Vanity: Has Ann Coulter Taken Over The Drudge Report?
Drudge Report ^ | 1/24/11 | me

Posted on 01/24/2012 9:36:07 AM PST by jimbo123

I know that Drudge hired Romneybots Joe Curl and Charles Hurt to help him with his election coverage for 2012. But looking at the hysteria going on at the Drudge Report right now, it looks like Ann Coulter has joined Curl and Hurt in running the site. What the heck is going on over there?

Apologies for my first vanity, but I'm perplexed by what is going on with Drudge.

Anne is now the bar wench and manx of the Country Club and I can’t stand the smell of cheap whiskey covered by the presumed ardor of Camel Cigarettes...filterless of course to match that nasty taste coming out of her mouth.

Anne, Babe. Yoos a backstabber and I’m old enough to keep a long memory of those who woo me and then attempt to marginalize me after all I’ve done for you

Bah, you’re just seeing similar hissy-fits because they have two things in common:

1) Totally in the tank for Romney
2) An apparent affinity for homosexual men

My question is will the Romney supporters support Gingrich if he wins or will they continue to criticize him after the primary ends?

I'm perplexed by what is going on with Drudge.

Offhand, I'd say "Slow News Day".

Last night's debate was such a snoozer, that the only headline to come out of it is that the audience wasn't allowed to cheer.

I noticed Drudge waited three days after the AP ran the story on the Georgia court hearing on Obama’s eligibility before running a small blurb about it on the bottom of his page.

My general sense is that more Romney supporters will support Gingrich than Gingrich supporters will support Romney, at least on the grass roots level. I also think that either candidate might be able to close some of the enthusiasm gap by picking a veep that the detractors find appealing. But as with McCain in 2008, it won't necessarily mean a landslide victory.

Yesterday he had links to a Soros story. But if you clicked on them they brought up a very anti-Newt story.

Don’t try to tell me that was an innocent mistake.

Drudge/Curl/Hurt are also linking to sources like the National Journal. My question is how much of this recent hysteria and bias is from Drudge and how much is from Curl and Hurt?

They were an item and always friends. I think there were rumors that Drudge is homosexual. I know the accusations were there about 5 years ago or more. Drudge keeps a very low profile.

I think you’re exactly right. Moreover, I find the attacks on Ann and Drudge to be ridiculous. Let’s just stipulate that it’s ok to have different opinions without being called a “fag” or a “fag hag.”

The Democrats have to pick the candidates for both parties. Follow the money. The Democrats have to win so they can keep robbing the public treasury. And they consider it a good return-on-investment to buy mouthpieces for themselves.

I tend to feel the same way. I always viewed Drudge as an objective and neutral source in the Journalism industry, but every time I go over there now, I see anti Newt and pro Romney articles 24/7.

Ann was on Red Eye this AM. She was a raving loony, about Newt, during Half Time with Andy Levi. He couldn’t wait to get her off the air.

I gave Drudge the benefit of the doubt until yesterday but then clearly saw his bias against Newt. Now I’m hearing he has hired two Romney workers (who are also anti-Sarah) to assist with election coverage.

The future has arrived quicker than I had hoped. The elite ones are closing down news coverage in this country rapidly. I wonder when Drudge sold out for good.

Sad, because I have relied on the Drudge website but will now turn elsewhere for news updates. But...where?

I'm not a Mittbot, if that's what you're asking. But I'm also not a Romney hater. He has pluses and minuses. I'm not a Gingrich hater. He has pluses and minuses. I'm not a Santorum hater. He has pluses and minuses. I'm not a Ron Paul hater. He has pluses and minuses.

Two years ago, on this site, it was utter sacrilege to even suggest that there was the merest possibility that Sarah Palin would not be the 2012 GOP nominee. If anyone offered even the slightest opinion that Sarah might not run, and if she ran she might not win, someone would declare that poster a "Mittbot" and a hell storm of fury would descend upon that poster.

I've been a registered Republican since I was old enough to vote, and my vote in the primary never meant a tinker's damn, because the nomination had always been sewn up by the time I cast my ballot. So I'm in the habit of watching the nomination process unfold without having much say in the outcome.

I noticed that too. I was finally able to get the bottom link to take me to http://www.thedailybeast.com/newsweek/2012/01/22/george-soros-on-the-coming-u-s-class-war.print.html , where I read (among other things) Soros telling what I believe is the democrat game plan, including riots and Obama trying to sell the need to tax the rich. Now I read this morning that Obama’s SOTU address is going to talk about.... (drum roll) the need to tax the rich!

