DrudgeReport.com is leaning left of late and there may be a good reason for it. Rumor has it that Matt Drudge isn’t there any longer since he sold the site.
None of this is good for conservatives.
Did Drudge sell or sell out or both?
Citizen Free Press is run by one of Lou Dobbs’ former producers. Whatfinger is run by three military service members, former and current.
Rasmussen Reports tweeted in response to Citizen Free Press asking the question, “We don’t think Matt is there anymore, CFP. Word is he sold, just waiting for confirmation. Now that will be a story…”
Back in August, Buzzfeed News mentioned Drudge was making major changes to his advertising. That likely had a purpose.
Some are reporting that Matt Drudge has moved left politically to please his new owners. Allegedly, he signed up with Google recently. Google had purchased his father’s website, RefDesk.
Others say a former Weekly Standard writer — a never Trumper — bought Drudge Report.
Wikipedia writes: Daniel Halper is an American political writer. In 2017, he became an editor for the Drudge Report where he has steered the news-site in an Anti-Trump direction. He previously served as the online editor of the cosmopolitan, country-club conservative news publication The Weekly Standard and is the author of an unflattering 2014 biography of the Clinton family titled Clinton, Inc.: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine.
No matter what the truth, DrudgeReport no longer has anything to offer a conservative. It’s definitely not the same. It’s boring to say the least.
Drudge has become no better than Establishment Media/DNCPropaganda outlets & likely was sold to a new owner
This is sad for the legacy of Andrew Breitbart
I’m not reading Drudge anymore. Neither should you
