NewsMax, GOP Talking Point Repository
Topic: Newsmax

NewsMax is doing yeoman's work in purveying Republican spin points.

Bob Woodward's book: Ronald Kessler relayed former White House chief of staff Andrew Card's denial of claims attributed to him in Woodward's new book "State of Denial." James Hirsen, meanwhile, attacked Woodward himself, calling him the "Kitty Kelley of the Beltway."

Mark Foley: After apparently being temporarily stunned by the allegations against the NewsMax (and Christopher Ruddy) favorite, NewsMax has apparently gotten over the shock (which caused it to throw Foley under the bus earlier in the day) and defend Republican honor.

An Oct. 2 article raises the shocking possibility that politics may have played a part in the disclosure of Foley's solicitations of teen male congressional pages. And another article plays a variation of the Clinton Equivocation; here, NewsMax claims that "unlike Republican scandals like Foley's, where shame and resignation were the outcome, the Democrats' shameful behavior were either blithely ignored or jocularly accepted."
