also highlighted Scarborough's defense of Kerik.
