Pure Bullspit Sites
Designed to separate you from your money.

NEWSMAX.COM

The ultimate conservative BS site

This site has NOTHING to do with news, just money.
Endless, obnoxious videos, (1/2 hour long) that serve pure cr@p.
Unsubstantiated claims, covered in whipped cream BS, then "Send Us Money". The narrator always sounds just like a carnival barker, making wild claims, designed to make you feel like an idiot if you do not respond immediately.

Try a few Google searches - newsmax liars, newsmax ads

Newsmax Privacy Policy

"We will do anything and everything we can think of to violate your privacy". (paraphrased) Read it yourself.

www.moneynews.com
www.newsmax.com/video
www.newsmaxhealth.com/
www.newsmaxworld.com/

Pure, ultra-conservative BULL.

www.marined3.com

Over 1/2 hour of hyper-bullspit. "You have been specially selected".
Only $140 per bottle for vitamin D3. Such a deal.

taboola.com serves many newsmax ads.
Which tells you all you need to know about Taboola.
