NewsMax Repeats False Times Story
Topic: Newsmax

A July 16 NewsMax article repeats the false claim made in a New York Times article (we thought good conservatives like NewsMax didn't trust the Times) that she warned a gathering of Democrats in Arkansas "to avoid doing things that inflame the state's conservative base."

In fact, as Media Matters reports, Clinton was actually referring to the Republican-led Congress. As a recording of the speech indicates, Clinton said that Republicans in charge of Congress are "wasting time" by focusing on "controversial ... things that try to inflame their base so they can turn people out and vote for their candidates." 

The Times has yet to issue a correction. Here's NewsMax's big chance to stand up for honest, accurate journalism and show up the Times at the same time by pointing out the Times' error and correcting it for its readers.

On second thought, who are we kidding
