Newsmax keeps up its Newt Gingrich hype machine by touting not one, not two, but three polls showing Gingrich doing well:
- InsiderAdvantage Poll: Gingrich Now Leads Romney in S. Carolina
- Rasmussen: Gingrich Tops Romney in SC
- Politico Poll: Gingrich Nears Romney in SC
This was followed by a catchall article by Martin Gould, headlined "Gingrich Surging In All Polls, Overtaking Romney."
Newsmax turned out more pro-Gingrich cheerleading in articles like "Newt Gingrich's Top Five Digs at Mitt Romney" and "Rev. LaHaye: Gingrich 'Sharpest . . . Greatest' Candidate to Beat Obama."
Newsmax readers didn't see that same level of coverage, however, when it came to an interview given to ABC News by Gingrich's second ex-wife, Marianne, in which she says some unflattering things about him. Newsmax kept the coverage relegated to wire accounts that weren't promoted as enthusiastically as, say, the polling results.
