Drudge hit job on Newt continues
http://www.drudgereport.com ^

Posted on 01/25/2012 9:06:32 AM PST by AskNotReceiveNot

I open my browser this morning and what do I find?

"RUBIO RIPS TEAM GINGRICH" glaring across the front of Drudge Report... one of many negative headlines/stories related to Newt.

So I guess the hit job continues. As others have pointed out, the bias he's displaying is obvious and sickening. Wonder what the reason behind this is?

Newt kick his dog? Reject his advances?

Here are the Romneybots that Drudge hired earlier in the year. The both of them are destroying Drudge's site and reputation.


Joe Curl

Yes, it’s been a hit job ever since Newt’s first surge in the polls back in November December time frame. Every misleading headline, every un flattering picture, everything he can do - it’s really amazing that Drudge would risk his reputation for this. What kind of hatred he must have.

The more the GOP establishment rips Newt, the stronger his support will grow. They honestly don’t have a clue that this primary is a referendum on their timid stupidity.

Drudge may be a Romneybot, but it does appear that the headline is pretty accurate.

And frankly, I think Rubio is right about this. The race has turned into each of them trying to see who can burn down the other's house fastest. As much as I don't like Romney, I'd still vote for him in a heartbeat over Obama.

Of course, this crud was all started by Romney in Iowa. But at this point, there are enough substantive differences between these two guys on legitimate issues that they don't need to do this bloodletting, and it is damaging our chances of taking down Obama in November.

One of those guys needs to pick up the phone, call the other, and call a truce on the personal shots.

I always felt that way when Governor Perry was Drudge’s headline. Especially when the headline was just something said by former talk-show host Herman Cain. I never got much comfort or support for my dismay. Everyone seemed to feel as though candidates are fair game. Not having a dog in this particular hunt, I’ve come to believe that too. I’m glad I’m finally on the side of fairness.

If this latest "hit job" on Newt is anywhere near as effective of his last "hit job" of outing the ABC News interview of his ex- just before the South Carolina debate, then Newt will not even have to wait until Super Tuesday to have the nomination effectively sewn up.

It may not be Drudge's intention, but Newt owes him big time.

For those who didn't click on the underlying link, here's what it said, in part:

Sen. Marco Rubio scolded Newt Gingrich’s presidential campaign over a Spanish-language radio ad that accuses rival Mitt Romney of being “anti-immigrant”

“This kind of language is more than just unfortunate. It’s inaccurate, inflammatory, and doesn’t belong in this campaign,” Rubio told The Miami Herald when asked about the ad.

“The truth is that neither of these two men is anti-immigrant,” Rubio said. “Both are pro-legal immigration and both have positive messages that play well in the Hispanic community.”

Read more here: http://miamiherald.typepad.com/nakedpolitics/2012/01/rubio-scolds-gingrich-camp-says-ad-bashing-anti-immigrant-romney-is-inaccurate-inflammatory.html#storylink=cpy

Again, I'd much rather be hearing Rubio's positive spin on the GOP candidates as being "pro-legal immigration" and having a "positive messages that play well in the hispanic community."

I'm pro-Gingrich, but I turned off the debate when he and Mitt started trading charges about Fannie Mae, making lots of money, etc. It made me sick to my stomach, and the left has to be jumping for joy over this circular firing squad.

Rumor is that Ann Coulter is writing or contributing greatly to The Drudge site. Makes sense to me if you look at his post over the past couple weeks.

Four months ago, Ann C couldn’t say or do anything wrong in my eyes, now her message is shrill and worn. I despise what she’s doing and what she’s become.

I would say that I’m angry, but the anger then would be addressed to me for being so naive and stupid for buying her audio books, and believing that the woman was one of us.

She’s a phony and manipulator for her own personal gain. Newt has taken positions that mirror what Ann Coulter has been saying for years. He’s the first politician in my lifetime is actually smarter than the media and the pundits.

Each time he speaks it’s a teaching moment.

Here’s another person rooting for Romney... it’s Newt himself:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tjYOunt5y-o

Newt condemns Romney for not being humanistic regarding deported illegals. I guess we can count on Newt for being humanistic to them. Thanks, Newt, for telling us your new stance on illegal immigration.

I can't believe Drudge has Joe Curl working for him. Unreal. Here's a recent sample of Curl's white-hot Gingrich-hate:

Anyone who knows Newt Gingrich knows that Newt Gingrich is — and always has been — all about Newt Gingrich. Newt Gingrich doesn’t give a damn about the Republican Party. And Newt Gingrich sure doesn’t care about ousting President Obama, unless he’s doing the ousting. If Newt Gingrich can’t be the nominee, then Newt Gingrich will burn the whole place to the ground.

