Yeah, you can count me among those people who no longer go to the Drudge Report for daily news.

I don’t know when it happened, but I think Matt decided that the role of his website is to be the “loyal opposition” to whoever’s in power.  Obama as POTUS?  Run links to anti-Obama events.  Trump as POTUS?  Ditto.

Or maybe, as a homosexual man, he believed the propaganda that Trump was going to set up gulags for fairies, hence his change of attitude.

That’s fine, I suppose.  Trouble is, I just couldn’t be less interested about another anti-Trump news outlet:  we’ve got plenty enough already with CNN-CBS-MSNBC-ABC-NBC-NYT-WaPo etc.  So like many, I’ve switched to WhatFinger News for my news jollies.  To be honest, I prefer the old Drudge Report because he always showed both sides of the aisle — but he doesn’t anymore.

Hell, I go to Insty more often than any of them, really.

  1. You are right Kim that there are plenty of other sources to cover the anti-Trump news. Drudge had a corner on the market but his move left has reduced his hits by 20% or more. I thought maybe he sold the site but I have not seen any reporting addressing this.

  2. Drudge was my homepage since I think 911. I always thought he was a pretty straight shooter on news, and rarely linked to anything obviously false unless it was with a sarcastic lead. The change was slow but it is all never Trump crap all the time now. Sad. The money must have gone to his head or the desire to be one of the cool kids at parties, duno.

    Changed my homepage many months ago to https://pjmedia.com/instapundit/

  3. Drudge was my go to page first thing every morning until, it was not. Maybe over a year ago I realized how annoyed it was making me with the Trump hate so one day, it was delete bookmark, so long and that was that.

  4. I’ve also deleted my Drudge bookmark. This reminds me of when Little Green Footballs suddenly became a leftist echo chamber. Both sites were daily stops on the internet for me; now I see no reason to visit either.

  5. Drudge recently signed on with a Google affiliated company, Granite Cubed, now with the corporate remame Voranda, which purchased his father’s website, RefDesk, as part of the deal.

    This is all to satisfy his new advertising agency.

    I tried Whatfinger, but I can’t get past the page design. It’s like 1995 all over again.
