    Something has changed at Drudge Report, the influential site known for its tabloid-poetry headlines and conservative take on the news, and don’t think the president hasn’t noticed. --snip-- The site has perhaps paid a price for jumping off the Trump train. It had 1.4 million unique visitors in August, down 42 percent from a year earlier, according to Comscore data provided by The Righting, which analyzes viewership of right-leaning outlets. Its audience has trailed that of the right-wing sites The Gateway Pundit and Daily Caller. New rivals looking to outdraw the once-fastest news-slinger on the web include Liberty Daily, Rantingly...
  • Matt Drudge rumored to be seeking investors for Drudge Report

    Matt Drudge is the latest media mogul rumored to be looking for a cash infusion in the form of a partial sale of his popular news website Drudge Report. The juicy tidbit bounced around this week from the financial world to the publishing world, reaching both high-level executives and humble reporters and editors, including this columnist. Matthew Lysiak, author of “The Drudge Revolution,” says he, too, has heard the rumors, but brushed them off as just that. “I think the rumor that Matt would sell or has already sold the Drudge Report is completely unfounded. I know he is continuing...

    The Drudge Report’s apparent decision to cater content to a political demographic that has zero overlap with his audience of two decades hasn’t been going well for the site. While I’m surprised he’s not down 100%, Drudge has hemorrhaged nearly half of his audience over the past year. --snip-- Comscore data also put Drudge’s viewers at 1.488 million unique visitors in July, down 38% from July of 2019. About a year ago, in August 2019, the site was posting “well over 100 million” readers. The site’s recent numbers mark a steep 40% decline year over year. They also mark Drudge’s...

    Donald Trump made his displeasure with Matt Drudge known on Monday morning via his favorite mode of communicating and for disseminating presidential fiats: He tapped out a tweet that blasted Drudge — an early Trump champion whose eponymous news aggregation site was an original safe space for the president’s supporters — for being “a confused MESS.” Trumplandia has moved on from him, Trump’s tweet continued, after the president over the weekend had already accused the original master of clickbait of no longer being “hot.” -snip-- “The biggest change at the Drudge Report has been in page views,” Lysiak told me....

    DB Daily Update ^ | David Blackmon
    It’s no secret that the Drudge Report has now gone over to the dark side of American politics and become just another corrupt propaganda site for the Democrat Party and the American Left. Matt Drudge, whose site became famous as the Internet maverick that outed Bill Clinton’s affair with Monica Lewinsky, is a famed Trump hater, along with his best buddy, Ann Coulter. Drudge began tilting his news aggregation service towards the Left shortly after President Trump’s inauguration. Though I have not seen them confirmed, rumors have flown for months that Drudge in fact sold out, and entered into lucrative...

    President Donald Trump slammed Matt Drudge and his Drudge Report Sunday and Monday, and while it’s subjective to argue whether the right-leaning news aggregator has moved away from positive Trump stories, one thing is true: Drudge’s readership is down a whopping 38% from last year. According to Comscore data, the Drudge Report had 1.488 million unique visitors in July 2020 — the most recent month for which data is available. That’s down 38.0% from July 2019, when the site boasted 2.399 million unique visitors. Remarking on a post that said the Drudge Report had seen a “historic crash,” the president...

    President Trump for a second day in row aimed criticism at Matt Drudge and The Drudge Report on Monday, claiming all of his supporters had abandoned the pioneering conservative news aggregator. “Our people have all left Drudge. He is a confused MESS, has no clue what happened,” Trump tweeted Monday. “Down 51%. @DRUDGE They like REVOLVER and others!” It was unclear what the 51 percent figure referenced, but on Sunday Trump tweeted a blog post claiming traffic to The Drudge Report had declined 40 percent.