That’s a damn good question. The only thing that could make this race any worse is a Draft John McCain movement.

300+ million people and we can’t find one suitable candidate.

I hate this election. Hate it.

It's best for everyone that Newt get hit hard now, not later in the general election. If he is sufficiently strong and agile, he will overcome the angry press against him and emerge totally vetted and ready for Obama.

I don’t think Drudge is big Newt fan, but I don’t think he is on the establishment bandwagon on the issue. I just think he’s just relaying the GOP establishment’s nonsense when they put it out there. If Drudge wanted to go after Gingrich, there’s ton of material out there that he could rehash every single day, if he chose to do so.

I knew Drudge wasn’t a Gingrich fan not by the first story I read about him on his site, but by the pictures he was posting of him. Granted Newt probably wouldn’t win any “beauty” contests, but really, Drudge seems to find the worst pictures possible. With Romney all that’s missing is the halo above his head.

There’s only one possible explanation and that is that “fab hag” GOProud mascot Ann’oying Coulter and her BFF Sludge want the Supreme Court to instill gay marriage. Mitt Romney gave the nation the gift of gay marriage in Taxachusetts. He’s no doubt guaranteed both of them he will appoint Supreme Court justices who will extend it to the entire nation in exchange for their shilling.

Since Drudge is not reporting all the news that’s fit to print, let’s start reposting these facts about Drudge and make sure everyone gets the word.

http://www.lauraingrahamsucks.com/tag/david-brock/

And he also tells about how Ingraham and Ann Coulter fixed him up on a “blind date” with another gay journalist, Matt Drudge. Brock said he wanted to keep the friendship with Drudge platonic, but that Drudge showed up in his little red compact car with a dozen roses for Brock!

They went to another gay club where Brock saw someone he found attractive and interesting, but Drudge stepped on the guy’s feet and told him to back off. Brock said Drudge was “a scary date.”

http://askville.amazon.com/Matt-Drudge-openly-homosexual/AnswerViewer.do?requestId=61870008

columnist Jeannette Walls in her book Dish. Walls wrote that Drudge had a long homosexual relationship with Washington D.C. landscaper, David Cohen. Cohen confirmed the relationship to the New York Daily News. Drudge denies 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.”

[Alec] Baldwin claimed, during a Howard Stern interview, that Drudge had propositioned him. In March 2008, Baldwin repeated the story to the LGBT magazine The Advocate, saying that there was “a kind of creepy quality” to Drudge’s sexual advances, and that he was surprised Drudge was so “uptight about being gay”.

Ann Coulter Named GOProud’s “Gay Icon,” Will Serve as Council Chair

Wed Aug. 10, 2011 9:18 AM PDT

Ann Coulter has been tapped as the honorary chair for the advisory council of GOProud, a national advocacy organization for staunchly conservative LGBT individuals.

Coulter has enthusiastically accepted the honorary position, and that her official title on the council will be “Gay Icon”:

MSNBC, CNN, and NBC should no longer be seen as the true enemies of this forum.

They are simply preaching to the liberal choir and cannot really do that much damage to conservatives.

But Faux News, Ann Coulter, Drudge, Beck, and Limbaugh are the true enemies of this forum as they are enemies of everyone who believes like Reagan that true conservativism is a populist movement not an ideology owned and dictated by elitists of the highest order.

Newt has done a great service, he is forcing the question does the heart and soul of conservatism rest with the rank in file or is conservatism without a heart and soul and the property of the elitists and their hand picked hand puppet Mitt Romney.

Drudge: ‘I Do Not Love Sex With Men’

4/6/2009

Drudge has never been said to particularly relish his homosexuality or embrace it; in fact his gay romantic/sexual side has been described (when alleged) as conflicted and awkward.

David Brock, the former right-wing writer, wrote in his memoir Blinded by the Right about a “scary” date in which Drudge, after bringing Brock flowers and navigating the Santa Monica gay strip “like a pro,” stepped on a competing suitor’s foot “really hard” (in Drudge’s purported words) in a nightclub to scare him away from Brock.

Alec Baldwin stated that Drudge made an advance on him in an ABC Studios hallway, a proposition that had “kind of a creepy quality to it.”

Drudge denied he was gay to the Miami New Times in 2001, even as he launched into a disquisition on (as the New Times put it) “the reigning DJ king of gay circuit parties” and summarized his nightlife thusly: “I go to straight bars, I go to gay bars.”
