    House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes condemned Twitter on Sunday for continuing to apply a layer of censorship on the Drudge Report. Two months after the California Republican raised the alarm about Drudge Report "being censored by Twitter," Nunes again nailed the social media platform for putting up a wall separating users from the top right-leaning news aggregator. "I just looked on Twitter," Nunes said on "Sunday Morning Futures With Maria Bartiromo." "The Drudge Report is being censored today, so for the last three or four days I haven't been able to get on the Drudge Report because it's being...
  • New Drudge Poll Overwhelmingly Supports Firing Mueller

    The Drudge Report, the prolific news aggregation website ran by Matt Drudge, has a new poll that shows its audience favors firing special counsel Robert Mueller and the results are not even close. Currently, 266,943 voters support firing Robert Mueller where as 77,000 voters are against his firing. While the poll cannot be counted as a scientific poll of the general public, it is helpful in gauging where President Donald Trump's base and many conservatives stand on the issue.Drudge's polling in the past was an early indicator of who the GOP Presidential nominee was going to be. For example after a...

  • Whatfinger News: What the Drudge Report Was Meant to Be

    Canada Free Press ^ | 01/17/18 | Selwyn Duke
    Whatfinger is the younger, more vibrant up-and-coming contender who only needs a title shot to hoist the belt. I hope it gets it, too, because the current media status quo has conservatives heading for a knockout. In this anti-establishment age, people are increasingly moving toward anti-establishment news sources. Many good examples exist, but as far as news aggregators go, one stands out: Whatfinger News (Whatfinger.com). That’s right, not the Drudge Report. That titan of news-aggregator traffic loses out because of an area in which it may be without peer: providing eyeballs for left-wing websites. More on that momentarily.

    Throughout the "brouhah" over the Alabama senate race, Drudge has chosen the most unflattering pictures (the gun photo) of Moore and trumpeted the most scurrilous accusations of him to highlight. He is pounding away at him relentlessly.

    The Drudge Report slammed Alabama GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore as "Judge Whore" in an all-caps lead headline Wednesday, putting more pressure on the former judge amid allegations of sexual harassment and assault. The influential online aggregation news site linked in the headline to a Daily Beast story about Breitbart News chief Stephen Bannon, who remains one of Moore's most prominent backers amid mounting Republican criticism.

    Conservative media icon Matt Drudge laced into the Washington Post Monday morning for its preposterous piece suggesting he’s a Russian operative for linking to Russia Today, Sputnik and U.S.-based InfoWars. Newsflash WaPo…Drudge sends you TONS OF TRAFFIC! And the Drudge included a friendly reminder this morning: Drudge reminded his over 500k Twitter followers that Drudge Report gives Washington Post a staggering 37% of its referral traffic.

    By July 2016, according to the analysis site SimilarWeb, Matt Drudge’s link-aggregation site Drudge Report was the second-most-visited on the Internet in the United States. Over the course of the month — the month of the Republican and Democratic presidential conventions and the month of the leak of emails stolen from the Democratic National Committee — SimilarWeb estimates that Drudge had 1,472,220,000 page views. That’s 1.4 billion, the equivalent of 47 views of the Drudge Report every second of every minute that month. Being the second-most-visited site, incidentally, means that Drudge had more page views than Yahoo, Disney (including ABC...

    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.

    In this world we may have knowledge or repose but we may not have both. The human condition is a series of decisions; we either deal with them or circumstances deal with us. Once a bell is rung in our presence we cannot un-ring it. All of these apply to our relationship to the Drudge Report. For years we have looked to Matt Drudge and his Drudge Report as a place where we could get some actual news. During the presidential election cycle last year this was especially true. While the foaming-at-the-mouth liars in the media churned out their disinformation...

    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.

    The Federal Election Commission (FEC) has declined a proposal by Democrat Commissioner Ellen Weintraub to undertake new rulemaking regarding alleged foreign influence in the 2016 election to target conservative media including the Drudge Report and Breitbart News, stating it “cannot support proposals that would burden the free speech rights of American citizens based on incomplete information about foreign activities in the 2016 election.” The FEC has declined to consider new rulemaking over alleged foreign influence in the 2016 presidential election that could target conservative media including InfoWars and Breitbart News.

    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...

    Matt Drudge wondered aloud Thursday evening whether his popular site was the object of a U.S. government cyberattack. Via the Twitter account for his Drudge Report, he said his news-aggregation site is the victim of the “biggest DDoS since site’s inception,” referring to a Distributed Denial of Service attack. “Is the US government attacking DRUDGE REPORT?” he asked, adding that there was “VERY suspicious routing [and timing].” In a later tweet, Mr. Drudge said the “Attacking [was] coming from ‘thousands’ of sources. Of course none of them traceable to Fort Meade,” referring to the Maryland base that houses the headquarters of United...
