Vanity: Thursday, Bloody Thursday, The Day the Drudge Report Sold Out ^ | 01/02602012 | Biblebelter

Thursday, Bloody Thursday the Day the Drudge Report Sold Out

It may be the Drudge Report sold out a long time ago and I was just too blind to see it. No one has ever accused me of being the smartest guy in the room.

But if someone of the unwashed masses like myself has come to see that he has sold out, it must be quite clear to everyone.

On this day he is maliciously and brutally battering a Republican candidate for the presidency of the United States by the name of Newton Leroy Gingrich.

I have read the Drudge Report daily ever since he broke the Lewinsky story.

I have NEVER seen him attack anyone with the volume of coverage and with the venom that he has attacked this Gingrich fellow.

He has given President Obama a lot of coverage. That coverage was quite negative, but often it was rather humorous and he seemed to be tweaking him more than attacking him.

Make no mistake, he is not tweaking this Gingrich fellow, it is a constant and brutal battering.

They say the most brutal crimes are often acts of domestic violence.

This fellow Matt Drudge has always been a rather mysterious fellow even before dropping off the airwaves of the Fox News Channel and syndicated radio.

I have seen in those rare times that he has been interviewed that he has associated himself both with conservatism and quite curiously populism. I say quite curiously because today he has revealed himself to be anything but a populist.

He has fully revealed that on this quite bloody Thursday, that he is at heart an elitist who is more than willing to do the bidding of the so-called conservative elite who controls the Republican Party.

It is a quite sad day really. The MSM can be characterized as a media elite because it treats its audience as sheeple. That is what makes an elite, an elite, the elevation of those within the elite above the group at large.

The Drudge Report was not only a founding but leading member of what has been termed the New Media and a member to which most of us looked to as a most welcome alternative to the elitism of old media such as The New York Times, The Washington Post, broadcast news and cable news.

But on this Thursday, this quite bloody Thursday the Drudge Report has sold out by treating its readers as sheeple at what most surely must have been at the behest of the likes of Anne Coulter and all the other conservative media celebrities who so ruthlessly and desperately are attempting to prop up their hand selected sock puppet Mitt Romney by attempting to tear down as well as tear apart Newt Gingrich.

On this Thursday, this quite bloody Thursday, I can only say, et tu Matt.

An article from 2009..........One source relays that, these days, the only media figures he talks to regularly are a select group that includes Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter, and Andrew Breitbart


So what is your point? You're alleging that Drudge is in the tank for .....who?

And that you are alleging that Rush is also in that tank, correct?

Drudge was on the Romney payroll in 2008 and still is for 2012. He may have never come off the payroll, he pulled the same crap in 2008.

I am not sure which of us is more pathetic me or you.

But I think I will admit that I am more pathetic.

You have to have better things to do than play games with me even though I have proven myself more pathetic than you because I keep responding.

I am not alleging anything as much as I am connecting dots.

There is a big world out there beyond this thread.

There are some interesting threads on Free Republic as I type. This is one of them and basically they are connecting the same dots that I am. I am not an original thinker. Lots of posters on this forum are connecting dots whether you want to characterize them as allegations is up to you.

Hey Biblebelter, you do realize that you are posting comments from a leftist website in order to support your argument don't you?

How about this ad from your noted website?

And also note the ad at the top of your webpage..............

Obama friendly

You're really submitting indisputable facts with this website aren't you Biblebelter.........LOL!

Tell you what, there's another website you can access for your facts and it's called Democratic Underground........something tells me you've already been there.

I’ve been with and loved Free Republic and all freepers from the beginning, And I think Drudge too. Matt Drudge was THE the sources of raw, unblemished media intelligence (for some of us) for many years after he broke the Monica Lewinsky story....then everyone would be hanging out on Free Republic and shooting back and forth about all the great stories of that day, many of them having been funneled first through the Drudge Report..
Until I saw this post I thought ..” I’m NOT going crazy, some others are thinking the same way I am”. There have been just TOO many bone headed presentations on the Drudge report for a while now that have gone against my gut instincts.
It seems like Matt has not been as “hands-on” of his site as he used to be. I’ll still go there to check things out, but I’ll be wary and stay alert, because things have seemed “off” a bit lately, not only with the Drudge Report but with other formerly trusted sites as well.
I hope Matt returns to his roots, but commercialism and success may have gotten to him and dulled his quick wit and integrity.

You may be right.

We need to be careful about groups like Log Cabin Republicans. I am not so narrow-minded to think that only social conservatives can be good Republicans, but it would take a great deal for me to trust a homosexual conservative the same way I would, for example, a retired Marine NCO who happens to be an atheist.

Homosexuals had serious trouble getting security clearances not many years ago. There were reasons for that.
