Good idea. I removed Drudge from my Firefox personalized toolbar. Screw ‘em.

You won't last the weekend and Drudge has so many hits that he won't notice.

Foxnews is in the tank for Mittens as well as is most of the other conservative media, are we going to boycott them too?

Sorry, no deal. Drudge is my first look at the news every morning, has been for all to many years and will remain so.

Romney owns STAPLES and JETBLUE with Soros.
ROMNEY is proud of that and boasts at the debates.

DRUDGE advertizes jobview.monster.com

It is time for all conservatives
to BOYCOTT all the above.

I haven’t used Drudge in weeks, as he doesn’t update stories often enough. FR is the place to go. What else does one need? If it happens, it is reported on FR, often by me.

I will not be giving DR anymore hits. Now that the dirty deed is done, the damage done- Newt is trailing in the polls, he wants to go back to the way things were before.

I can’t. I stopped checking Drudge’s site about six years ago. Has he broken any meaningful story since Monica Lewinsky’s blue dress? Or is he just one of hundreds of collections of news site links on the internet?

I am going to wait and see if it was him or the Romney operatives at Drudge. We can decipher this based on whether or not these guys are called-out and reprimanded.

What’s this all about? Negative Newt News? Newt earns every word of it. Do not trust this man under any circumstances. Mitt- no way do I support him either.

I have been with Drudge since he broke the Lewinsky dress scandal. Literally checked in at his page a few times a day...haven’t checked him since Thursday...I am so disappointed with how he has handled this....not going back!

Good evening.

Did you know that Matt Drudge, Lucianne Goldberg, and FR were hanging out together before your screen name was born?

Nothing more than a little perspective...

I am trying to boycott Drudge and FR is helping me in the regard - immensely! It would be helpful to point out alternatives to fill in the gap. I was hitting Drudge 10x a day or more,,,now I am down to 5 or so with plans to quit altogether. I am so disgusted and disappointed with Drudge,,and I’m Irish so,,it’s permanent!

Same here. Already done. I'm beginning to suspect that he rented it out for a couple days, to the Romney machine. I hope the payday was worth the permanent damage.

I’m in.

Actually a few months ago I decided Drudge had gone downhill a lot. Articles seem to stay up longer than they used to, and also there seemed to be quite a few more fluff pieces “deer chases boy” - that kind of thing - than there used to.

Main thing is, though, having just about the whole site vilifying Newt was unprecedented there, and that is from a guy that used to visit the page at least 3 times a day, for a long, long time - since him getting 15M hits a month was a big deal.

omg THIS AGAIN....?!

I have been freeping for well over 10 years —I think I signed up 30 days after FR was born.

I don’t like Romney at all —I want NEWT.

But do people REALIZE how much Drudge has helped us?

Ann was nutty, so they said SCREW ANN —she has helped us a lot also.

And now they want to throw Drudge overboard, too —THIS IS RIDICULOUS.

Trying to find it is one thing, trying to manufacture it is something else entirely. And that seems to be what took place.
