Is Drudge in the tank for Obama?
Drudge ^ | Today | Conservativeman55

Posted on 07/27/2008 7:07:38 PM PDT by ConservativeMan55



Drudge is pimping Obama's 9 point national lead.

But I never see Drudge posting about the latest STATE polls.

McCain edges past Obama in Colorado Poll

McCain clobbers Obama in AOL straw poll

In New Mexico, Obama goes from a 9 point lead.. to an 8 point lead.. and now it's down to 5 points.

Obama trip helps McCain. Polls tighten.

McCain now ahead in four key battleground states

Military Veterans favor McCain 56 to 37 percent

McCain gains ground in Minnesota


I heard Drudge may be doing this to gain favor with Obama so he can get scoops if Obama gets elected.

Drudge appears to be throwing Conservatives under the bus.

I wish I had a screenshot of the chick on the SNL skit saying, “Like so many of us in the media, we are totally in the tank for Obama...”

Geraldo is also pimping Obama.

They’re quoting the same poll.

Perhaps Drudge is smart enough to figure out that we might need to get it over with, rather than let the RINOs think they’ve won with McLame and continue their policies.

I can get the screen shot.. but it’s just a picture of Kristen Wiig.

Was there a caption with it too?

Drudge is definately in the tank
Not just with the polls either
I’ve noticed every McCains gaffe gets attention
I’ve noticed every time I go to Drudge, there’s a huge picture of BHO

Stopped Drudge, I couldnt take it anymore.

He always has a huge pic of Obama up.

And every small McCain gaffe or “attack” McCain makes gets attention.

Drudge has changed. The old Drudge would have bucked the MSM.. not gone along with it.

Exactly why I dont like Drudge anymore
The only good thing I got out of Drudge is there was a link to something else (might have been Coulter) which had a link that led to free republic
Now I’m hooked

and it’s my opinion that Drudge has been behind on big stories too.

Unless he himself gets the scoop he’s behind on things by hours sometimes.

Drudge has been a waste of time since shortly before he left his radio show. He’s often late or last to post a headline that’s already been covered here or elsewhere. He also fails to cover headlines at all that he would have covered in the past.

Drudge has changed, but not for the better.

Great minds think alike!

People got used to looking at Drudge for the “scoops” and now he never has any.

He’s often hours behind. People just automatically check it now. It’s out of habit rather than actually thinking he’s going to have something.

Nahhh..Drudge posted how all of the anchors went with the Obamessiah and only one reporter showed up for McCain at NH.

When even the Cracked News Network is having segments on how much the coverage is unfair, its time to stop trying to put the the proverbial elephant (or donkey in this case), under the rug.

I think he’s hoping to get more scoops from the MSM.

The old Drudge would have found it out without their help.

By using the MSM he is actually going along with their agenda.

Drudge is still mad at McCain for opposing homo adoptions.

I stopped reading his page forever ago.

About 30 seconds before I posted it. Completely made up. If Drudge truly is a pillow-biter, though, it's only a matter of time before he goes the Andrew Sullivan route. There's no such thing as a "gay" conservative.

Don’t click on Drudge Report and don’t watch Fox News, that’s easy. They are all turning out for Barry Hussein Obama.

This from the Wikipedia article on Drudge:

“Drudge’s critics, like gay American writer and national talk radio host Michelangelo Signorile,[26][27] point to the allegations of homosexuality levelled at Drudge himself by David Brock of Media Matters in his memoir Blinded by the Right,[28][29] and by columnist Jeannette Walls in her book Dish.[30][31][32][33] However, Drudge denied Walls’s claim that he is gay, telling the Miami New Times in 2001 that “I go to straight bars, I go to gay bars. [Walls] never said there was sex; she said there was dating. She never had enough to go that far.”[34]”

Draw your own inferences.

I always take everything from Media Matters with a grain of salt..

But.. at the same time.. the allegation has been made.

Well, there you have it. He is a homosexual by own admission.

When you go on record to say that you visit gay bars that’s more confirmation than bunch of rumors on the internet.

And yes, Drudge is supporting Obama.

Good point. Many of the hits Drudge gets are from MSM reporters looking for a story.

I haven’t visited his site in months. Why would I? I get teh same thing here, but with reasonable commentary?

it doesn't matter if MD is gay or not.....he's done fine work to expose a lot of crap in Washington over the last 10 yrs and he got me to FR many years ago.....

I don't go to Drudge as much as I used to but ya got to admit, he boosted FR to great heights when he listed FR on his page....I think he also used to post here.....
