Last week, Trump had a few nice things to say about Drudge, and Drudge prominently posted this on his site.
Trump heaps praise on Drudge Report
So, being a news addict, I've been monitoring Drudge's coverage since the praise, and it sure seems to me that Drudge has lightened up on Trump and started swinging the hammer more the other way. Today's headlines seem overwhelmingly pro-Trump.
I'm hoping Matt has seen the light here. It would be good to have him more objective than he has been in the past.
Of course, I may also be crazy...
Dunno, stopped going there when he started crying about my ad blocker.
No, I’m not turning it off, Matt.
I stopped following Drudge months ago. I still pop on from time to time to see what news the blue pilled fools are following.
I moved on and am not looking back. TheLibertyDaily and CitizenFreePress together are roughly equivalent to Drudge. (and I’ve followed Drudge since Monica Lewinsky.)
He is mostly pro Trump.
He upsets many because he isn’t 100%.
Nope, you’re crazy!
I’ve had a hard time forgiving Drudge since I got the feeling that he “installed” Juan McStain as the Republican nominee back in 2008.
Drudge is a compromised famefag.
Trump calls Drudge a Gentleman -
From a few days back - read the responses - seems a number a freepers nailed it.
Drudge links to FreeRepublic so...
Me and Trump, we’re both nuts:
He also regularly links to vile anti-Trump propaganda such as Yahoo.
Your crazy.Never trust a poofter.He is only tacking right because traffic is down.Liberty daily for me.Check it out
go to above for Drudge vs. ??? contrast.
Drudge is not perfect, but he’s not 100% scum like newsnow or so many others.
Guys, I don’t go to drudge, and rarely ever have, but if I understand his business model, I don’t hold it against him for culling together links to content that don’t strictly fit and specific group’s ideology. For one thing, that would be quite limiting if that wasn’t your primary objective to start with. Secondly, you’ll never make any group happy 100% of the time and your always going to find decent within any particular niche... so if you aren’t catering to that niche to start with, why put yourself into that hole?
You guys spend too much time trying to figure things out
Drudge is an aggregator
I haven’t gone to Drudge in at least 10 years. He doesn’t break any news and FR does a much better job of keeping up with events than he does.
I never read his whole page anymore and don’t spend more than a few seconds there but yes, I’ve noticed a bit more pro Trump in the past week or so. I just do a quick scan of the headline and accompanying top left links. Then I go to liberty daily and check most of that page. Then I come here.
I think Drudge is mainly a click farmer, playing both sides for traffic. He draws his article links from across the political spectrum to increase chatter and traffic.
Personally, he’s seemingly a moderate GOP, with liberal social values due to allegedly being gay. I think he was a never-Trumper for awhile, but may be reconsidering due to Trump’s obvious successes.
No, because he predominately links to leftist propaganda sites.
