Rush eluded to the same thing today on his show.

Drudgie losing 2m+ hits must've prompted a call to Mark and Rush?

Well, I think Mark is wrong. But there’s a difference between mistaken and malignant, so I’m sure not throwing him under the bus. Mark’s one of the good ones, of that I’m sure.

Mark, go tell your little buddy, that he owes his readers one simple, sincere apology.

He screwed up. Bad.

That's my guess. I went to Drudge and they actually have the article about Elliot Abrams misleading about Newt.

Too bad. Does he mean it? Maybe, maybe not. Can he really be honest? Maybe, maybe not.

Levin dances on the strings of the Powers That Be who control his program and it would appear they pulled the string that makes him say things they want to hear so he keeps his job.

Or, maybe he said exactly what he meant.

Just said that Drudge has done a lot of great things and that he isn’t taking sides. I don’t think there is anything that can be said to justify the position that Drudge is a neutral party.

Levin just turned into a bottom-boy for Drudge !?

Now he`s defending that hysterical menopausal Coulter !?

WTF !?

Listen Mark, we know a pandering propagandist hack when we see one.

Dare insult our intelligence and just watch your listenership drop like Drudge`s website viewers has.

FAIR WARNING

Matt and Mark must have had a little discussion.

No doubt. On Oct 5, 2011 the day Sarah called into Mark's show to announce she is not running, sometime later during his show, Mark alluded to receiving an IM from Matt saying it's a sad day for America (in regards to Sarah not running).

Mark may be stating this for Matt's benefit, but it is apparent Matt is in the bag for Mitt.

Bad choice of words?

I've found the reason Matt likes Mitt...

That answers that. His comment about coordinated attacks on Newt was all a smokescreen to protect book sales.

Looks like they're all establishment frauds.

What “stuff?” On the day of the debate he linked to a 20-year-old video clip that was posted on YouTube in December that basically cut Newt off in mid-sentence and put a false headline on it. That isn’t “news” of any sort. It could be done at any time about any candidate. There’s no excuse for linking to someone’s cheap attempt at propaganda. If he was a real reporter, he would have found the full, unedited video and linked to that instead. Besides, we’re not so much arguing that he’s posting anti-Newt stuff, it’s that he wasn’t posting any negatives on Romney at all. Did he ever link to the DNC ad that clipped Romney as saying “I like being able to fire people?”

There’s only one question left to ask about which side Matt Fudged is taking...top or bottom?

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.”

http://www.mediaite.com/online/ann-coulter-named-honorary-chair-of-goproud/

Ann Coulter Named Honorary Chair Of GOProud

“Ann helped put our organization on the map. Politics is full of the meek, the compromising and the apologists – Ann, like GOProud, is the exact opposite of all of those things. We need more Ann Coulters.”

The board includes some other names you may recognize as well: Margaret Hoover, Grover Norquist, Andrew Breitbart, Liz Mair, Chuck Muth, Lisa De Pasquale, Christian Josi, Roger Stone, Andrew Langer, Kathryn Serkes and Bob Carlstrom. Last year, Coulter was a big draw at GOProud’s first-ever Homocon event in New York City.

The problem with what he said, is not that those were kind words, but that it seems impossible to call them anything but lies on Matt's behalf. Who here thinks that Drudge has been fair or unbiased with his site postings this week?

This is pretty much a case of "it is what it is".

It’s not an organized movement, but I have, and so have many others I know, gone through our contact books, and we are tag teaming Drudge, and sending links of his articles out by email or facebook, so people don’t have to give him a hit on his website... Matt loves quoting his number of hits each month...

Defending Drudge is not a problem, but defending what Drudge has done this week, is a pretty serious problem for his credibility. I honestly find it hard to believe he has jeopardized his program and ratings, for that!

“Mark’s one of the good ones, of that I’m sure.”

Never doubt the power of corruption, and always remember that man’s greatest weakness is his ability to forsake truth in favor of the schemes of his personal life.

All I know is that right now Levin is absolutely trashing Romney care. He just said that Romney doesn’t want to talk about Obamacare but instead wants to focus on Gingrich not being a Reaganite, which he says, it’s absolutely ridiculous.

Whether or not Drudge is taking sides is a question to be determined by watching what Drudge does.

Not by listening to statements made by people who know him personally.

I have been absolutely shocked to the core quite a few times this week, by things people have said and done, who I thought I knew at least to some degree. This might be one of the biggest shocks. Drudge was not taking sides this week? Really?

He is aware of the controversy. He should have the courage of his convictions and not use double-speak dressed up as news bulletins.

Birds of a feather - he is as gutless as Mitt.
