Dear Matt Drudge: Stop the race stories
The Hill ^ | 11/9/2012 | Brent Budowsky

Posted on 11/09/2012 10:01:39 AM PST by Obadiah

Dear Mr. Drudge:

I have written before that, whether I like it or not, you are the one of the most influential forces in modern media, possibly THE most influential single player. You tower above your peers in what you do. Despite my failed efforts, no liberal or Democrat has even tried to create a legitimate competitor to what you do. But with your influence comes power, and with power comes responsibility, and the Drudge Report in recent months has become inundated, and saturated and permeated with baiting stories about the president's race, and about blacks generally. These are beneath the standards you should set for yourself and your profession.

You should be, and I hope you will be, a better citizen and more worthy professional than is suggested by the sheer number of race-related and often race-baiting stories that you regularly banner on the Drudge Report.

Not only that....but using the Bible to justify it! LOL! I just love it when libtards start using the Bible excuse.....having never set foot in a church or defending Christians against discrimination and persecution.

Or Else, what? Not only we enter Obama’s “Patriotic Capitalism”, we will now be forced “Patriotic Journalism”?

Brent, you can KMB.

America has a huge race problem: the ghetto culture. I'm waiting for blacks to wise up and fix that problem.

Drudge references articles elsewhere. This puke tells us all we need to know about how utterly stupid he is.

Looks like a perfect candidate for the black teens' game of Knockout -- maybe forbidding Drudge from warning about the danger is not such a bad idea. . . .

More proof that employees of the MSM are skid marks on Journalism's shorts. Though to be fair at least Mr. Budowsky admits his bias while many other MSM employees do not.

Brent, you sir are an IDIOT!
There is no more racially divisive factor in this country
than the empty chair that occupies our White House.
Matt Drudge links to real, relevant stories.
Obozo is a race-class panderer, and hates White people.
You, and he, can kiss my butt!

“And, so it begins”. This phrase can be applied to so many things after the election and here it means the beginning of the silencing of opposition. The complaint is also out there from the left that Rush should be gotten rid of because he is the reason Republicans lose. First they came for Rush, then they came for Drudge, then they came for me.

The on-line media is the biggest threat that mainstream journalism (and the regime) face. The decline - thus far - of the MSM can be attributed to their leftward slant, and...the internet getting out the truth.

Of course this cucumberhead is down on Drudge, and is too stupid to see that the Drudge Report is only a page full of links. Drudge actually writes very little of what is on the site.

Brent Budowsky aka Bud Brentosky is one of thehill’s notorious prize journ-o-listas. He also bears a strong resemblance to one of the local I-5 bridge dwellers just north of San Juan Capistrano.

I read the entire piece waiting for him to give an example - he never did. If he had then I guess we’d all have said so and so wrote that you sheiskopf. Since he didn’t and we didn’t ge t to, what was his point in the first place?

Maybe he should write all the black gangs, drug dealers, muggers, and flash mobs, instead of Drudge.

All Drudge does is report the news that everyone else busily covers up.

“Dear Matt Drudge, please stop breaking our embargo by writing about race when it could negatively reflect on a particular race. If you insist on telling the truth, it will make us look bad. All races and religions are equal, and behave the same way.”

“Also, would you please not give party affiliation if a Democrat does something humiliating, disgusting, or illegal.”

From Patrick Henry

The questing before [you] is one of awful moment to this country . . . in proportion to the magnitude of the subject [there must] be the freedom of the debate. It is only in this way that [you] can hope to arrive at truth, and fulfill the great responsibility which we hold to God and our country. Should [you] keep back [your] opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offense, [you] should consider [your]self as guilty of treason towards my country, and of an act of disloyalty toward the Majesty of Heaven, which [is] above all earthly kings . . . Are [you] disposed to be of the number of those who, having eyes, see not, and, having ears, hear not, the things which so nearly concern their temporal salvation? . . . whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, [you must be] willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and to provide for it.

Not surprising that Mr. Budowsky, an ultra liberal, is committing treason towards our Country.
