New York (CNN Business)President Donald Trump, facing an ever-deepening scandal that threatens to swallow his presidency, appears to have lost a key ally in conservative media: The Drudge Report.
The narrative-setting news aggregation website, founded in 1995 by Matt Drudge, has spotlighted an overwhelming amount of negative news for the Trump White House in the last several weeks. It's marked a major shift from how the outlet had previously covered the President.
"He's reacting to changing circumstances," a person close to the media mogul, who said Drudge had grown exasperated with Trump, told CNN Business.

Bernie Sanders, an influential leader amongst conservatives, sours on Trump as impeachment looms.
Wow, outrageous headlines are easy to write.
WAS. Drudge is a has-been. BTW, has CNN been reading FR or was it a CNN reporter who was here snooping/posting?
It’s factual. Read the headlines for the last few weeks.
We know where Drudge stands. We DON’T need CNN to tell us. Why post such stuff?
I know the folks at CNN are a bit slow, but isn’t this news over 3 years old?
His website sucks too.
As Andrew Breitbart would’ve said, “So?”
Influential? Meaning someone who created a web site simply linking to other web sites?
I remember Matt Drudge...from two decades ago.
Is he still around?
Yes it is at least to anyone paying attention. I do not read Drudge anymore.
No, there was a big change as of late.
He has soured on Trump from day uno. It isnt factual, its slight of hand. Its like saying Bernie has soured on Trump.
Drudge was ALWAYS against Trump. It’s strange because Trump hasn’t really done anything to the gay community.
The "influential figure in conservative media" part is Fake.
It’s not Drudge’s consolidator any more...he has a minority share, and sold out to Google. This is known. So this is “rubber stamping” of the “changed Drudge support”... that..... ISN’T true. It is Google’s Report, no longer Drudge’s , and he can’t say a thing about it for the sale to remain.
All Drudge all the time, the Drudge daily update ?
Turns out Drudge sold out to Google very quietly sometime back.
Drudge has sold out. I don’t mean that he sold out conservatives, I mean that he literally sold the website and is no longer involved with it.
I read this here FR a few days ago.
“he has a minority share, and sold out to Google” What is your source for that statement?