If the puppets obey that command of the master, is there any question whether they will obey the other command Soros gave in that article?

Buckle in; it’s going to be a very bumpy ride.

If I were planing to be a “sleeper” agent, I would be a supporter of my enemy’s cause when it didn’t make a difference, and then having made a reputation for myself over the years, when I could make a difference, I would act in the interest of my true cause. Subtle at first, and more urgently when things got really critical.

Drudge and Ann could be sleepers. It’s possible. Maybe.

If they are, and they are acting desperately, than this means that we are at an important point in the battle, and now is when we have to make our maximum effort.

Just for the record, I do not believe any of the conspiracy theories out there, except for the commie/socialist/parasite conspiracy. That one is certain.

The new Drudge guys Curl and Hurt really seem to hate Sarah (based on their previous articles). And it looks like they’ve instituted a news blackout on her on the Drudge Report. Very sad that Matt Drudge has decided to let Curl and Hurt destroy his website and credibility.

This is what Coulter and Drudge hugely support.

Mitt Romney is Corrupt

I'm suprised that Drudge is becomming part of the establishment, but Ann, well not really.

Drudge has been my Homepage for Firefox for almost a decade... Then I would come to FR after I went through those stories.

I guess I will have to change my Homepage to FR and come directly here. I have been very irritated at the (leftward) slant I’ve noticed it going for the past couple of months.

I think both Ann (gimmeasamitch) and Drudge (iainttoogayamI) are kinda pissed at the fact that their brand of political corespondence is rapidly coming to an end.

Both of their 15 minutes are SO OVER !!!

You're right. I still hear some fervent anti-Newt people railing against O'Donnell to this day. Yet, those same people will never mention the "acceptable" candidates like Linda McMahon or Meg Whitman who also lost.

Someone recently compared the "Mitt Is Most Electable" crowd to the John Kerry supporters in 2004. Their skewed polling and twisted logic told them that Kerry won the election before the votes were even cast. Then, when the votes were actually counted, they screamed fraud.

If you're going to use the "electability" argument, it should be used with someone who actually has a track record of winning elections. And even then, you should take it with a grain of salt.

He understands how businesses and markets work, how wealth is created in the private economy, and how to build organizations. Also, he probably doesn't cheat on his wife.

Doesn't mean I'll vote for him in the primary (which will probably be irrelevant by the time it reaches my state anyway), but it doesn't make me a raving Mittbot to acknowledge his strengths.

I'm where I've always been at. A guy on a message board who shares his observations about topics which interest me.

I don't really care who wins the Republican nomination. But somehow, some people conclude by this that I must care very deeply.

Has Newt been railing against homosexuality or something? (I mean....that would probably explain Ann & Drudge)

I know he has a gay half-sister or something, but I don't recall him going off on the subject.

I think we are all witnessing something we don’t quite grasp, yet. Perhaps a reformulation of the GOP. I personally think at the Presidential level this election has moved beyond republican/democrat. It is about preservation of a financial system whose failings may well become more apparent in the coming months. Therefore, it only matters to Soros, Murdoch, et al except that it preserves their power. These people are concerned about rumblings in the grassroots.

In other words it’s ultimately about money. Desperate people will be doing desperate things. We’ll see soon enough where it all goes and who are the real conservatives.

Why doesn’t someone create a nicely organized front page for Free Republic that can link directly to the articles that get added here? A mod could go through and pick the ones they want to put on the front page. It’s ridiculously easy to create and maintain a page like Drudge’s since it’s not much more than links, but you would need people to keep it updated round the clock. Unless you just wanted it to cycle through all the articles posted here in a routine fashion and weren’t worried about inserting pictures or special fonts. I’m a longtime Drudge reader but I find the collection of articles linked here more useful lately.

Agree. When Drudge and Coulter turn into the types of people they once mocked and scorned, there's definitely something going on behind the scenes. It will be interesting to see how everything plays out.

It’s not just name-calling. Just google Drudge gay and you can see a whole lot of quotes, testimony and supporting evidence on various sites including, if I recall, a gay former Bush admin guy attesting to the fact. It’s long been public knowledge Drudge and Coulter are close friends (discussed on his old radio show for one thing). And there are YouTube videos of Ann talking about her gay friends in great detail and about speaking at gay Republican groups.
