NewsMax Tries to Cash In on Terror Threat
Topic: Newsmax

Following Homeland Security secretary Michael Chertoff's claim of a "gut feeling" that the United States faced an increased risk of attack this summer, NewsMax seizes on the statement to ... sell radios:

Homeland Security Chief Michael Chertoff is warning that he expects terror attacks on U.S. soil as early as this summer.
British and German intelligence sources have also warned a terror attack is imminent in the U.S. Recently, FBI Director Robert Mueller warned al-Qaeda is desperately seeking to acquire radioactive material to use here in the U.S.

Homeland Security advises every family and home to have an emergency radio, and one not dependent on home electricity. Please check out below our FREE offer for the Kaito Emergency Radio which includes a hand crank generator —  Go Here Now or read the information below.

Not only is that a bit crass, it ignores an inconvenient fact NewsMax itself reported: that the Bush administration has stated there was no specific, credible terrorism threat against the United States.
