    A report that looks at where online news readers go for their daily scoops shows Matt Drudge, who operates the popular headline aggregation site that's a must-read for many of both political camps, is gaining big on massive media organizations like NBC and even CNN. The latter, specifically, might want to take notice. CNN has spent the last few years loudly proclaiming its dominance in the news market, even as competitors like Fox News - and now, Drudge - have gained steam. MediaPost, in its "10 Publishers Account for Half of All Online News," cited SimilarWeb and found "the top...

The headline on the Drudge Report read, “Fed Gov’t Training Foreign Workers for English-Speaking Jobs.”Mills forwarded Hammer’s email,which included a press guidance and draft statement, to Clinton as an “Fyi.”In another email, this one from Dec. 2011, Hammer...

    In a major step towards global centralization of election processes, the world's dominant Internet voting company has purchased the USA's dominant election results reporting company. When you view your local or state election results on the Internet, on portals which often appear to be owned by the county elections division, in over 525 US jurisdictions you are actually redirected to a private corporate site controlled by SOE software, which operates under the name ClarityElections.com. The good news is that this firm promptly reports precinct-level detail in downloadable spreadsheet format. As reported by BlackBoxVoting.org in 2008, the bad news is that...

    Is it just me or do others wonder what the Drudge Report is up to? It seems like so many headlines and stories are more Hollywood BS and other unimportant things, than any relevant information that concerned people would care about.

One of the first sites (also Free Republic) I go to is Drudge, but unfortunately it is not usually not very important.

    While 97 percent of scientists may agree mankind is driving global warming, 97 percent of Americans don’t seem to care about the issue when stacked up against other concerns such as terrorism or the economy, according to a recent Fox News poll. A November Fox News poll of more than 1,000 registered voters found that only 3 percent listed "climate change" as the most important issue facing the country today, down from 5 percent in August. Americans were much more worried about terrorism, the economy and immigration than global warming.

The media giant’s tweet on Tuesday alludes to something far more sinister. Major media outlets covered the ineptitude of Obama’s U.S.-trained rebels in early November, but there was no evidence he purposefully sent weapons to terror networks determined to attack America....

    In President Obama’s hometown of Chicago on Halloween night Saturday, a robbery was thwarted when a concealed carry permit holder with a valid firearm owner’s ID card under Illinois law shot the thug dead. It showed that even in Obama’s Chicago, more guns mean less crime and, in this case, one less career criminal. It also shows that opponents’ fears that concealed carry laws will mean carnage in the streets as garden-variety disputes escalate into a proverbial gunfight at the OK Corral are false. Since the U.S. 7th Court of appeals struck down Illinois’ ban on concealed carry as unconstitutional...

So far, Mr. Rather has spent more than $2 million of his own money on the suit. And according to documents filed recently in court, he may be getting something for his money.

    The crashing and burning of the once-promising Scott Walker for president campaign is very illustrative of a major media dynamic in conservative politics.