    I am what you would graciously call a website traffic geek. I have looked at Matt Drudge’s actual traffic numbers, on Quantcast, every week for the past 12 years. Quantcast is a slice of javascript code you install in the header of your website and it counts every page view and visitor. It functions almost exactly the same as Google Analytics. Matt Drudge used to average 1 billion page views per month, as he famously used to brag. Remember those headlines from 2016 — ‘Thanks a billion!’ He ran that same headline every 30 days for the entire year. Now...

    Not even massive street riots, hordes of lawless vagrants burning cities throughout the United States and a dead-heat presidential election could help Matt Drudge’s spiraling news site in August. The fall has been dramatic and historic, but also one predicted in mid 2019 by Thomas Paine. Web numbers for the country’s biggest Joe Biden cheerleader just got worse for Matt Drudge’s spiraling news site in June. Drudge’s monthly traffic in August was 63 million readers, according to analytics, down from 66 million in May. The spiral continues. In September 2019 Drudge was pulling close to 95 million readers and...

    Vice President Pence said Tuesday that he doesn’t “recall” being told to be on “standby” when President Trump made an unannounced visit to Walter Reed Medical Center last year. “I don’t recall being told to be on standby,” Pence told Fox News’s Bret Baier when pressed on an account included in a new book from New York Times correspondent Michael Schmidt. “I was informed that the president had a doctor’s appointment.” “I’ve got to tell you, part of this job is you’re always on standby. You’re vice president of the United States,” Pence continued. “The American people can be confident...
  • Donald Trump slams Matt Drudge for reporting on claims he had a mini-stroke and was dragging his leg and demands CNN FIRE Democratic pundit for asking about his health as White House doctor denies he had brain injury

    President Donald Trump slammed Matt Drudge for his website, the Drudge Report, leading with the story of how the president denied he had a 'mini-stroke' that links readers to a video where Trump is purportedly dragging his right leg. 'Drudge didn't support me in 2016, and I hear he doesn't support me now. Maybe that's why he is doing poorly,' Trump tweeted Tuesday evening. 'His Fake News report on Mini-Strokes is incorrect. Possibly thinking about himself, of the other party's "candidate,"' Trump wrote. Trump's comments on Drudge came after his campaign demanded that CNN fire Democratic pundit Joe Lockhart, who...

    The Post Millennial ^ | September 1, 2020 7:16 PM | Mia Cathell
    In the latest slew of "mini-stroke" hit pieces against the president, the once-conservative Drudge Report titled its headlining story, "Trump Denies Mini-Stroke Sent Him To Hospital." The news aggregation site sourced a CNN video of President Donald Trump allegedly dragging his right leg while touring a North Carolina laboratory back in July. Trump on Tuesday denied the leftist spin that he suffered "a series of mini-strokes" prompting an unscheduled visit to Walter Reed hospital in November 2019. Trump's physician, Dr. Sean Conley, even cleared his health record in a statement, affirming that Trump is "fit to execute the duties of...

Both the Falwells denied that Jerry Falwell had been involved in the affair during a Tuesday interview with the Washington Post following news that Jerry Falwell resigned as president of Liberty University.

    1. Today the Drudge Report has destroyed what little credibility and decency it had left, which wasn’t much.— Mark R. Levin (@marklevinshow) August 24, 2020 2. Its headlining & and promoting the secret taping of a family member by a family member seeking to enrich herself further by exploiting her relationship with the president is bad enough.— Mark R. Levin (@marklevinshow) August 24, 2020 3. But the second headliner involves exploiting the Conways 15 year old daughter, who which is sleazy even by tabloid standards.

    It’s a news website run out of a house in Bloomington, Indiana, by a secretive internet whiz who had a bit part in the classic Middle America movie Breaking Away. A mention of Citizen Free Press often brings a shrug even in news-hungry Washington. But overnight, the site that calls itself an alternative to the once-conservative Drudge Report has shot past competitors and is now poised to dominate the right-leaning media space. "It's fantastic. I love it. I'm breaking every rule in the modern digital news business with no social media, no Facebook, no branding, no email, and the site...
