Quotable

“Newsmax would never become ‘Trump TV.’ We have always seen ourselves as an independent news agency, and we want to continue with that mission. But we are open—[Trump] is going to be a political and media force after he leaves the White House, and we would be open to talking to him about a weekly show… we would like to overtake Fox News in the next 12 months, and I think it’s do-able… Newsmax is moderately conservative and we will continue to have a moderately conservative viewpoint on things—including the president.”
