Posted on 03/09/2012 10:51:23 AM PST by Free ThinkerNY
A former Los Angeles radio show host is claiming today that Democrat Barack Obama won the presidency in 2008 with the secret assistance of the grand daddy of Republican bloggers: Matt Drudge.
John Ziegler, a conservative activist who gained fame in Southern California for his talk shows on LA powerhouse station KFI-AM from 2004 to 2007, wrote in a column he had living proof that at critical points in the last election Drudge erased or blocked from his Drudge Report potent, negative news about Obama.
But Ziegler's living proof is now dead: Andrew Breitbart, a former Drudge Report employee, who created his own conservative media empire after Obama's election and died March 1 in Los Angeles at the age of 43.
"It became very clear to me during the 2008 primary season that, for whatever reason, the Drudge Report was completely in the tank for the Obama campaign," writes Ziegler, who calls the president a "socialist/radical."
That clarity prompted Ziegler to ask Breitbart if his suspicions were true.
He continues, "When I addressed this concern with Breitbart, he readily agreed and admitted great frustration at what was happening. He even revealed that on several occasions he had tried to post prominent 'negative' stories about Obama on the site but had seen Drudge take the highly unusual step of not only moving them down the page but also taking them off the site completely."

Matt’s a homo. Why wouldn’t he like Obama?
Have not done Drudge for a month or so now. Took him out of my tabs and banished him to direct entry only. Rumor has it Zero and Drudge are close buddies.
This is horse s**t. When will we stop believing every bad thing any one with a website wants to say?
Also, who reading Drudge would vote for Obama anyway?
Let’s put on our rationality hats here!
Well given that we now know Breitbart used to work for Drudge way back when in 1995, that explains Drudge’s original conservative leanings.
But Drudge hasn’t been conservative in his leanings since about 2004 and he’s only gotten more liberal and anti conservative over the years.
Oh what a coincidence, 2004, that’s about the time Breitbart left Drudge and went to work for (then republican) Arianna Huffington.
