Newsmax Thrilled Obama Treats It As A Real News Organization
Topic: Newsmax

As much as Newsmax may despise President Obama, it's sure isn't ashamed to gush over him when it feels it needs to. Like when it's invited to the White House.

In a June 9 article, Newsmax editorial director Steve Coz trumpeted how the Obama White House considered Newsmax enough of a "leading online media" entity to be invited for a gathering featuring the president:

Newsmax met with President Barack Obama and his senior advisers at a special White House Summit to discuss a wide range of serious economic issues facing the United States and the world.

In a first for the administration, the White House brought together 22 of the country’s leading online media — including Newsmax, Forbes, The Economist, Kiplinger, MSN, Yahoo, and AOL/Huffington Post — to create a platform to better communicate the administration's economic message.

Newsmax Editorial Director Steve Coz and Newsmax magazine Editor in Chief Ken Chandler attended the summit Wednesday and spoke with Obama and his advisers.

It's not until the fourth paragraph that Coz got around to reporting what was actually said during the gathering. But for Newsmax, that wasn't the real news.

Meanwhile, it seems that WorldNetDaily was not invited to this gathering. It doesn't help that WND's White House reporter, Les Kinsolving, has displayed utter contempt for the president and his team.
