[COMMENTARY] Not-At-All-Surprising Report Shows That Newsmax ‘Peddles Misinformation’ About January 6th

This is the kind of story that makes me annoyed that there isn’t a dedicated font for sarcasm, so you’ll just have to read for context when I say: IN A SHOCKING NEW REPORT, fake news channel Newsmax–which I always refer to as “Newshacks” whenever possible–was found to be spreading misinformation about the January 6th insurrection while the House Select Committee hearings were being aired.

Now, I get that you have to do your counter-programming and keep spoonfeeding your rancid gruel of lies and propaganda to a more than willing audience who can’t be bothered to think for themselves, Newshacks, and it seems like a waste of hours and resources to even write a report on the swill you serve up, but it’s also an important window into how you’re intentionally deceptive all for the sake of clicks and money.

According to NewsGuard, a tech firm that monitors misinformation (but which sounds to me like a filter you can put on your parents’ TV so it won’t get Newsmax or Fox), Newsmax has “broadcast at least 40 false claims or conspiracy theories about the attack” since the hearings began in June. Here’s my favorite quote from a NewsGuard analyst regarding Newsmax’s “coverage” of the hearings: “If you’re watching Newsmax, you may come away with an entirely different feeling of what happened at the hearings, and what happened on January 6th.” NO, REALLY? SHE ASKED SARCASTICALLY. That’s SO FASCINATING.

Their version of the news is Greg “My Mom Says I Can Stay Up Until 10!” Kelly suggesting that Trump’s call to intimidate a witness before they testified was a “butt dial.” I want to be making that up, but I’m not. But please, in-depth report, tell me more about Newsmax not being real news, I’m FASCINATED.

Look, I’m sure the fine people at NewsGuard (which also repels stains!) mean well, but it’s 2022, and if you don’t know by now that Newsmax is giant lying crapola for people who also think Little Caesar’s is food, you’re on your own. The stupid, it burns so very white hot.
