    Drudge Report chief Matt Drudge criticized President Trump on Wednesday for his threat to take away credentials from news outlets. “I fear the future result of Trump’s crusade on ‘fake news’ will be a licensing of all reporters,” said Drudge, who typically deletes his tweets shortly after posting them. "The mop up on this issue is going to be excruciating," he added. Drudge, who is largely supportive of the president, added that Senate Democrats had floated such an idea before Trump was president.

The poll comes after Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe over the findings of an internal review that said he provided unauthorized information to the press and was...

    On Drudge Now: Retrospective, Remember When Monica Lewinsky Blamed Bill Clinton Instead of Matt Drudge? The Internet Does.In Lewinsky's warped (or calculated) view of her time in the limelight, she was the world's first victim of "cyberbullying" and Drudge the first perpetrator. Thought Reform, as the Chinese call it--I don't know what the jargon was used by brainwashing technicians in the Stalinist Show Trials--has so long pervaded public discourse, that it's as natural as breathing air. Monica's grief-resolution is typical, helpless victims can't ultimately blame the winners, The Clintons, so they blame the troublemaker who originally highlighted the putrid pustulent...

    Political content on the internet, paid or not, should face substantial federal regulation to eliminate undefined "disinformation," and users of platforms and news feeds, from Facebook, to Twitter, to the Drudge Report and even New York Times, could be punished for sharing "fake news" from those sites, the former Democratic chair of the FEC is urging.In a broad proposal that adds threatening libel suits to regulatory plans already pushed by Democrats on the Federal Election Commission, ex-chair Ann Ravel believes that there is support for expanded regulation in the wake of reports foreign governments spent $100,000 on 2016 political ads...
