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 Trumps 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.

What the Hell, Matt?
This is your brain on drugs ..
Drudge is a jackass.
Sounds like Fake News to me.
Keep in mind this is The Hill.
They are Globalists that do not like President Trump.
Just not as overt as the New York Times or the Washington Post.
And someone tell me what is wrong with licensing all reporters anyway?
I get that we should have a Free Press and all. But name me one other profession that does not license and regulate those who practice it.
Journalists need to be held accountable. But because the majority have gone to the liberal dark side with their lies and fake news - it is high time to reign these creeps in.
Matt is compromised. Owned by the bad guys.
Drudge is mercurial
Only interested in Israel and gay stuff
Conservative on abortion
Hes been anti Trump lately..a turn around
No kidding! Drudge went over to the dark side a long time ago. I stopped visiting his site eons ago. Removed all bookmarks too.
Hey Matt: maybe if mediaheads would just report facts, not feelings or their opinions, they wouldnt have to be called out daily on their failings.
Ever think of that, Matt?
This is a failure of their own making.
The Left wants gun owners to be licensed. I say, let’s license in order of Amendments. See how well that goes over.
Drudge has gone over to the dark side. I have not visited his website in quite sometime.
Said the general, "I admire the principles of independent reporters. I really do. But I don't think our side wants to use our limited resources to protect your independence. A couple of them are going to take your credentials to be embedded on our side and escort you out the door. You can go into town and hire your own driver or escorts to preserve your own independence. Good luck!"

Ditto. The only reason the jackass comes to mind is because he’s mentioned here.
I don’t want licensing of reporters, but it’s high time the white house could kick out some of those leaches.
But just remember it’s a double edge sword.
Drudge , click bate for the Left
I’d like to see Trump kick them out of their West Wing offices.
LASER POINTER OVER HERE MATT..
I think you’re on the wrong site
Pulling and granting White House press credentials is a valid option, well within the President’s authority.
Licensing reporters is completely a totalitarian move, and definitely a First Amendment violation.
See my question in post 5.
WHY don’t you want the licensing of reporters? I’m probably missing something, so please bear with me.
