Skip to comments.Citizen Free Press, breaking away from other alt-Drudge sites
Posted on 08/10/2020 8:02:03 AM PDT by Beave Meister
Its a news website run out of a house in Bloomington, Indiana, by a secretive internet whiz who had a bit part in the classic Middle America movie Breaking Away. A mention of Citizen Free Press often brings a shrug even in news-hungry Washington.
But overnight, the site that calls itself an alternative to the once-conservative Drudge Report has shot past competitors and is now poised to dominate the right-leaning media space.
"It's fantastic. I love it. I'm breaking every rule in the modern digital news business with no social media, no Facebook, no branding, no email, and the site is succeeding beyond my wildest dreams, said the one-man operator who goes by Kane."
According to the web traffic counter SimilarWeb, he recorded 6.35 million visits and 45 million page views last month. Thats just a sliver of Drudges numbers, but it puts Citizen Free Press in the top of conservative news sites for page views. Plus, visitors stay a remarkable 17 minutes. And it happened during a period when CFP was briefly knocked off Google.
The shift by the Drudge Report from seemingly conservative, pro-President Trump, to anti-Trump, has opened the door to several conservative news aggregators to grow, and Citizen Free Press has jumped the furthest fastest.

Bloomington, IN? Wow..
LOVE the film Breaking Away!
Citizen Free Press and The Liberty Daily make Drudge unnecessary.
If I’m not mistaking the guy who runs the CFP site and goes by the moniker “Kane” use to work for Lou Dobbs...I don’t remember where I saw that.
so what part did he have in Breaking Away?
There are a couple of newer conservative sites to use now.
Of the newer ones I’ve seen, CFP is among the best.
It is the least hysterical, more adult ones. It has a simple and clear format, not a lot of pop ups if any.
One of the other new sites was selling T-Shirts saying:
“Ghislaine Maxwell Didn’t Kill Herself” as a “joke”. I thought that was in very poor taste, seeing as she’s still alive. I even left a comment to them about it. Rather irresponsible just to make a T-Shirt sale.
Have you tried www.rantingly.com? ... its now my go to replacing drudge, after checking out others
it where I go now instead of Drudge
No mention of the REAL conservative powerhouse: FreeRepublic?
I also go to The Liberty Daily
Thanks for the suggestion. I’ll try it out.
“LOVE the film Breaking Away!”
“Refund, Refund, are you crazy, Refund, Refund....Refund...”
“There’s that Itey music again....”
The guy who played Dave’s used-car salesman father was great, incredibly funny!
And, Barbra Barrie, who played Dave’s mom was wonderful...
That movie was more Hoosier than “Hoosiers”...both great flicks!
ping for later
Citizen Free Press is the first website I go to when I get online. It’s great.
