Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –


Newsmax TV is a right-of-center “Independent” media brand that positions itself as an alternative to Fox News.

Reportedly growing in popularity, Newsmax snagged another interview with HUD Secretary Carson.

Near the end, Carson drops what some will see as a surprising announcement. It was inexplicably not covered in the Washington, D.C. based Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) ‘news’ to their readers and members earlier today.

Secretary Carson and the Trump Administration have arguably been friendlier to MHVille than any administration in the prior 16 years. See the related reports for more insights.
