Heh. Here are the headline story and all of the Inside Cover stories on Newsmax.com right now:

Headline:

Romney Backed by Goldman Sachs, Bailout Banks

More Stories (highlighted stories immediately below headline):

  • Rev. Wildmon: Gingrich Can 'Fix' America
  • Mark Levin: Gingrich Is Strong Conservative
  • Discrepancies Found in Romney's Finances
  • Romney Attacked Ted Kennedy Over ‘Blind Trust’

Smiley picture of Mitt Romney with following caption:

Mitt Romney’s ties to Goldman have already become a campaign issue. During Thursday’s CNN debate, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich stated that Romney profited from millions he invested in a Goldman Sachs fund that relied heavily on investments in the mortgage-backed securities linked to the 2008 implosion on Wall Street. Romney said he personally didn’t direct the investment, which he said was made through his trust.(AP Photo)

Inside Cover (front-page stories immediately below smiley Mitt):

  • McFarlane, Shirley: Newt an 'Enthusiastic' Reagan backer
  • Mike Reagan, Rush Limbaugh Blast Romney
  • Rush: Romney Camp Behind Anti-Gingrich Stories
  • Gingrich Ad: Romney Dishonest
  • Palin: Newt 'Crucified' By Romney Allies, GOP
  • Romney Backed by Goldman Sachs, Bailout Banks
  • Romney Attacked Ted Kennedy Over ‘Blind Trust’
  • Bill O'Reilly: Gingrich 'Bona Fide' Conservative
  • Rev. Wildmon: Gingrich Can 'Fix' America
  • Mark Levin: Gingrich Is Strong Conservative
  • Conservative Establishment Gunning for Newt
  • Short on Cash, Santorum Hanging on
  • Discrepancies Found in Romney's Finances
  • Obama: GOP Will Struggle to Defend Economy
  • Gingrich:Use Reagan Model After Castro Gone

As Gen. Buck Turgidson (George C. Scott) might have said, "Mr. President, we must not allow -- a media-bias gap!"

My favorite line in the anti-Romney philippic: After the picture caption quotes Romney as noting that all of his investments are in a blind trust, ergo he had no say over the investment in Goldman Sachs, one of the Inside Cover stories (promoted to More Stories) is the cleverly headlined, "Romney Attacked Ted Kennedy Over ‘Blind Trust’."

Obscur, Monsieur Ruddy; très obscur!

I've never read Newsmax, but I might have to start.

Just for fun, I went to Hugh Hewitt the other day and went through his blog posts all the way back to September. His bias is more clever, but it's still clear.

The negative Newt stories have comments like, "This one is going to hurt!" and the positive Newt stories (Were there any? It's been a few days and I don't remember a single one) would be met with something like, "This won't help Newt".

I think a sorta positive Newt story was his good showing a week before the SC primary and Hewitt dismissed it.

Another website I frequent, Powerlineblog, is way biased to the negative on Newt. You can tell who is biased toward Romney too, simply by the pictures they post.

You might notice Steven Hayward finally had a halfway decent picture of Newt when he defended him against John's false charges.

Maybe I should stop reading Powerlineblog and Hugh Hewitt and start reading Newsmax.
