New York (CNN Business)If you were to judge Newsmax's views about Facebook (FB) by what its hosts say on-air, you would probably be under the impression that the right-wing channel sees the social media company as an enemy of the conservative movement.

But, behind the scenes, Newsmax is quietly doing significant business with Facebook, forking over millions to use the social media network as a promotional tool.

In the last 90 days, Newsmax has purchased approximately $1. 5 million in ads from Facebook, according to records available publicly on the social media company's website.

For instance, while Sebastian Gorka as recently as Sunday was condemning "censorship of Big Tech on social media" on Newsmax's airwaves, the network has in the past 90 days run more than 100 advertisements promoting his show.

It's unclear how much the advertising has helped Newsmax grow on Facebook over the last 90 days, but the channel's official page boasts nearly 3. 3 million followers.
