    What exactly has happened to the formerly must-read Drudge Report? It may seem like yesterday to old Washington hands, but it was actually more than a quarter-century ago that a manager of a gift shop in a television network building in greater Hollywood, a 20-something with a thirst for movie star gossip, signaled the end of the establishment media’s chokehold on the American public. He started an amateurishly formatted website featuring links to important but under-the-radar online articles, to go along with his own mysteriously obtained scoops. It was, let us never forget, Matt Drudge who broke the Monica Lewinsky...
  • Drudge hits ‘mute’ on Biden

    The Drudge Report made its name by making life hell for Democrats in the White House. But over the past several months, the website, named after its infamous and enigmatic founder MATT DRUDGE, has continued the surprising trend that emerged during the 2020 presidential campaign: Taking a relatively muted editorial stance on JOE BIDEN. Readers who visited Drudge on the morning of Dec. 10, found a patriotic graphic of Biden splashed against an American flag leading the site. Headlines on that day touted the “lowest jobless claims in 50 years,” “Biden delivering fastest recovery in history?” and quotes from CNBC...

    About a decade ago I’d heard all sorts of rumors about Matt Drudge, many from friends who were in positions to know or at least suspect, and none of them were good. I remember thinking if those rumors were true, and they were proven and exposed, that would do some serious damage to conservatism. Thankfully, it didn’t come to that. Drudge wasn’t destroyed from without, it was destroyed from within, by Matt himself. Thankfully, it happened long after he and his website mattered. I still don’t know if those rumors are true, but Matt Drudge no longer matters. Even the...

    The Drudge Report, that longtime haven for conservative news and wacky headlines on the internet, has gone lamestream, and many conservatives have launched new platforms to replace the gaping hole it has left behind.Even a former editor of the Drudge Report, Joseph Curl, has stepped up to resurrect the Drudge spirit. On Tuesday, Curl announced the launch of Off The Press, a conservative-oriented aggregator that he says will have a “fearless attitude” toward covering “everything for those who devour news all day,” Just the News reported.Curl intends for Off The Press to be a premier, 24/7 news aggregator that consumers...

    The former editor of the Drudge Report, Joseph Curl, announced Tuesday the launch of Off The Press, a conservative-oriented aggregator that he says will have a "fearless attitude" toward covering "everything for those who devour news all day." Curl says the marketplace is ripe for a premier, 24/7 news aggregator that consumers can trust, with the Drudge Report having become just another echo chamber for the mainstream media. "Now more than ever, keeping up with the most important stories is a battle," Curl says. "With social media deluging everyone with endless posts on their news feeds, the internet needs an...

    It’s hard to believe that five years ago, the Drudge Report was a major player in conservative media. Since whatever happened to Matt Drudge happened, the site has been a cesspool of mainstream media propaganda and leftist talking points.Many patriots turned to social media to fill the void with many prominent conservatives posting links to important stories regularly. That’s dead as well as far too many topics are forbidden on Twitter and Facebook. There are social media alternatives that may come around, but so far Gab, Parler, and similar freer speech social sites have not been able to reach a...

    The Drudge Report’s drift from its original Internet rebelliousness took another step into mainstream irrelevance with a purge this week of links to pioneering conservative sites The Gateway Pundit, World Net Daily, Free Republic and Also reportedly gone are links to the late Rush Limbaugh’s site and columnist David Limbaugh. Infowars and ZeroHedge survived the purge, however one report observed ZeroHedge was delisted for a time this week. Last month the Press Gazette reported the Drudge Report lost over forty percent of its traffic year-on-year from February 2020 to February 2021, “Influential conservative news aggregation site the Drudge Report...

    Matt Drudge Logs Off The Drudge Report has become a conformist shadow of its formerly bratty, oppositional self. Why?It was the kind of story that would once have had Matt Drudge deploying font sizes that newspapers used to reserve for declarations of war. On Oct. 14, Twitter and Facebook blocked users from spreading a New York Post article alleging that Hunter Biden had brokered meetings between his father, then the vice president of the United States, and executives at a Ukrainian energy firm where the younger Biden held an $80,000-a-month sinecure. The Post’s article included photos of what appeared to...

