After years of appearing as a guest on FOX NEWS, in December of 2015 I was offered the opportunity to host and produce a program on NewsmaxTV. ‘Dennis Michael Lynch: UNFILTERED’ launched on January 18, 2016.

And although there’s joy in adding up the numbers, it all equates to zero if I’m uncomfortable with the words that flow through the TV. Thus, I move on knowing my integrity and name remain in tact.
