Newsmax's Selling of Hyperinflation Faces Scrutiny
Topic: Newsmax

Alex Jones, director of the Shorenstein Center on the Press, Politics and Public Policy at Harvard University, has harshly criticized the Newsmax practice of attacking the Obama administration's policies to stoke readers' fears about the economic outlook, and then urge those readers to purchase Newsmax's financial schemes, with the help of the likes of Dick Morris. Jones calls it "quasi-journalism mixed with promotion."

Media Matters' Joe Strupp has more critiques of Newsmax's practices.
