Posted on 09/22/2013 9:03:59 AM PDT by My Favorite Headache
Anyone know why Matt Drudge has ignored the Kenyan mall massacre that is going on still at this hour? He has updated with other stories but has not once posted a single link to this on-going nightmare going on in Kenya. I find this very odd and can't think of a reason why he would be ignoring it?
He had it as his headline all day yesterday.
... because the story has only gotten worse/bigger since yesterday.
When he wakes up he might
Drudge doesn’t choose most of the stories any more. Joe Curl does.
Don’t know, but it’s the exception that proves the rule—there’s very little that’s newsy that Drudge doesn’t catch. Probably will be up by tomorrow.
What I love is that he’s got Palin’s defense of Cruz on Obamacare above the title in big font, and he also has Cruz’s Sunday AM appearance covered.
In that sense, he’s got his priorities perfectly in order IMO.
Yeah, of course you’re right. Forgot that.
So the Drudgereport is now Curling?
Yes. Curl runs the show now.
I refreshed his page a bunch of times yesterday and only saw the hurricane on it.
Serious...I am on the page right now and the headline I see is Palin Bombs Away and the hurricane story moved to the left side of the page. Not one story in the links below about Kenya and didn’t see any yesterday and I have cleared out the cache and refreshed just to see if it was my computer but my cell phone is showing the exact same thing.
With American and Canadians being killed, you would think the media would want to carry this.
An American diplomats wife was apparently killed
The only thing I saw was a hurricane headed for Hong Kong.
“He had it as his headline all day yesterday.”
Not where I am — I refresh often, but the headline was the typhoon, the Kenya terror attack wasn’t even mentioned — still isn’t.
Someone else made a comment on one of the threads yesterday about Drudge’s lack of coverage of this Breaking News.
I guess terrorists killing non-Muslims and holding them hostage is not sufficiently important for Drudge, but someone peeing on vegetables in a grocery store, is important news.
At this rate he is going to lose a large number of his readership...
And an on-going hostage situation....I can’t stand “cable news” channels on the weekends and their B crew and canned programming. I refuse to turn on Al Jazeera or Russia Today to watch the one sided programming either.
“I refreshed his page a bunch of times yesterday and only saw the hurricane on it.”
Me too. Nothing on the terrorist attack in Kenya.
Probably because the headline didn’t get many hits. Black on Black crime whether in Chicago or Nairobi isn’t news any more. Same for Muslim vs Muslim bombings....
Kenya TV feed
Not in English of course
