DRUDGE IN TANK FOR OBAMA IN 2008, AGREED ANDREW BREITBART ACCORDING TO JOHN ZIEGLER
THE FREEDOM POST ^ | March 11, 2012 | Matthew Burke

Posted on 03/11/2012 1:26:10 AM PST by SaveOurRepublicFromTyranny

Was Matt Drudge of the Drudge Report secretly in the tank for Barack Obama in the election of 2008? "Yes", says filmmaker, John Ziegler, who provides examples of Drudge's Obama bias in the statement below along with claims that the late Andrew Breitbart, who worked with Drudge on the Drudge Report in 2008, told Ziegler himself that Drudge was obviously favoring Obama by failing to report negative stories about Obama. Ziegler details three examples, including the Reverend Jeremiah Wright story, where Drudge buried or outright removed negative stories about Obama. This perhaps explains the previously untold story as to why Breitbart quit working with Drudge...

I guess most anyone can be bought off or intimidated/threatened by the Obumbo Marxist regime.

Pole-smoking political bedfellows. Not a surprise.

I'm not sure about drudge but it seems that when a media type realizes that they have
the power to influence an election and history it could become a very powerful
aphrodisiac. The temptation to throw any sense of integrity under the bus becomes very real.
I'm just trying to place myself in other positions to answer why people don't
realize common sense.

Just my thoughts.

I think Drudge just hated Hillary and this Ziegler has an axe to grind.

I can forgive nearly everybody who voted for Obama. What was known about him was hidden from nearly everybody and the truth about him hadn’t gained traction.

It was a historic moment and too many people drank the kool-aid.

Now we know about him, the damage he has caused America, and the damage he intends to do to America before he leaves, after being gifted by George Soros. Anybody who is not willing to tell the truth about Obama now is committing high treason and is actively participating in the destruction of the country.

You are so right.

Conspiracies generally aren’t really hidden, it is just that folks are so readily willing to deny deny deny, until it is too late to deny further, and then sometimes it really is too late.

The writings of Communists, socialists, leftists, fascists environmentalists, etc are all out there for the reading. The question remains am I taken in as believer, or...

I will be interested to see what percentage of blacks vote for Obama in 2012. I understand that most blacks voted for him because he is black, and that it was historical. I don’t fault them for that, but if they go all out for him in 2012 after what has happened since he was elected, then I will be disappointed, and my respect for them will be diminished.

It was the same 4 years ago, only some did not know it, while the major players were and are fully aware of the situation.

Here’s the 26 page FictionFixer document that proves with a high degree of certainty ‘Dreams’ was written by Bill Ayers:

No.

About 2-3 days of research on the net would have put serious doubts in anyone’s mind as to the unfitness of Hussien Obama. I thought about it. I’ll admit, I was Bush fatigued and pissed off. After about 48 hours of searching, recearching and reading, I came to the conclusion that has taken some years to realize.

The information was there. This was a known failure before it happened.

I agree with you on that.

Blacks have been amongst the most hurt by his policies.

If they vote for him at about the same rate, it’s fair to say that they are asking to be hurt by these policies.

Here here! Most of the people I know that voted for him are idiots. Nothing will sway them that this guy is a Marxist. People do not want to face the reality that he is anything but well-intentioned.

I disagree. Obama showed us exactly who he was although the media tried to obscure it. I hold those who voted for him accountable for their votes. The truth was there they were just swept up in emotion and the “historic moment” so did not want to see.

Do you believe everything you read on the net? :)

I’m an attractive woman, you should come up and see me somethime.

I would say that, for most people who weren’t aware of Corsi and sites like WND or their level of credibility, they probably wouldn’t have realized just what Obama was up to.

I knew he’d be bad news, just because he’s a Democrat. I even told a left-leaning site that he’d be exactly like Jimmy Carter, only bigger, before I got kicked off that site. But I didn’t know just how destructive he was going to be.

Of course there were. But people today don’t have a living memory of facism and how few it can take to set the whole thing up.

You are right. Anyone who was paying attention, didn't blindly trust the MSM or had average cognitive abilities would have known that Obama was a Marxist. I told that to a guy who came to my door in 2008 for contributions. He looked surprised (but still smug). The people I won't forgive are those who vote for him or let him win again in 2012.

Emotion driven.

That is what the majority of voters are.

