Has Drudge Report Joined Fake News?

Can anyone explain why Drudge has been publishing news to discourage the nation?

To me it looks the same as the Demonrat practice of suppressing conservative turnout at elections by publishing falsified poles.

Dr. Eowyn has recently been plugging the alternative news aggregator, Wharfinger.com, as a better resource than Drudge. And considering headlines like the ones highlighted above, I must agree with her.

I would love to hear from Dr. Eowyn and our readers what has happened to Drudge. As I tried to search out the subject on Google it seemed there was a stunning silence on the subject.

Dr. Eowyn, thank you in advance for weighing in on the subject.

Am I seeing things correctly, or am I just whining because I don’t like bad news? Looking forward to what others have to say on this.

TrailDust:

Those Drudge headlines aren’t new. Matt Drudge has been doing that ever since Trump’s inauguration, which is why I had long stopped reading Drudge Report and using it as a source for news, and why I recommend Whatfinger instead.

Some months ago, before WordPress took us down, I raised this issue — that Drudge Report has ceased being conservative. I even did a search online and found other websites saying the same thing. A longtime FOTM reader took issue with that and became so incensed that he was verbally abusive.

Matt Drudge appeared on Alex Jones over two years ago, and he told Alex then that he was told, by a Supreme Court Justice earlier that, “Matt, it’s over for you,” and he went on with his explanation of the threat of censorship then. This was before Trump won the election. So has Drudge sold out? It very well could be. But Drudge does have this on his side: He is reporting headlines—gathering them and passing them on. He does not fabricate the headlines. I’ve tried Whatfinger and I like the layout. I also bookmarked Canon 212 and Conservative Angle,… Read more »

And in another two words, “911 coverup,” the truth of which would delegitimize our ME wars and enthrallment to Israel tomorrow, and maybe even lead to exposure of the true fixers of our elections and thieves of our military and commercial secrets. It’s just too bad some of America’s pseudo-Christians called CUFI’s enjoy swallowing Drudge because he confirms their biases and sanctions their worship at the feet of a new Moloch, charmingly renamed GWOT, who’s busy cremating women and children in Arab countries because, as Dubya put it, these “terrace” hate us for our freedoms such as the Patriot Act,… Read more »

WOW! Your post is truly super, loaded with insights and intelligent analysis. I’ve been following your comments and I think this is the best one yet, it deserves a wide reading.

I agree! I don’t have a clue what had happened to Matt but I no longer trust it as a reliable news soutce. Seems to haved turned into a rag mag, too much perversion and fake news with a decidedly anti trump bias throughout.

I never read him. Of course I’ve always relegated him to the “Snopes” category.

I go to a number of aggregator sites daily. I don’t do that so much for “opinion” as for raw information. I really don’t care what most of them “think”. Once in a while I find something pleasantly well-thought out and articulately presented. It’s rare, but sometimes it happens.

The problem is always, the premises. It doesn’t matter how logically presented an argument is, it can’t hope to arrive at truth if the premise is wrong.

I never really went to Drudge in the first place; I just didn’t care for the barebones look.

I’ll typically go to the 2 Chicago papers websites, to see what the headlines are locally, and SteveQuayle.com to start me off on my daily interweb journey. I do like Whatfinger’s layout as well, and will go there 2-3X/week.

I also saw last week that CRTV merged with The Blaze, noticed my CRTV app on my phone changed over to The Blaze, and promptly deleted the app.

I still go with OANN on TV,but it’s not as comprehensive as I’d like. I sure enjoy their people and their presentation of the stories. They DO seem to REALLY fact check their info before broadcasting it,which I appreciate.

I’ve noticed that where Drudge used to link to Canadian, S.E. Pacific, British, and alternative sites outside the U.S. MSM, lately just about everything he links to — Reuters, CNN, MSNBC, AP, USATODAY — are the solidly anti-Trump lean towards the leftwing, and include anti-Trump accusations as accepted fact while portraying anything negative about leftists as “alleged.” The comparison with Whatfinger is damning.

Thank you!

But we still get the occasional Drudge “useful idiots” who vehemently defend Drudge Report and verbally abuse FOTM for saying otherwise. Their comments were not published because there is no reason under the sky why I/we have to tolerate abuse. Some time ago, I actually lost a longtime FOTM reader (who used to glowingly commend this site and “Dr. Eowyn”) because he took issues with my pointing out Drudge‘s turn to the dark side. In an email to me, he even stooped to personal and racist insults.

Yes, I also have noticed the shift towards the lamestream media posts that Drudge seems to highlight more and more…started to get sick of his drivel articles on some many subjects as well from click bait news outlets, esp. in Britain.

MATT DRUDGE IS AN ASSHOLE. HE HAS JOINED THE FAKE NEWS MEDIA & WANTS TO SEE TRUMP IMPEACHED.

Drudge has definitely gone off the rails. Wharfinger.com, The Epoch Times, and One America News are great sources for real news and excellent replacements to Drudge.
