The CEO of Newsmax praised President Joe Biden’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic in an op-ed published Tuesday.
Chris Ruddy, writing on the Newsmax website, said Biden inherited an effective vaccine from President Donald Trump, took it into his arms, and ran with it” — and “should be applauded for making a huge dent in the COVID pandemic.”
Money quote: “At Newsmax, we have strongly advocated for the public to be vaccinated. The many medical experts who have appeared on our network have been near unanimous in support of the vaccine,” added Ruddy, a Trump confidante.
Newsmax similarly declared its support for vaccines earlier this month after one of the rightist network’s prime-time host hosts told viewers “a vaccination is just generally kind of going against nature.”
