Skip to comments.SENATE WARNS EMPLOYEES TO AVOID THE DRUDGE REPORT (Drudge)
Posted on 03/09/2010 6:42:27 AM PST by Evil Slayer
Just as the healthcare drama in the capitol reaches a grand finale, congressional officials are warning employees to avoid the DRUDGE REPORT!
The Senate's Committee on Environment and Public Works issued an urgent email late Monday claiming the DRUDGE REPORT is 'responsible for the many viruses popping up throughout the Senate.'
The committee ordered hill staff: 'Try to avoid' the DRUDGE REPORT 'for now'.
On Monday DRUDGE served over 29 million pages with NOT ONE email complaint received about 'pop ups', or the site serving 'viruses'.
The site was seen 149,967 times since March 1st from users at senate.gov and 244,347 times at house.gov. [10,825 visits from the White House, eop.gov]
The Systems Administrator may want to continue taking her antibiotic until the prescription runs out.

No viruses here.
Reminds me of one group of snotty noses on the playground warning about a certain select few to avoid for fear of cooties. Yeah, that’s the mentality of DC right now.
truth = a virus....
Please don’t think of oranges for the next two and a half hours. Just anything BUT oranges.
1st Amendment BUMP!
Filthy Harry Reid was probably torqued off at that continued headline story about ‘Only 36,000 lost their jobs today - Harry Reid’, and Drudge NEVER posts a picture of Nazi Pelosi that is not highly UNcomplimentary, as she so rightly deserves.
Hope Matt Drudge is watching his back, it would not be out of the realm of possibility for those 0bamunist thugs to take him out to meet Jimmy Hoffa sometime.
HUMMM, the Government is now spreading Propaganda against WEB SITES?
Or are they warning about a coming attack on Drudge. Smelly as a Fish Market.
LOL! This is a sure fire way for Drudge to get even more hits on his site. What a bunch of buffoons.
‘responsible for the many viruses popping up throughout the Senate.’
Now that is a perfect discription!
These suffering from it need to have a cranal-rectalotomy, some like Charles Schumer it is terminal and their is no cure....
Incompetents in the Senate. The retards should resign to group homes.
Viruses such as 'The Idea Of Freedom', 'The Concept Of Accountabilty', 'Sanity', and 'Actual News'.
You know, those sort of viruses.
Well, hell! They avoid the ‘We The People’ as it is. What utter buffoons.
"'Skin me, Brer Fox,' sez Brer Rabbit, sezee, 'snatch out my eyeballs, t'ar out my yeras by de roots, en cut off my legs,' sezee, 'but do please, Brer Fox, don't fling me in dat brier-patch,' sezee."
I am reminded of the movie, “Blast from the Past”, where Brendan Frasier’s character, Adam, is warned by his Father to avoid the Adult Book Stores because of “invisible poison gas”!
Trying....really hard....not to think of......AAARGH!
When I was in high school, one Friday afternoon the head cheerleader announced on the PA that all students were commanded to come to an assembly the last hour of the day. The library and classrooms were unusually full the last hour of the day with students who opted instead to spend their time studying. I didn’t know that head cheerleader was now working for the senate....
Yours is certainly the comment of the day.
Well, they did not say “COMPUTER” viruses.
They tried this once before.
If this warning isn’t based upon evidence, then Drudge should sue.
Amazing how Democrat politicians publicly attack private citizens.
Wow, he really does look like Rahm Emanuel.
Wow. They’re really desperate, aren’t they?
Get rid of the crap from Microsoft and virus' vanish.
Whatever you do, don't touch the red button!
Obama admin is worst ever in history of presidency! Drudge only pulls up things from other news sources. So he ads his own comments...
I read Drudge 3-4 times a day. First thing I pull up on my p.c. every morning.
It would appear that I did not pick up a virus.....
Barbara Boxer chairs that committee. She had to have authorized this. Drudge must have been really, really bugging her lately. Our future: tinpot members of Congress telling us what we can and can’t read when it comes to POLITICAL COVERAGE.
Oh and don’t listen to that Rush Limbaugh either.
That reminds me of my second grade teacher telling the kids not to tell the parents about something....
Since Drudge does nothing more than present news from other sources, are the Dems recommending avoiding all “unpleasant” news from their staffs? This will really sharpen their grip on reality.
I think it has A LOT to do with Drudge’s coverage of Rahmbo’s ‘shower scene’ yesterday. It was an EPIC day for Drudge. LOL! They don’t like it ONE bit.
Back in the 90’s the Drudge Report sent me to FR and I’ve been stuck with it ever since.
Bawahahahahaha LOL Oh they know what we the people are thinking LOL they know very very well, and they are not listening!
The White House, House of Reps, and the Senate KNOW how much we don’t want this, and they are DOING IT ANYWAY!!!!!!!!!
FIRE THEM ALL! AND ALL THE CONGRESSIONAL STAFFERS AS WELL!
No, I didn't click on anything but got out, did a virus scan, rebooted and then did a Spybot scan. A couple minor things came up on Spybot but overall a clean bill of health.
I think I dodged a bullet by NOT clicking on that window to "fix" the problem.
I envision a a committee of sub-basement located, loser, safety patrol sissyboys and super smart no sense of humor girls charged with keeping those with 1/2 of a working brain cell away from conservative talk radio or web sites.
“What about Drudge?”
“They don’t know anything about pop-up blockers. We can tell them a pop-up is a virus. Yeah, that works. Send it to the Senate and the word will spread from there.”
“This job is too easy. It is almost criminal to get paid for this. BTW, we need to spread some more about Massa. People are looking into Hikel’s (American ex-pat in Canada) associations. A few preliminary dots are being connected.”
And don’t watch Fox News, especially Glenn Beck! Viruses, you know.
This is so stupid. By warning them not to go to drudges’s site, more will do so. It’s like telling someone “Dont get a mental picture of .....
I guess senator reid believes he is a dictator like obama.
Goebbels used to write long treatises explaining WHY it was forbidden to listen to foreign radio broadcasts, even if you were a loyal Party member.
The more things change, the more they remain the same...
since this is the senate, and this is OBVIOUSLY A LIE, Drudge has a first amendment cause of action.
Paging the two-live-crew lawyer....
Rahm doesn’t have anything to do with how the Senate is run. I still think that, given her chairmanship, Drudge offended Queen Barbara somehow and her loyal committee staff flunkies did this.
So the government tells us not to worry about China’s cyber snooping because they’re our friends. But Drudge should be avoided. WOW!
