    Whatever happened to Matt Drudge?

    Great interview of a writer who did a book on Matt Drudge. Somewhat answers some of the questions concerning The Drudge Report's abrupt shift over the past few years.

    I heard Levin mention something to this effect on his radio show the other day. Iím not a daily news junkie so I havenít seen much of his recent stuff, but he basically said that Grudge is mainstream now and pushes the narrative.

    Well, if you listen to the interview, Drudge was never really a conservative. He and Breitbart butted heads about anti-Obama stories, and Drudge even told him, "I don't care if Obama is bad for the country, he's great for my website."

    Lots of alternatives to Drudge if you look for them. Hard to break the habit of checking his page, BUT, I'm increasingly finding that the Drudge Report provides no added value as there's little on his page that can't be found by scanning the mainstream media. At the same time, I've found a number of interesting pieces scanning other aggregators. Things that WOULD have been on Drudge back in in "the day," but he ignores now to further the narrative.

    Thus proving it is all about the money. Revenue streams. Click bait monetizing etc and so on.

    Follow the money.

    The Drudge Report, as you remember it, has been sold and new ownership if left leaning.

    Did you listen the interview? The author of the book found no evidence to support that, and everyone he interviewed who knows him doubts Drudge's ego would permit him to let someone else to run it.
