Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, November 26, 2020

Tablet: In interviews with over a half-dozen various former [Matt] Drudge associates, about half suggested that the site may no longer be under his control. For these people, politics alone couldn't explain all the changes at the site. The humor, the oddball stories about sex robots and exorcisms, and the obsession with weather events are all almost entirely gone, along with any pretense to original reporting.

One of the few ex-Drudge associates who would discuss him on-record in any depth is the New York literary agent Lucianne Goldberg, a figure of some notoriety for her role in revealing then-president Bill Clinton's affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky. Goldberg is a former close confidante who said she had not spoken with Drudge in over five years. She believes he no longer runs the site. "It's a totally different publication," she told me.

Drudge Report prints facts too contradictory to Trump objectives over three consecutive quarters (covid) and we're supposed to ask
Who Owns This?
GOP is scared that the likes of Matt D. can't be owned into failure.

I hate the auto-load every 30 seconds, very distracting. I suppose they count every load as a visit.

I can't remember for sure, but weren't they positive about Trump in the beginning? They have been ruthless to Trump over the last year or so. I enjoyed hearing Trump complain about it. The irony was and is pretty amusing.

Saw a sex robot story there last week. Placed an order purely for research purposes.

I don't see what message the Democrats will ever be able to win them over with.

Only through education can we eliminate poverty.

This site. You can't be a parody of Drudge Report when it doesn't offer anything to Retort to. It's already an echo chamber, but now it doesn't even offer an alternative to something.

They flipped back when he publicly bent over for Putin. Seems so long ago now... I didn't think he could do any worse than that... but daaaaaaang

Leaving in disgrace... twisting his own blade to boot.
