I had a choice of subscribing to one or all of the news letters, accepting one or all of them beyond the free time and then being charged for a subscription(s), OR canceling, on one or all by using the cancel option, ( Remove from email list ), that came with every email they sent me, of which there were many. I used the ' Remove from email ' option on every one of the emails they sent me, over and over again. Now I get a credit card bill for $ 49.00 for a subscription to one of them, Newsmax* Franklin Report. I did not order it.
Newsmax also promotes political disinformation that goes beyond mere bias and into the realm of blatant falsehood:
On May 26, 2000, NewsMax published an article claiming Hillary Clinton refused to meet with the Gold Star Mothers, a group of mothers of servicemen. According to the Gold Star Mothers organization, this was false and "Senator Clinton greeted us graciously on Gold Star Mothers Sunday, 2005." This story was also debunked at other websites.
A 2005 NewsMax report about Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania, claiming he was "teaming up" with rock band U2 for a fund-raiser, gained considerable attention. Santorum had actually purchased 66 tickets to a sold-out show and was reselling these to campaign supporters at $1,000 per seat. The band issued a statement denying it was involved in the practice, saying, "U2 concerts are categorically not fund-raisers for any politician; they are rock concerts for U2 fans." Rather than admitting the error and issuing a correction, NewsMax simply changed its article about the fund-raiser without telling readers it had been changed, stating that the story was misinterpreted.
Newsmax combines aggressive advertising in their "around the web" section, with lies and decption to promote products:
Newsmax has a category on their sidebar called Around the Web, which is nothing more than deceptive advertising that looks like news links and leads to pseudo-science information and products. For example: “Suffer with Low Energy, Weight Gain & Fatigue”, which leads to a new website promoting products. In another category called Specials, they publish news with sensational headlines such as: “Nobel Prize-Winning Discovery Makes Your Cells Nearly “Immortal” SPECIAL: New way to grow biologically younger,“ which again leads to an advertisement.
Newsmax routinely promotes psuedoscience and rumour as being factual. It is not:
. . . When it comes to science, Newsmax does not always align with the consensus of experts in the given field, for example, they often promote that there is “no global warming“, which is simply untrue. Further, they have promoted misinformation regarding the safety of vaccines, chemtrails, CoronaVirus conspiracies, and unproven 2020 election fraud disinformation.
Newsmax has failed numerous fact checks. Here is a partial example of such:
Does President Barack Obama support taxing motorists based on the number of miles they drive? – False
World Health Organization (WHO) has rescinded its advice which urges isolation for COVID-19 patients and social distancing in public. – False
Government Fast-Tracked $29 Million to Charleston – Misleading
Hillary Clinton refused to meet with a contingent of Gold Star mothers. – False
The Obama administration provided a $3.7 million grant to the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China. – Mostly False
Will a COVID-19 vaccine alter your DNA? – False
“He basically controls global health policy. What’s the plan? Using vaccines to track people.” – False
As an example of voter fraud, “we have literally 9,000 people who voted in this election (in Nevada) who don’t live in Nevada.” – Pants on Fire
