Newsmax Rounds Up Right-Wing 'Experts' To Bash Obama
Topic: Newsmax

One of Newsmax writer David Patten's favorite techniques of biased reporting is to round up right-wing pundits to opine on the subject of the day and call them "experts." He has apparently decided it was time to bring that technique back.

In a Sept. 8 Newsmax article, Patten cites "experts and commentators" to claim that "Deferring to Congress to authorize an attack on Syria’s Bashar al-Assad may have been the biggest gamble of Barack Obama’s presidency – and could significantly weaken the presidential office if it backfires." But as per usual, his list of "experts" is dominated by conservatives:

  • Rep. Peter King (R-NY)
  • Former Rep. Pete Hoekstra (R-MI)
  • John Bolton (Former U.N. ambassador)
  • Dan Gillerman (former Israeli ambassador to U.S.)

The only person Patten cites who is not obviously conservative is the Broooings Institution's Salman Shaikh.
