14...Yes...14 Anti-Newt Stories on Drudge Right Now
Drudge Report ^ | 1-26-2012

Posted on 01/26/2012 11:56:41 AM PST by My Favorite Headache

So much for Matt being fair and balanced and showing just headlines and stories others will not...no...he has 14 stories front and center all anti-Newt right now.

No excuse for this...not even ABC/NBC/CBS have 14 anti-Newt stories on their front page.

Bias? What bias?

Conservatives can trust about nobody in media today and this proves exactly why.

That’s why freerepublic is so important. Who needs Drudge when you can all the news here?

They really have jumped the shark. Ann, Matt - any others?

The volume of traffic he gets in comparison? I love FR to death...been here since 99...but Matt’s site speaks to hundreds of millions world wide.

There has to be some angle to this...

Can it be that Drudge-et-al WANT Newt to be the nominee, so they do this anti-newt onslaught, knowing full well it will “backfire”, thus producing Newt as the nominee?

If so, “Rove (and Drudge and Ann and Christie and Christ and...), you magnificent Bastard(s)”

A popular rumor is that Drudge is a homo. Not sure if that is true, but if so, it could be a motive since Romney is pro-homo.

Could it be the chance to put the first governor to pre-side over state-sanctioned gay marriage in the White House where he can appoint Supreme Court justices, the only method possible that gay marriage will ever be made legal nationwide?

http://gawker.com/5200009/drudge-i-do-not-love-sex-with-men

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.”

I couldn't articulate it without sounding like a lunatic, and I'm not sure even Newt could avoid sounding paranoid and crazy, but it sure would be interesting if, during the debate, Newt came out and said:

"Do you all see what is happening? Everyone who threatens Romney as the GOP nominee is suddenly attacked and destroyed. Do you see how many stories came out this week against me? And why? Where are the stories about Mitt? About Obama? They aren't there. But any Republican who threatens the establishment -- Sarah Palin, Michelle Bachmann, Herman Cain, Rick Perry, now me -- as we rise up, powerful forces appear and slap us down. Do you people understand how lost our country is? This society is controlled by the powerful, and they don't care about We The People. Do you see how far we've drifted? Your vote barely counts. After 2012, it may not count at all. But you can still stop this. It's not completely too late."

And then announce Sarah Palin as his VP.

Look... If this is the kind of thing that sways people - if they can’t see this for what it is - then that says it all.

I’ve often wondered about people who - in this day in age - have to go listen to campaign speeches out on the stump to be able to make a decision about who they are going to vote for. The same goes for people who can be swayed by political ads. To me it’s a huge indictment. Call it the great unwashed or the ignorant masses. Both work as well.

There really is no excuse for this level of ignorance today. Most homes have internet access these days for god sake. It’s not like you’re living out in the frontier back in the 1700’s.

How can anybody with half a brain say they are undecided up until the eve of a vote?

I’m going to throw something out. Knowing Drudge, I think there may be a method to his madness. Pulling the band-aid off quickly.

The fact is all this stuff is out there and was going to come out sometime. Florida seems to be a firewall primary for several candidates.

What if Drudge and others are dumping all this stuff early so Newt can deal with it at once and then, when the next primary comes up in five days, this is considered ‘old news’ and already has been addressed.

The alternative would be releasing it one day before the primary where there isn’t a chance to respond...

...or....

Trickling it out (like they did the Cain bimbos) so that every week it is ‘something new’ and the story is always a new issue.

IF I were a campaign adviser and I knew this stuff was out there, I would consider just ripping the band-aid off early, getting it out there, addressing it, and thus, removing the ammo from being used later.

Control the news cycle.

A couple days ago, a friend mentioned that Drudge was so blatantly for Romney and anti-Newt. I told her she was wrong, that Drudge was just posting what was in the news. Today, I had to admit she was right and I was wrong. It happens sometimes! LOL!

Yes, it’s really strange. What’s up with that?

I kinda stopped going to Drudge a while back for some reason but today, it was like a total nuclear attack.

He and Ann Coulter really hate Newt. Don’t know why.

Suddenly Rush Limbaugh and Drudge seem to be reveling in getting in the face of conservatives, they are mocking conservatives for some reason.

Romney is a destroyer, and we are seeing it now as he is destroying conservatism and the GOP.

Isn't Drudge just a link to the top stories of the day? I know he selects them, but every newspaper etc. has these stories.

Don't you think that all this is overkill? I truly think people are tired of all these attacks.

Actually, and I may be strange here, but the more he is attacked the more I know he must be the strongest candidate. They didn't attack Romney, the only other person they've attacked with such vitriol is Sarah Palin...and it was because they feared her. They have a terrible fear of Newt, I don't pretend to know why, maybe he has a lot of scores to settle...it is the DC way you know.

Rush was very much defending Newt today. Guess you didn’t listen.

He mentioned all the attacks on Newt suddenly coming out and he was as bewildered about it as we all are.

He was active in politics back in the Reagan era and never, ever heard anything negative about Newt against Reagan.

He also mentioned that Nancy Reagan and Michael Reagan both liked Newt. In fact, Michael has endorsed him.

Something weird is happening. Rush doesn’t know. I don’t know. Does anyone?

This whole attack Newt thing is not sitting well with me. I feel like if everyone in the old GOP is against Newt, I should be supporting him. I do want someone to BRING IT to the statists.

Why oh why can’t I get behind Newt, though? I really want to. The enemy of my enemies is my friend, right? But I am still scared of Newt as Pres. I know he could whip Obama’s tush. After that, I wince at Newt at the head of our government...

I hear you, but I think we would be okay with Newt as president.

He can be ‘out there’ but basically he’s intelligent and conservative.

And if we can support him with more conservatives in the congress, including taking control of the Senate, I think he’ll be fine.

The clip about Newt bashing Reagan is a total fraud. It has been seriously edited to make it appear that way. Matt Drudge knows this. He is dishonest, really. The clip if seen is about Newt supporting Reagan. Drudge is a jerk with an agenda.
