Napolitano: The Drudge Report is not credible
Washington Examiner ^ | April 18, 2013 | Charlie Spiering

Posted on 04/18/2013 9:30:29 AM PDT by WXRGina

During a House hearing this morning, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano criticized the Drudge Report for highlighting stories about the department’s purchases of ammunition and MRAP (mine-resistant, ambush protected) vehicles.

U.S. Rep. Jeff Duncan, R-S.C., questioned Napolitano about the reports from Forbes magazine and other stories linked on the Drudge Report.

“You know, when Forbes magazine or Drudge or some reputable news sources start to repeat the numbers … the numbers cease to become Internet rumors, and they start having some credibility,” Duncan said questioning the “long delay” from the DHS to clarify the numbers.

“I will tell you we found it so inherently unbelievable that statements would be made, it was hard to ascribe credibility to them,” Napolitano said, suppressing a bemused smile. “I don’t know if I’d put Forbes and Drudge in the same sentence.”

This is real simple. DHS can just tell us what they’re buying.

Heck, its our money.

Just publish a list of what has been bought, and what was paid for it.

Simple.

Great. I did a title search, and it came up empty. Guess I just need to manually look through each column next time.

How interesting it is for Pig Sis to fling accusations about credibility.

She ain’t credible at what she was appointed for. Or believable for anything she says.

Funny- Drudge has no editorials or original content at all, only links to other sites.

So, who’s not credible?

If the Judge has said this, I’d believe him but since it came from Madam Bulldyke, forget about it.

be afraid. be very afraid that the head of DHS doesn’t know that Drudge is an aggregator. What else doesn’t she know?
