Newsmax Again Promoting Minutemen, Hiding Controversies
Topic: Newsmax

Dave Eberhart is apparently the appointed press agent for the Minuteman anti-immigration group at Newsmax.

A Jan. 29 Newsmax article by Eberhart touts how "The Minuteman Civil Defense Corps is getting ready to again battle against amnesty for illegal aliens." As he did in a previous Minuteman-promoting article, Eberhart fails to note that his primary Minuteman source, Chris Simcox, has faced questions about the money he raised ostensibly to build a private border fence, and the group's PAC has been criticized for having much of the money it has raised go toward "operating expenses" and not toward Minuteman activities.

Nor does Eberhart make any apparent effort to allow anyone to respond to Simcox's claims.
