After airing an interview with Donald Trump, Newsmax host clarifies the network “has accepted the election results as legal and final”

In the aftermath of the 2020 election, Newsmax was one of Donald Trump's staunchest allies in embracing election denial conspiracy theories. In fact, the volume and fervor of conspiracy theories at Newsmax caught the eye of Fox News figures, who promptly ramped up their own conspiracy theories to compete for viewers.

Ultimately, like Fox News, Newsmax was sued by Dominion Voting Systems and Smartmatic for spreading false conspiracies about voting machines.
