Skip to comments.Why did Drudge pull this link so quick?
Posted on 02/13/2012 4:03:15 PM PST by Former MSM Viewer
Drudge pulled this link after just a few hours, but has others on there all day.
A $10,000 proposed subsidy for Volt buyers is a relevant story.
Is Drudge not a reliable source anymore?
Bring on nat gas for trucks, fleets and one day soon nat gas refueling stations so we can buy nat gas cars...
Drudge blew his credibility the day he dogpiled on Newt. 14 negative stories on Newt at one time and bupkus on anyone else. Yeah, that’s not biased.
A week or so ago Drudge looked down and saw Ø where his testicles used to be.
Let’s see??? Very successful..been around for years....the standard in the industry...
And you say he has crashed and burned because HE did not keep a marginal story up as long as YOU think he should?
Were they all the same stories? Did he write the stories? Are you one of those that think Drudge converted to Mormonism? Do you expect me to believe that you never look at his site anymore?
Drudge is a blogger who posts links to what he is interested in, no more no less.
I was deeeep in denial about the Drudge changes.
I just assumed it was impossible.
This afternoon, Drudge posted a nice photo of Rick Santorum with a headline that said he was surging. But it seems to have disappeared completely, after being up for just an hour or two. Not even moved down the page, but yanked.
I was wondering when I saw that earlier if Drudge had decided to stop shilling for Romney. Evidently not. I’ve never seen him so biased. He has sold out.
You know, it could be as simple as counting the number of hits it was getting and deciding to substitute something else. He does this to drive traffic. It’s his business.
In a related story the City of Manassas, Virginia has purchased a Chevy Volt for a Utilities Department meter technician. The Chevy Volt requires a nightly charge and fill-up of the 10-gallon gas tank once a month if that. The City vehicle maintenance technician has completed installing emergency lighting and radio equipment. (I wonder how that will affect mileage.)
The Volt will run up to 40 miles on a charge and then switches to gasoline. The City is scheduled to install five charging stations throughout the city part of a federal grant award from ChargePoint America, a US Department of Energy program through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
No word on cost or break-even point. I suggest you contact the City of Manassas if you want more information.
“I was wondering when I saw that earlier if Drudge had decided to stop shilling for Romney”
When pigs fly...
I haven’t been back to his site since the attacks on Newt. I’m not pulling for Newt. But Drudge didnt’ have to go after him like that either.
I also haven’t visited dailycaller since their nasty attacks on Sarah Palin....
That fag in the White House needs to propose a $10,000 subsidy for all Ford Mustang buyers. I’d be at the Ford dealer already.
I have not visited Drudge once since the day before he unleashed that cowardly attack on Newt. It’s nice that his site is no longer a habit for me.
“Is Drudge not a reliable source anymore?”
Drudge has gone progressive with rombots running the show. If something was pulled, it very likely is because rombots didn’t like it.
I think Drudge lost credibility when he went after Newt in obvious support for RINO Romney.
That story says 33% hike and I seem to remember Drudge said “doubles”...maybe he needs a correction.
Seeing his lead line I was so mad I did not read the story.
Actually, that was there ALL DAY yesterday (Sunday).
I saw the Santorum story several times too.
There are big financial international news and other stories and pictures there now...maybe just a lot coming in at once...we’ll see if he puts the Volt story back up...
I pulled the plug on Drudge several weeks ago. “He’s just a guy who posts things that interest him.” I’m not too interested in his interest any more.
I haven’t looked at Drudge in years. FR is all I really need.
Drudge is full of crapo. Site is a parttime effort. No news night or weekend. Hasn’t done anything since Clinton left.
I deleted Drudge from my bookmarks a couple of weeks ago and I am proud to say that I am Drudge Free! Don’t miss his sorry a$$ one bit.
Drudge has his own agenda.
More or less like MSNBC.
The unemployed/unemployable Hispanic copper thieves will have them stripped by the end of the month.
I think most of Sunday was dominated by the drug/alcohol death story, although I’m not sure when it was changed.
Drudge sometimes refreshes itself, if you stay there for a while. But if not, you need to refresh it yourself to see the new layout. I’m not sure about the timing at this point, but I don’t think the Santorum story, with the photo of him in a cowboy hat, was up very long.
Thought Barry said he wasn’t interested in running a car company.
Also will the government give me a new house if my volt burns it down?
At the rate that Baraq’s EPA is effecting the shutdown of refineries, we may need those e-cars.
Of course Baraq’s EPA is also effecting the shutdown of coal powered generating plants.
Maybe next he’ll subsidize Chinese bicycles.
I likewise have sharply curtailed my visits to Drudge since bloody Thursday ... after visiting Matt at least twice a day for the last decade ... Honestly, I think Axelrod or Sorros (cellphone refuses to let me spell his name) ... have successfully blackmailed Matt ...
Don’t you want it known and documented when all of the stories in the MSM are anti-Newt and there are no anti-Mitt stories to be found? You do know that Drudge didn’t write those anti-Newt stories, right?
I removed Druge’s bookmark. He has ‘jumped the shark’, just like what’s her name: Ann Coulter! I never read anything from her anymore. She can go with Drudge to Romnay’s lovefest all she wants.
