Newsmax Still Defending Trump The Day Before His (Latest) Arraignement
Topic: Newsmax

Newsmax continued its aggressively pro-Trump coverage of Donald Trump's latest indictment. Here's what it published on June 12, the day efore his arraignment over charges related to the classified documents he unlawfully kept:

Newsmax also promoted the speech and fundraiser Trump planned to give after his arraignment. By contrast, Newsmax included the usual spare coverage of views critical of Trump:

Newsmax also served up more neutral articles about related news:

Columnist Larry Bell weighed in with more Trump defense in his June 12 column:

Don’t just take this from an openly conservative opinion guy.

Even the virulently anti-Trump Wall Street Journal editorial board recognizes destructive influences of Merrick Garland’s partisan legal assaults on the former president and leading GOP candidate for reelection while overtly protecting the incumbent.

Noting that “this is the first time in U.S. history that the prosecutorial power of the federal government has been used against a former President who is also running against the sitting President,” they conclude that “the charges are a destructive intervention into the 2024 election, and the potential trial will hang over the race.“


The Wall Street Journal reminds us that “It was once unthinkable in America that the government’s awesome power of prosecution would be turned on a political opponent. That seal has now been broken.”

It’s still unthinkable.

In breaking that seal of public trust, Democrats have awakened and released voter fury that will hopefully bite back in 2024 and many decades beyond.

The fact that the Journal is supporting Trump doesn't mean it's a bad idea to prosecute him. Indeed, both Bell and the Journal appear to believe that Trump is above the law.

(As noted in the screenshot, Newsmax's TV operation hasn't quite reached full professional level, seeing as how it's including events from this year in a "2021 Timeline" graphic.)
