CHRISTOPHER RUDDY, CEO, NEWSMAX MEDIA: George, well, first of all, thank you for inviting me on. I want to make clear, I don’t speak for the president. I run Newsmax. I’m an independent news agency. But I do think the press has been very unfair. And even the setup for this segment of me coming on.
You know, there have been so many things for the press to discuss. Let’s talk about the first 100 days of this presidency. The incredible record that the president has had. A-plus cabinet. Jobs he’s hoping — creating tens of thousands of new jobs. Merkel, he had a really impressive meeting with her. Probably got hundreds of billions of dollars in concessions from her, certainly an increase in the NATO budget. And the health care plan is coming.
So when you come and say, oh, it’s all about the wiretapping, et cetera, the president last night was with myself, briefly, and Alan Dershowitz who, as you know, is not a supporter of the president. And the president was discussing that all of these leaks have taken place, classified meetings and conversations he had with the president of Mexico, the prime minister of Australia. General Flynn’s private conversation was leaked. These are criminal acts. Even Alan Dershowitz said it was very, very serious stuff, but the press isn’t talking about that. [KEEP READING HERE]
