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?
I think what we all need to know is how this terrorist group got its weapons.
Because it’s the weekend. The “A” team is not on duty.
The Chinese intern is probably working, hence the hon kong headline. (They are getting their Katrina standing headlines and dusting them off.)
Anything with Kenya in it is filtered as possible birther stuff, and this of course is verboten on Drudge, as in virtually all other media in the USA.
He has much Birther news on his site for years...so doubt if Kenya is a verboten word.
Wonder if he has been threatened by Islamic Terrorists from CAIR, or other Islamic Terrorist Groups? That would be suspicion #1
Send them a news tip. 2/3rds of the way down and on the right.
He did have it yesterday. I woke up to the headline around 5am PST. Then the HK storm bumped it, now it’s completely gone from the page. Strange.
It’s been gone for 24 plus hours with no mention of it...again...this is an unfolding big story with hostages and Hong Kong was taken out of the danger zone with this typhoon about 20 hrs ago when they realized it was going to pass 100 miles to the East. I love weather stories as much as the next guy but Kenya is big important news.
His tweets are not read by the tens of millions who log on to his main page every day and hour.
LOL...Bastardi nailed it...he said it would go inland ENE of Hong Kong. Right on the money, Joe.
Yes — I know that Drudge news is slow on weekends. I guess if something big was up, it would be popping, but it does seem as tho everyday has popping news — even on the weekends.
“Days later, and hes still ignoring the story. At this point it goes beyond we didnt think it was newsworthy to being downright suspicious, as if theres some reason he doesnt WANT it to be covered more prominently.”
I am with you on this one — maybe he got a note from someone warning him to not “hype” terrorist activities, or else.... There is no way he would miss this.
He is not asleep — just put up the Merkel wins headline, but he just refuses to cover the Kenya terrorist attack. This is a deliberate omission.
I see your point, but for me, the glaring omission is the worldwide clam-up on the threat posed by Fukushima and the risk of radioactive contamination.
No one seems to have the ability to stop this.
oh well, out of sight, out of mind...
BTW I get CCTV news on Channel 31.9 here in SO CAL on Regular TV seriously
It is strange, though, that there's no mention of "Kenya" or "Nairobi" on the site.
I haven't been there in months -- maybe years.
They may be going for a "retro" look, but I'd say the site could really use an overhaul.
And get this also Verzion Fios I think Channel 277 too ROFL
I get international news like BBC world news on Channel 107 and now new Al jazeera America at 114 that used to be Current tv at one time
Bump....STILL NOTHING ON DRUDGE.
Matt is dancing at a 24 hr. discotheque some where in Miami. He really likes Village People and Grace Jones.
Actually, I just looked and after almost three days, he does have a regular one-liner:
“Kenya Police Begin Assault to End Mall Seige After 68 Die...
Israel reportedly helping... “
His lack of coverage is a major disappointment. I used to check his site first, when I wanted to check the news, but it’s becoming worthless for major news coverage.
Kenya Police Begin Assault to End Mall Seige After 68 Die... [Yes, bloomberg.com has "Seige" in the headline and the URL.]
