    Drudge used to be good; gab has a news aggregator that is better.

    There red are a number of aggregators who have sprung up since Drudge started taking a left turn.

    Because the left has already labelled drudge as unreliable, so the only people who will check out drudge on the left are those who are not familiar. Most of that 2% will drop off if they discover Drudges roots.

    and it only cost him 20% of readership. Whoops.

    Drudge Report, like Fox News, will begin to see serious declines in viewership. I've stopped visiting Drudge, and Fox News is beginning to lose me to OANN.

    I've never quite understood this idea that The Drudge Report was a right leaning site. It's basically just a site where you can gain access to most every source of news and commentary both left and right.


    He does post articles which report current events.

    He posts links to known liberal anti-Trump sources like WaPo, Yahoo and NYT that are far from being unbiased. That is where the problem lies. He was always known as a conservative blogger, but that has changed.

    Looks like Drudge turned on Trump as did Fox. I'm done with them.

    What it boils down to, is Matt Drudge is really a moderate liberal. I don't think he ever hid that.

    That being said, despite the collector links he offered...it is, and always will be about the Headlines he puts up. He was running very pro Trump headlines for quite some time...viewership would be enormous from Conservatives, and lesser obviously from Libs.

    We both want OUR positive headlines, for our side proclaimed, on a huge collection site like Drudge. The Left is feasting on the negative headlines now, and, the Right is pissed.

    Matt Drudge could be doing Conservatives a favour by doing what he is currently doing, and there is always the possibility that he is doing it for a certain clever reason.

    Now, what I am about say, is not proven to be true (since I am not in Matt Drudges head), however, the below is a possibility because he is clever, and, he definitely changed course to a less pro Trump headline.

    Here is a possibility:

    Leftists don't hear the Right side of things, due to omission by the dominant Leftist MSM news. Matt Drudge changes course, less pro Trump now...and they start going more to his site - which has ALL of the info on there, GOOD and BAD...but no omissions.

    Meaning, more leftists could be reading those usual omissions - on the Drudge Report now...which a clever media guy like Matt Drudge could be doing.


    Speculation, but it is a possibility.

    Noted as well, I haven't gone to Drudge since he shifted gears.

    "I told you the economy was going to tank under Trump". "Yeah you did. Pre Pandemic". "It was going to tank even without the Pandemic". "Uh-huh. Trumps economy was hitting it out of the park Pre Pandemic." <---My cut and paste time saving signature - for all the doom and gloom predictors who will try to rewrite history.
