    Drudge Report founder Matt Drudge, who knows of what he speaks, dropped a bomb Thursday with the newsy prediction that CNN chief Jeff Zucker is doomed. "Jeff Zucker out either way at CNN," Drudge wrote before adding, "primetime ratings abysmal. Feud with President Trump too personal and ridiculous ..." [Snip] The problem for last-place CNN, though, is that it has actual competition in the form of MSNBC and Fox, both of which are shellacking The Least Trustws Name In News in every conceivable metric. Moreover, when compared to the same month last year, CNN’s October 2017 ratings collapsed a whopping...

    This was not an anomaly. Drudge has for years used his site as a web traffic pipeline for Russian propaganda sites, directing his massive audience to nearly 400 stories from RT.com and fellow Russian-government-run English-language news sites SputnikNews.com and TASS.com since the beginning of 2012, according to a Media Matters review. Those numbers spiked in 2016, when Drudge collectively linked to the three sites 122 times.
  • Drudge Dumps Trump After Charlottesville Riots and Deadly Racist Attack

    The Gateway Pundit ^ | August 12, 2017 | Jim Hoft
    It’s been a little over 200 days since Donald Trump was sworn in as president. The president has been under a constant media assault since he first stepped into the Oval Office. The media attacks have been constant, brutal and often fictitious. But it now looks like he has lost Matt Drudge. The Drudge Report headline on Saturday reads: “Make America Hate Again”. Obviously, Drudge is pushing responsibility for Saturday’s race riots and deadly assault on President Trump. It took six months for President Trump to lose his most influential supporter. This is a very sad development.

    After Trump’s dismissal of FBI Director James Comey, leaks started flooding out of the White House. Some White House staffers appear to be intentionally trying to destroy the Trump presidency by repeatedly leaking damaging information. Axios reported that a White House official told them in reference to the removal of Comey, “it’s insane. The whole thing is just insane.” Josh Dawsey a Politico reporter was told by a White House staffer, “Total and complete chaos — even by our standards.”

    Matt Drudge, the editor of the highly influential Drudge Report, visited Michael Savage’s San Francisco-based national radio show in-studio Friday to celebrate the talk host’s 75th birthday. After sharing Chinese food with Savage, Drudge got behind “The Savage Nation” mic and took a couple of calls, declaring, “We’re trying to save this young Trump administration.” “I do think there is a crisis, on many fronts,” Drudge said. “Is some of it of his own making?” image: http://www.wnd.com/files/2017/03/trump-savage-1.jpg President Trump and Michael Savage at the president's Mar-a-Lago Club in Florida Feb. 18.

    Business Insider ^ | Oliver Darcy
    The Drudge Report, the highly trafficked conservative news website, has been knocked offline for extended periods of time over the course of the last two weeks, succumbing to large distributed denial of service attacks, according to its founder, Matt Drudge. And it's a mystery who's behind it all. Drudge wrote on Twitter that a December 30 attack was the "biggest DDoS since [the] site's inception." A DDoS attack is executed by using hijacked computers or electronic devices to flood a website with redundant requests, aiming to overload the website's hosting server and render it unavailable.

    The popular right-leaning web portal, The Drudge Report, was briefly knocked offline last week. Incidents like this will only become more common until policymakers or tech companies get serious about fixing connected gadgets, also known as the internet of things (IoT). In a since deleted post, the site’s verified @DRUDGE account on Twitter posted last week, “Is the US government attacking DRUDGE REPORT? Biggest DDoS since site’s inception. VERY suspicious routing [and timing],” as the International Business Times reported.... Traffic from the Drudge Report is gigantic. ...178 million visits in November and that almost 80 percent of that traffic was...

    Carl Bernstein talks the power of the Drudge Report and the influence the eponymous editor had in the Republican primary race during a CNN panel discussion about Roger Ailes and the future of FOX News. Bernstein said FOX has driven Trump's candidacy less than Matt Drudge and called the website "an influence unequalled." "One of the interesting things we've seen in this campaign is, FOX has driven Trump's candidacy less than Matt Drudge," the legendary journalist said Wednesday on CNN. "Drudge is really great new factor in this election in terms of media. He is -- Drudge, that site has...

    Glenn Beck once again blasted critics of his full-throated defense of Facebook – this time by calling out Matt Drudge of the Drudge Report for being biased against Hillary Clinton. Beck has been attacking Facebook’s conservative critics ever since the damage control meeting he and 16 other conservatives had with Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg last week following reports from several Facebook whistleblowers that the site’s news curators actively suppress conservative stories in their “trending” news section while simultaneously boosting the signal of leftwing causes like Black Lives Matter. Beck, who has become Zuckerberg’s staunchest defender on the right, took to...

  • Only 6% Trust Media, But It Should Be Less

    04/19/2016 7:02:49 PM PDT · by Beave Meister · 8 replies
    First Amendment: More information travels faster to more consumers than ever before. So why does a new survey show trust in media at rock bottom? Because so much more accurate information is available elsewhere. When Matt Drudge in early 1998 broke the story of President Bill Clinton’s indiscretions in the Oval Office study with Monica Lewinsky, it was the dawn of a new era in news reporting. Woodward and Bernstein seemed like the hip, new faces of journalism when they came along in the early 1970s and helped bring down a president. But although no one ever made a movie...

    Matt Drudge has the stones to fight Hillary Clinton. Where are Ted Cruz and Donald Trump in the battle that matters most? Rather than coming out on the attack against Matt Drudge, Senator Ted Cruz should endeavor to be more like him. Conservative to the core, feisty at heart and relentlessly independent. That’s Matt Drudge, and that’s why untold millions go daily to the Drudge Report. “I need no traffic from Google. I don’t care if I get one traffic referral from Google or Bing or Yahoo or any of these others… Everybody’s so hungry for referrals, for likes. I...
