If you’ve seen the Drudge Report recently, you know that it has changed dramatically, 180 degrees. Matt Drudge is now firmly a man of the progressive left. At times, his site is indistinguishable from The Daily Beast or any other woke propaganda outlet posing as a news company.
The leader in the self-published internet news revolution for many years now has been Matt Drudge of the Drudge Report, a conservative aggregate news site featuring not stories but headlines and links to the “real news”. Every once in a while Drudge would break a bombshell like he did with Monica Lewinsky, and as a result has become incredibly wealthy from the billions of views his site gets per year. But now, The Drudge Report has switched to the Left, and joined the great pile-on to try and take Trump down.
Other sites like Whatfinger and the Bongino Report have risen up to fill in the void, both of them very good and I certainly do recommend you visit them, but Drudge leaves some pretty big shoes to fill. Still, not an impossible task if Christian Conservatives pick up the slack and support them. The November election is going to be a real brawl, prepare for blood.
Tucker Carlson: ‘Matt Drudge is now firmly a man of the progressive left’
FROM THE HILL: Tucker Carlson called Matt Drudge “firmly a man of the progressive left,” with the conservative Fox News host comparing the Drudge Report founder to The Daily Beast or “any other woke propaganda outlet posing as a news company” during his program on Friday night.
“For decades, Matt Drudge was one of the most influential figures in conservative news journalism,” Carlson said in an interview with Matthew Lysiak, the author of a new biography on Drudge. “His self-titled Drudge Report broke news and set priorities in digital media. Republican presidential candidates made wooing the famously secretive Drudge a high priority, and for several of them, including Donald Trump, it paid off big.”
“BUT IF YOU’VE SEEN THE DRUDGE REPORT RECENTLY, YOU KNOW THAT IT HAS CHANGED DRAMATICALLY, 180 DEGREES. MATT DRUDGE IS NOW FIRMLY A MAN OF THE PROGRESSIVE LEFT. AT TIMES, HIS SITE IS INDISTINGUISHABLE FROM THE DAILY BEAST OR ANY OTHER WOKE PROPAGANDA OUTLET POSING AS A NEWS COMPANY.”
Many prominent supporters of President Trump have grown increasingly agitated with the Drudge Report’s direction in recent months, as it has taken a noticeable turn after being staunchly in Trump’s corner leading up to and after the 2016 election.
Trump allies such as Fox News contributor Dan Bongino have been fiercely critical of Drudge. Bongino founded the Bongino Report as a counter to the Drudge Report in December 2019.
“Drudge has abandoned you. I NEVER will. Check out, and bookmark, the Bongino Report today,” Bongino tweeted to his 1.3 million followers on the day of his site’s launch. READ MORE
