WASHINGTON D.C. — (12-16-21) — Conservative cable news network Newsmax announced on Wednesday they have hired gay conservative Richard Grenell, who served as Trump’s acting Director of National Intelligence as a vice president and on-air analyst for the small cable opinion news network.

“Ric Grenell is a master of politics, media, and government and we believe our viewers will gain great insight from his broad experience and public service,” Christopher Ruddy, CEO of Newsmax said in a statement.

Grenell released a statement saying…“I am honored to join Newsmax as a National Security Contributor and also to spearhead their international partnerships,” said Grenell.

The move is being seen by industry insiders as Newsmax’s way of bringing in new talent to go up against conservative opinion news cable network Fox News.

The problem that 24-hour opinion cable news channels are facing is that Americans are turning off the constant whining and complaining.

For example, in November 2021 Fox News prime time line up had a an average audience of around 2.5 million total viewers down 40% from 2020, while Newsmax, on any given day, has an average viewership of 120,000 viewers in prime time.

Grenell, who is openly gay and lives in Palm Springs, California. Before serving as acting Director of National Intelligence, Grenell was the U.S. Ambassador to Germany where he was hated by local German officials for his constant interference in German affairs.

During his posting in Germany he angered the progressive German government with his public comments to Breitbart in June 2018 saying he wanted to “empower” conservatives in Europe.

He later doubled down on those comments and openly criticized German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s immigration policies during an interview on Tucker Carlson Tonight in November 2018.
