Drudge Drops Link After Gawker Questions His Sexuality
NY Observer ^ | 5/12/12 | Hunter Walker

Posted on 05/12/2012 8:24:37 AM PDT by jimbo123

Aggregator extraordinaire Matt Drudge briefly linked to Gawker’s story that alleged ABC’s Robin Roberts “wasn’t enthusiastic” about landing her big gay marriage interview with President Obama because she was worried it would call attention to the “near-open secret that Roberts is a lesbian” this afternoon and the site took the opportunity to taunt him with an update.

“Internet behemoth Matt Drudge, who has just directed his readers to this post, is also commonly understood to be gay,” the update said.

Mr. Drudge removed his link to Gawker within a matter of minutes.

So Robin Robins is a lesbo? Not a surprise.

And funny that Drudge has such a thin skin after his never-ending cowardly attacks on Gingrich and Santorum on behalf of Team Mittens.

Toughen up, Drudge.

Drudge is gay? Is anyone not gay? I’m starting to feel like I’m living in “Invasion of the Body Snatchers”.

We already know you’re gay, Drudge - why not at least be a man about it?

Is Drudge homosexual? I know he’s a single male...but unless he says he says he is homosexual, or, is witnessed doing sodomy, how would we know?

Interesting that Gawker would make a seemingly political decision to drive people away from their own story.

I had a suspicion that Drudge’s reasoning for being so massively in the tank for Romney was due to Romney’s history of being the most “pro-gay” candidate.

I’d been a regular visitor to Drudge’s for over twelve years, checking it multiple times per day, ever since I first go hooked onto the internet. But after his outlandish dumping on anyone opposing Romney during the primary season, I stopped going there altogether. Haven’t been back since.

Gawker pays their writers based on the number of clicks the writer gets on his story. So it was a political decision.

But Drudge made a political decision when he turned over control of his website to Matt Rhoades and other Romney operatives.

Drudge has lost almost 750,000 monthly readers to date since his Bloody Thursday hit on Newt, so his anti-Newt and anti-Rick actions in support of Romney have had substantial consequences to his website's traffic.

Well, face it, the culture has fundamentally changed.

At one time, gays were in the closet because of fears of being known as openly gay.

Now, being gay is considered cool. It’s a badge of honor. The liberals consider being gay very special and fabulous in a way.

Yep, it sure seems like the whole word is gay doesn’t it? We talk so much about this subject of homosexuality nowadays.

40 years ago, homosexuality was officially considered a mental condition by the psychiatric profession. Then it was dropped from the list of mental disorders. What was once a mental condition is now celebrated in the popular culture. Unbelieveable....................

Speaking of gay, does anyone else realize that the word “gay” has been completely hijacked by homosexuals?

Look up the word “gay” in an older dictionary, and you will see that the definition has nothing to do with homosexuality.

Have you heard anyone use the word gay using the dictionary definition? Nowadays the word gay means only homosexual, and is never used according to the dictionary definition.

Why did they pick the word gay anyway? To make us believe that homosexuality is a happy carefree lifestyle??????

The pendulum will swing back the other way. The sooner the better. It isn’t “gay”, and even “homosexual” is a word coined by one of them in the latter half of the 19th century to create a sense of special community. Before that word was invented they were called sodomites and pederasts, which are much better words.

They are mentally ill sex perverts and they should STFU and go back in the closet and if they want to seek help, so much the better. Their perversion and mental illness are revolting and destructive and at this point even Caligula would be shocked.

Is there another site one can go to equally as good of format, etc. besides Drudge? Ever since he went heavenly against Newt and totally in the bag for Romney I’ve rarely gone back to his site. Where to go? Suggestions Please!

Who CARES? Good Lord, people, Obama is DESTROYING the Constitution, capitalism, and has declared war on Christianity...

If we can take care of these assaults on our heritage, the sodomy problem will not be difficult to assail.

Let’s not allow Obama to distract us....HE is the one who should be mocked and ridiculed for bringing such a subject into the arena, with all the other big problems we face.

“RealClearPolitics.com.”

I’ll second that. I haven’t been to Drudge in probably 5 years since the time I got a ridiculous virus after clicking some link there.

Instapundit.com done by Glenn Reynolds is good too, but it isn’t comprehensive in any way.

He’s away now, the guest bloggers aren’t doing such a good job this time. I hope he comes back soon, because you know even though he’s got a life I just want him to post links for me at all times.

And of course Free Republic, we’d be lost without it.

I can suggest you go to freerepublic.com

It has a better format, complete content, and references news that is significant, accompanied by most excellent comments, and not so much nonsense as you will find on Drudge.

Give it a try... /s

I like the Daily caller format better than the rightwing news site. The format on the right wing news is too overloaded . I think Drudge’s success is due to his simple format and his selection is just enough that when you go to the page your not overwhelmed with info. Real clear politics’ format is just overloaded with too much. Thank goodness for Free Republic!

I grew up in the ‘50s and being a queer then was definitely not cool and the rump rangers kept themselves in the closet.

And I—and 98 percent of the population—liked it that way.

Besides being an abomination, homosexuality has deprived us of a perfectly good adjective: “gay.”

I think Matt Drudge came out of the closet YEARS ago. I can’t remember, but I think he even put it on his page.

He may just be getting pi$$ed that maroons still try to make an issue of it.

There were 2 “gay” 90’s.

1890-1899 where men were men and women were women and nothing in between. Forgive the pun.

1990-1999 where some men were men and some women were women and everything in between.

The old “gay 90’s” related to a prosperous and happy period of time.

The new “gay 90’s” related to perversion, a blameless society, and a generation that had to “find oneself.”

Man, has life taken a bad turn for the worse...and it will never reverse itself.
