  • What Happened To Drudge?

    12/03/2019 4:30:36 AM PST · by Kaslin · 85 replies ^ | December 3, 2019 | Derek Hunter
    It’s one of the questions you’re not supposed to ask in public but everyone talks about in private: What’s going on with Matt Drudge? For conservatives, the Drudge Report was a one-stop shop for news on the Internet starting in the late 1990s. When Matt first broke the scandal involving the President of the United States and an intern, his place at the top of alternative media, as it was called then, was secured. As always, imitators followed. But none came close to combing as many news outlets and boiling down the essence of stories like Drudge. That was his...

    Conservative commentator and frequent Fox News contributor Dan Bongino is launching a news aggregator called "Bongino Report," as a competing alternative to the popular Drudge Report, the Daily Caller reported. Bongino made several tweets promoting his new project on Wednesday, saying "Tired of Drudge? Get ready, the Bongino Report is almost ready for launch," and, "Drudge has abandoned you. I NEVER will." He added later, "We will be featuring exclusively conservative and libertarian content. In other words, real news. Don't miss the Bongino Report, coming very soon." [snip]

    At the end of his podcast today, Dan Bongino announced he is going to create a conservative news site to directly take on Drudge Report do to Drudge's rampant anti-Trump, anti-conservative bias... He acknowledged it will probably not have a giant impact, but he wanted to create a REAL news space for conservatives, that is free of CNN, WAPO, NYT garbage articles. Good news!!!!

    For the past week The Drudge Report has posted screaming headlines pushing President Trump’s impeachment! At the same time Drudge has ignored President Trump’s 50% Rasmussen approval rating — 5 points higher than Barack Obama at the same time in his presidency. This downward spiral has been happening since 2017. In May 2017 at his peak, the Drudge Report had over one billion views! In July the Drudge Report dropped below 800,000,000 views. That’s a drop of 200,000,000 million monthly readers!

    CNN ^ | Updated 8:27 PM ET, Wed October 9, 2019 | Oliver Darcy, CNN Business
    New York (CNN Business)President Donald Trump, facing an ever-deepening scandal that threatens to swallow his presidency, appears to have lost a key ally in conservative media: The Drudge Report. The narrative-setting news aggregation website, founded in 1995 by Matt Drudge, has spotlighted an overwhelming amount of negative news for the Trump White House in the last several weeks. It's marked a major shift from how the outlet had previously covered the President. "He's reacting to changing circumstances," a person close to the media mogul, who said Drudge had grown exasperated with Trump, told CNN Business.

    Dear Ann and Matt, Please Come Back! There were only a handful of Trump supporters that helped carry the Donald Trump candidacy into the White House. Matt Drudge, the iconic founder of the Drudge Report, and best selling author and speaker Ann Coulter, were two key individuals who pushed Trump over the finish line. Since the election, these two leaders have gone missing. What happened? Matt Drudge Wikipedia, which is far-left when it comes to politics, reports that the Drudge Report was created by Matt Drudge in 1995. His first assistant was Andrew Breitbart, who created and ran conservative website...

  • Ann Coulter: Trump ‘Will Fold’ on Border Wall

    Ann Coulter, perhaps the most vocal Trump supporter pushing for a wall on the southern border, said on Wednesday the president will cave on his demand for a wall. In an interview with radio host Mark Simone, Coulter noted, “the president and I have had a little tiff.” She continued: “For one thing, he actually did shut down the government — though don’t worry, he will fold in the end.” Coulter decried the president last month after the senate passed a continuing resolution to stave off a government shutdown that didn’t allocate funding for a border wall. Trump reversed course...

    Drudge Report chief Matt Drudge criticized President Trump on Wednesday for his threat to take away credentials from news outlets. “I fear the future result of Trump’s crusade on ‘fake news’ will be a licensing of all reporters,” said Drudge, who typically deletes his tweets shortly after posting them. "The mop up on this issue is going to be excruciating," he added. Drudge, who is largely supportive of the president, added that Senate Democrats had floated such an idea before Trump was president.

    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 and fellow Russian-government-run English-language news sites and 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.
