Skip to comments.Three reasons the Drudge Report is awful

There was a time when I got much of my news from the Drudge Report. It seemed to be conservative, and while it also liked to mix in conspiracy theories, Hollywood news, and an unhealthy dominance of Tom Brady fan stories, it generally got the stories right.
Today, the news aggregator is nothing like it once was. Today, its doing three things that should make America-loving patriots absolutely furious.
Drudge spends more time on mayor Pete Buttplug than any thing else.
I used to read it every day. Not now. It is not the same. What happened?
Gee, I wonder why?
We’ll, that makes sense. One puto looking out for the other
Don’t forget that sex robots that feel like the real thing....
It has been maybe 4 years since I last visited the Drudge Report. IMHO he has become a lefty.
Drudge went over to the dark side during the Kenyanesian Usurpation.
Drudge does nothing different than he has always done.
He puts up stories he thinks people will read.
He loved Trump until Trump actually got elected. Month or three later, he turned.
I still glance at the page just for the headline. I spend about 1 1/2 seconds on the page just because it’s still the fastest way to find out if anything really big is going on.
- Contrary to popular belief, its not conservative
- They love mainstream media sources
- The site is quietly becoming anti-Trump
Looking for hits and revenue like everyone else. The internet is Fake.
Meh - I used to be a zealot Fox News viewer too.
I haven’t really looked at it since it was “Drudge Report 2000.”
I’m sure no one is forcing you to read the Druge Report and equally sure he could care less what people think of it. The site has made Drudge a wealthy many doing things his way so why would he change?
People need to stop looking for confirmation of their own beliefs from online media. They are all businesses and it is undeniable that you can make more money if you at least try to serve the total market rather than restricting yourself to half or so of it.
The same goes for radio and TV talkers, political pundits, and Ann Coulter.
I don’t see him as anti-Trump but he is no Trump cheerleader either. Drudge has never been a die-hard conservative and just gathers news. One of the Drudge headlines right now is “Trump supporters line up 40 hours before Orlando rally”.
There are also alternatives to Drudge that copy what he does. IMO it is good to get news for a variety of sources.
I’ve never read the Druge report? Have you?
Three reasons? Well, he’s got those three right (except Drudge isn’t “quietly” becoming anti-Trump, he’s almost rabidly anti-Trump and has been for a long time) and they caused me to almost completely give up on him. But the final intolerable straw for me was when almost all his links began to take me to some kind of clickbait site. No. Thank. You.
