Newsmax Keeps Up Gingrich Hype Machine, Downplays Ex-Wife Interview
Topic: Newsmax

Newsmax keeps up its Newt Gingrich hype machine by touting not one, not two, but three polls showing Gingrich doing well:

This was followed by a catchall article by Martin Gould, headlined "Gingrich Surging In All Polls, Overtaking Romney."

Newsmax turned out more pro-Gingrich cheerleading in articles like "Newt Gingrich's Top Five Digs at Mitt Romney" and "Rev. LaHaye: Gingrich 'Sharpest . . . Greatest' Candidate to Beat Obama."

Newsmax readers didn't see that same level of coverage, however, when it came to an interview given to ABC News by Gingrich's second ex-wife, Marianne, in which she says some unflattering things about him. Newsmax kept the coverage relegated to wire accounts that weren't promoted as enthusiastically as, say, the polling results.

Instead, Newsmax touted pushback on the interview by Rush Limbaugh and Gingrich himself.
