The CEO and Newsmax TV reportedly pledged $1 million to the Clinton Foundation. 

Chris Ruddy, the Newsmax CEO, has reportedly been “friends with the Clintons since 2007″ and “last year pledged $1 million to the Clinton Foundation over a five-year period.”

Ruddy told the Wall Street Journal through a spokesman that though he felt Hillary Clinton would “make a great presidential candidate,” the donation was not an endorsement.

Lsat year, Ruddy launched “NewsmaxTV, a 24-hour cable news channel that will be, he says, a kinder, gentler Fox.”

“Our goal is to be a little more boomer-oriented, more information-based rather than being vituperative and polarizing,” Ruddy said.
