In photos: Conservative media owner Christopher Ruddy of Newsmax is Trump's friend, but offers criticism too.

"Fox is imploding," Ruddy told Univision during a wide-ranging interview in his Newsmax office in Florida. Ruddy is planning to expand his TV and web company to challenge the conservative media giant Fox News. Even with its recent personnel problems and a dip in ratings, Ruddy knows that Fox still rules when it comes to conservative cable. But Ruddy believes his carefully-crafted center-right approach could appeal to a large audience that is tired of partisan politics.
