Yeah, I know that finding dumb stuff at Newsmax is shooting fish in a barrel, but this cracked me up:
If Simon & Garfunkel were still recording today, they might pen a hit new song, to the beat of “Mrs. Robinson,” titled “Where Have You Gone, Milton Friedman?”
The guy who wrote this is the much-feted CEO of Newsmax, Chris Ruddy:
Ruddy, the CEO and editor of Newsmax, is emerging as the most prominent online voice of the conservative movement. Newsmax has flourished because Ruddy has exhibited a stronger commitment to the bottom line than to presenting himself as an ideologue.
“I’m not looking for a cult of personality of Chris Ruddy,” he said. “Running a business takes 24/7.”[….]
A smart, cautious CEO, Ruddy is pleased to drop hints that Newsmax has become the leading online conservative voice.[…]
Ruddy learned the lesson well when he was trying to raise money for Newsmax. “People said, ‘If this is the Chris Ruddy Web site, you’re not going to have a lot of value as a business,'” he recalled.
My media philosophy is to just try to be the best DougJ that DougJ can be.