The democrat party, of which the media is the right arm, lives and breathes emotional high notes. They have perfected the technique.

A few words above the fold or on the 6 oclock news, and anybody not with them 100% is pure evil.

People are too damn lazy to get up and think for themselves, many forgot how to rub a few neurons together and create a thought.

Glurp glurp, gimmie my 20 bucks an hour for stacking books on the city library shelves, and my 25 days paid each year, and them damn republicans, why they want to take away my health care, my reproductive rights, my buck fifty a gallon gas (all bush cheney's fault, used to be the reaganbush before that, damn oil companies!)

The country is going down the shiite hole and people simply vote themselves another chunk of monies, because there is an endless supply, and them wascally wepublicans want poor folks to starve.

Meanwhile the greatest coup is right on schedule, right in front of the nation's, and the entire world's, eyes.

Blacks vote for the democrat 95% of the time and higher for obama. There’s no reason not to think he will achieve similar numbers this cycle. I do fault anyone who voted for Obama put especially those who did so purely for racial reasons. Whites are told that race should never enter the equation and have to put up with endless diversity training, affirmative action, endless third world immigration, etc but every other minority group is allowed to hold strong racial positions.

I've out grown Drudge. I still go there often and like it, but once you recognize that Drudge is about getting people to form an opinion within 3 seconds of seeing a headline and no particulars, do you really start to build your own political character and connecting dots where the dots belong.

Drudge is a propagandist in the largest sense of the word. He just happens to be on the conservative side. Sure he provides links to actual stories, but really, how many people don't get past the opinion manipulating headline.

A few months back I saw a negative headline about Newt Gingrich, the picture caption showed Newt with his head buried in his hands ad if lamenting. After poking around a bit I proved my suspicions correct -- that the actual picture had nothing to do with the current headline and in fact was a stock photo from some time back.

Does he back Obama or Romney? I don't know. I do think that Drudge is in this for himself and has his own agenda and it's pretty likely that that agenda has to do with his own fame and fortune.

Drudge may have been for the Obama scam in 08 but I think, like many Americans he has wised up. I am not a Romney Man (I support Newt) BUT I will vote ABO—Anybody but Obama. I mean I will vote for anyone but the man in the White House. You name him, I will vote for him—Charlie Sheen, David Duke, Governor Palin, Joe the Plummer, you name it....

The idea that Breitbart had worked for Drudge all those years and at the time had had only two conversations with him is beyond bizarre.

But Drudge swooping in and taking down what others have posted explains the quick removal of certain stories and headlines.

I do.

It means they are racist and also want more free stuff from the people who actually pay taxes.

It appalls me to see and hear these hyphenated Americans. They have more loyalty to some country or culture other than the USA and thus are treasonous.

I am an American FIRST, LAST, and ALWAYS!! For ten years of my career I held the country of my forefathers at risk with nuclear weapons and would have turned keys on them if ordered. I am loyal to the United States of America but these people disdain this country and our Constitution while revering some backwater country or culture elsewhere.

I have no respect whatsoever for any of them as their allegiance is placed elsewhere and not for the greatest, most free country in the history of the world.

Of course drudge is in the tank for obammy, obammys people have made it known to todays journalists that if they write ANYTHING negative about this punk ass magic negro they and their news organization will pay a steep price.
Maybe an IRS audit or worse.
Not that this punk ass marxist would use govt to supress dissent.

How many states have passed voter I’d laws in the last 3 years?

That alone is going to guarentee that 95 percent of blacks will not vote for Obama, even if the same actual percent of the black population votes for Obama.

And many of those states have a higher than average population of blacks.

It’s pretty sickening that Ziegler (who is a POS) makes these accusation relative to Breitbart, when Andrew is not around to defend or confirm.

It’s a BS move on Ziegler’s part.

Alex, Do you think it indoctrination or a combination of the “Give me” mentality and indoctrination? I’m of the belief that it is combination of the two.

LOL, you “redeemed” yourself with this comment.

IMHO, the republicans have NOT provided a ‘decent’ presidential candidate since RR. Certainly not GHWB or Jr, the Compassionate Conservative. The GOP is the only viable alternative to vote AGAINST a democrat, regardless if it is at the Fed, state or local level.

Bush fatigue certainly made it tough on any GOP Presidential candidate, but a vote for any democrat is a vote for socialism.
