Vincent Foster death coverup investigations reports books, Christopher Ruddy journalist? businessman? opportunist?, Journalism dead in US?, Ruddy goes from exposing Clinton chicanery to lauding and contributing to Clinton foundation


Who is Christopher Ruddy and why did he go from investigating and exposing the coverup of the Vincent Foster death and the Clintons involvement to lauding them and donating to the Clinton Foundation?





From the NY Times July 10, 2011.

“After graduating from the London School of Economics, Mr. Ruddy briefly taught high school in the Bronx and served as an official in the United Federation of Teachers, the union routinely demonized by conservative politicians and commentators.

He branched out on his own to start Newsmax in 1998 after seeing how the Internet, particularly the Drudge Report, had helped drive the story of Bill Clinton’s affair with Monica Lewinsky. A friend, Bernadette Casey, daughter of a former Reagan associate, William J. Casey, helped provide $25,000 in seed money.”

From the Washington Post.

“Back in the 1990s, Ruddy was a well-known Clinton antagonist, as he explored the death of White House aide Vince Foster in the New York Post and later at the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.”

Ruddy wrote “The Strange Death of Vincent Foster” which was published in 1997.

A presentation he gave on Cspan II.


Ruddy’s early years at NewsMax continued to produce some hard hitting articles about the Foster death, investigations and Clinton involvement.

At some point these 2 articles were removed from the website.

From NewsMax April 4, 2001.

“‘Vince Foster’s Gun’ Serial Number Searched Before Death

When Vince Foster was found dead from an apparent gunshot wound to the head in 1993, the government was quick to write off the death as a suicide.

That sat well with Bill Clinton and Vince’s closest confidante, Hillary Rodham Clinton.”

From NewsMax December 4, 2003 via Free Republic.

“Vince Foster: What the Media Won’t Tell You”

“Vince Foster was not only deputy White House counsel but also the personal attorney to Bill and Hillary Clinton.

On the night of Foster’s death, top Clinton aides made a frantic effort to enter and remove documents from his West Wing office. In the days that followed, federal investigators were stymied in their investigation of Foster’s office and strange death.

Since Foster’s July 1993 death, the facts of his death have been obfuscated by friends of Bill and Hillary in the major media, but here’s the undeniable truth:”

“The FBI never officially investigated the case but simply signed off on the Park Police “probe.” The bureau had little choice. The day before Foster’s death, Bill Clinton hurriedly fired the director of the FBI, William Sessions. Sessions later charged that Clinton had “politicized” the bureau.

Later, Robert Fiske, selected by Clinton’s counsel Bernie Nussbaum and Janet Reno, quickly confirmed the Park Police probe as a suicide.

But when Ken Starr entered the investigation, he reopened the case. His chief prosecutor in the case, Miquel Rodriguez, later quit the Starr investigation, claiming that Starr’s staff was engaging in a cover-up of Foster’s death.

Rodriguez, a Harvard-educated federal prosecutor, argued that one of the Polaroid photos taken of Foster at the crime scene indicated an additional wound on Foster’s neck – never noted on the autopsy report. Favish’s suit before the Supreme Court is seeking to release this photo, among others.”

All of a sudden Ruddy is buddy buddy with the Clintons, lauding them and making major contributions to the Clinton Foundation.


Let’s review the history of NewsMax.

From ConWebWatch May 30, 2002.

“NewsMax has lost a lot of money. Nearly $11 million, in fact, since the site’s launch in 1998. NewsMax lost roughly $8.4 million of that in 2000 and 2001.”

“Richard Mellon Scaife has a stake in NewsMax. According to the prospectus, Scaife owns about 7.2 percent of NewsMax Media”

From Politico August 2, 2014.

“Ruddy and the late former New York City Mayor Ed Koch helped broker a July 2007 meeting with Scaife and the former president in the Clinton Foundation’s Harlem office, and Scaife donated more than $100,000 to the foundation. Still, Scaife raised eyebrows by praising Hillary Clinton during her 2008 campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination, and his Tribune-Review later endorsed her over Barack Obama ahead of the Pennsylvania primary.”

From Joseph Farah of WND March 27, 2012.

“Newsmax’s Chris Ruddy was once a very good friend of mine.

I thought I knew him well.”

“He began to write a series of penetrating articles about the mysterious death of Vincent Foster and was, in a matter of weeks, let go. Why? Because Murdoch had important business with the Clinton administration and didn’t need the headaches Ruddy was presenting him with.

For the next year or so, I did everything in my power to help Ruddy pursue that story and others involving the Clinton scandals. When the New York Times Magazine did a story about “The Clinton Haters,” Ruddy and I were in the middle of it. When Hillary Clinton talked about “the vast right-wing media conspiracy,” we were in the middle of it – along with a guy named Dick Scaife.

Unlike Ruddy and me, Scaife had money – lots of it. He soon hired Ruddy to pursue the Clinton scandals at his newspaper, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

I warned Ruddy about Scaife. I never trusted him. I told Ruddy he would compromise his values if he went to work for Scaife. He didn’t listen.

Today, Dick Scaife and Chris Ruddy own Newsmax – some would suggest my competition.”

“The point is simple. There are many people today who are profiting from their allegedly “conservative” credentials. But some of them – like my old friend Chris Ruddy – have become part of the problem. They haven’t just “compromised,” they’ve gone over to the dark side. In fact, some of them are playing both sides against the middle in an indecent grasp to be part of the establishment.

I just thought you should know.”

Follow the money.

Sadly, moneyed interests control most of the “information” that used to be called journalism.

And the Clintons control lots of money and moneyed interests.
