Conservative news aggregator Matt Drudge appears to be telling the world that he no longer owns or operates his flagship website The Drudge Report.
In the bio of his official news feed on Twitter, Drudge describes The Drudge Report as a news aggregation website that he used to run, and suggests it was formerly based in the U.S.
“The DRUDGE REPORT was a U.S. based news aggregation website run by Matt Drudge (@DRUDGE),” the bio reads.
The mysterious change to his Twitter bio comes as several other conservatives try to compete with Drudge with their own news aggregation websites, such as BonginoReport.com, TheLibertyDaily.com, and Gab Trends.
In fact, Drudge actually promoted his competitors last month, noting that they’re “gaining ground” against his website, which is the top news website in the world.
“The Drudge Report is still the king of conservative aggregator websites, but its rivals are gaining ground,” Drudge tweeted.
However, the conservative news icon appeared to criticize former secret service agent Dan Bongino’s news website as boring on Saturday.
“Trust the plan/hope and change the Bongino Report is live. He used to be a secret service agent. [Snooze emoji] Enjoy the show,” he tweeted.
Alex Jones offered several theories regarding Drudge’s odd Twitter bio change.
“Taking Drudge’s tweet at face value, one of three things has happened: Drudge accidentally made two typos in his Twitter bio in the middle of this huge Drudge Report controversy, Matt Drudge has sold the Drudge Report and is cryptically signaling in his mysterious style, or he’s been kidnapped by drooling deep staters who have now stolen his identity,” Jones said.
“But regardless, the ever-reclusive Drudge needs to make a public appearance soon or the suspense will only continue to be hyped, which we know he hates.”

I wonder what the real story is regarding the change the pat few years.
Little late to the party, Infowars.
This has been known and discussed for months.
Word is the Drudge Report was sold three months ago.
Here are some past headlines for you.
1) Drudge sold out to Big Tech! 10/04/19
2) CNN: Drudge Report Moves Away From Trump, This isnt news we already knew this. 10/10/19
3) What happened to the Drudge report? 10/29/19
4) Here’s the REAL REASON why Matt Drudge has become ANTI TRUMP 11/08/19
Most people thought he flipped. Matt sold it.
I have not considered him a conservative for a very long time. As far back as to when it was learned he was homosexual. That’s just not an inherent part of a conservative foundation rests upon, and it never has been.
As far as I know, google bought it and runs it now.
It is no longer ran by Matt Drudge as of 3 months ago.
Like never before, I wonder generally what the real story is.
I searched it last night and at that time it was wholly owned by Mat Sludge.
Who ever bought it can kiss there $$ buh bye
Sounds totally Gay...
Geez .. do a ‘whois’ on his IP addr and see who that’s registered to ..
Here we go again. Take another ride on the Un-Merry-Go-Round.
The Bongino Report is far better than Drudge (Dan Bongino).
Likely sold it some time back with a non disclose, non compete agreement..
What does Drudge get out of this by selling out to Big Tech or Big Media. People are awake now. They’re not going to continue to support an entity that’s going to be the same as most of the media out there.
At this point, Que Sera Sera.
Whatever will be, will be.
Deleted Drudge from my bookmarks...might as well go to cnn...
He probably gets a luxurious early retirement.
