    i am always amused at drudge followers.....the site is mostly gossip..with headlines left for days...esp if the headlines are gossip....i mean how many days does one need to see putin doing martial arts?


    so why do you read drudge?

    Gossip IS news now, unfortunately. Across the channel lineup, website URLS and in print.

    It's not limited to just Drudge.

    Drudge links to all the mainstream news. They just play with the headlines. Its the 2nd site I click on every morning. After USMB of course.

    gossip and propaganda, I don't go there anymore. I have listened to beck, O'reilly, and hannity, just to see how badly they twist info, I know how bad they twist info, so I don't go there anymore either.

    it's gossip most of the time, in my humble opinion....the National Enquirer of Politics.....

    Gossip sells, regular ole news really doesn't.

    The headlines are downright lies that Matt Drudge never retracts.