    It came as the Fox News Decision Desk projected Saturday that Biden will win the state of Nevada and the commonwealth of Pennsylvania. "I am honored and humbled by the trust the American people have placed in me and in Vice President-elect Harris," Biden said in a statement. "In the face of unprecedented obstacles, a record number of Americans voted. Proving once again, that democracy beats deep in the heart of America." He added: "With the campaign over, it’s time to put the anger and the harsh rhetoric behind us and come together as a nation."

    NY Post ^ | Oct 31 | By Keith J. Kelly
    The Drudge Report posted a 45 percent decline in web traffic in September as the site alienated its core readers by turning against President Trump ahead of the 2020 presidential election. The data — derived from comScore, which tracks the industry — were released in a report by TheRighting, a website that analyzes traffic to right-leaning websites. TheRighting told The Post that the Drudge Report had 1,291,000 unique visitors in September, according to data supplied by comScore, down from 2,340,000 in the same month a year ago. September’s eye-popping decline marks the ninth month in a row that the political...

The Drudge Report alternative Citizen Free Press, which has racked up 75 million page views in October so far, mysteriously disappeared from search results on Bing, Duck Duck Go, and Yahoo on Wednesday. Microsoft told PJ Media that it is working on a “fix” but the mysterious disappearance still raises serious questions. Citizen Free Press raised the alarm on Twitter about an hour after the disappearance.“Attention Bing: Citizen Free Press has completely disappeared from your search results in the past hour,” the secretive one-man operator who goes by “Kane” tweeted. “The link to our...

    What on earth happen to Drudge?!? I’ve been reading his website since I was 15! And this past year I took a break from politics. I know he wasn’t always the most conservative, but I can’t even go on that site now with seeing liberal vomit spewing everywhere. Almost ever main article I see now is just bashing the President!

    VIDEO The Drudge Report attempted to pull off a ridiculous deception to make people think that Kamala Harris won the vice-presidential debate when in reality the poll showed people voted her as the loser by a landslide. What happened is that when the poll was first published on Wednesday night, Mike Pence was leading by about 65%. When I returned to see the latest poll results on Thursday morning, guess what was missing from the poll results? The NAMES. Yes, there were NO NAMES in the results showing the winner (Mike Pence) at about 71%. Even more deceptively, that...

It had 1.4 million unique visitors in August, down 42 percent from a year earlier, according to Comscore data provided by The Righting, which analyzes viewership of right-leaning outlets. Its audience has trailed that of the right-wing sites The Gateway Pundit and Daily Caller. New rivals looking to outdraw the once-fastest news-slinger on the web include Liberty Daily, Rantingly...

    1. Today the Drudge Report has destroyed what little credibility and decency it had left, which wasn’t much.— Mark R. Levin (@marklevinshow) August 24, 2020 2. Its headlining & and promoting the secret taping of a family member by a family member seeking to enrich herself further by exploiting her relationship with the president is bad enough.— Mark R. Levin (@marklevinshow) August 24, 2020 3. But the second headliner involves exploiting the Conways 15 year old daughter, who which is sleazy even by tabloid standards. Come out of the shadows, Matt, and subject yourself to public scrutiny rather than...

    It’s 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...

    It used to be a thrill for conservatives to get “Drudged” – to have their piece linked on the Drudge Report. It meant traffic (which translated into money) and that a large audience would see it. It probably still means those things, only now it means them to progressive writers and websites. Whatever Drudge was, it’s not anymore. You’d be hard-pressed to spot the difference between the Drudge Report and the Huffington Post. Aside from his love of weather porn, Tom Brady, and anything Oprah or transgender-related, you might as well go to CNN. At least with CNN you’re getting...

    Fox News host Tucker Carlson said during his show on Friday that once-conservative news aggregator Matt Drudge of “The Drudge Report” is “now firmly a man of the progressive Left,” noting that his site has taken on a decidedly anti-President Trump bent in recent months... recent months, Carlson continued, the site “has changed dramatically, 180 degrees. Matt Drudge is now firmly a man of the progressive Left.” As such, scores of Drudge’s former conservative readers have now left the site for another rising conservative aggregate, Revolver.News, the Fox News host added. In April, President Trump tweeted that he “gave...
