Do you know that the Drudge Report is merely a news aggregation site? Kind of a cultivated internet from the mind of Matt Drudge. They do no reporting or writing themselves.
In many ways just like Yahoo. You could make a site the same way. Many of the ultra-modern topics we have on TMP could land on Drudge in a story from a news organization.

Do you Drudge, and if yes, how often?

I do not Drudge. But I do Kipple.

WarWizard10 Oct 2018 8:48 a.m. PST

Yes – use it every day.

Best 'aggregator' sites I've run across are:

Economistsview.typepad.com
&
Mikethemadbiologist.com

For my daily dose of left wing propaganda I use Google News.
For the right wing stuff I go to Drudge.
Then I listen to Rush to explain everything for me, using small words.

Then I listen to Roseanne Cash and Emmylou Harris on YouTube to calm me down. Lovely ladies. Beautiful voices.

On my way home from work I listen to Michael Savage. The other night he informed us that one of the faults of the Weimar Republic was that they allowed women to have power! I may have misunderstood, but somehow I doubt it.

There are many who continue to get most of their news from comedians, talk shows and reality TV.

If it wasn't mentioned on any of those, then it simply didn't happen.

Everyday!

Dynaman878910 Oct 2018 12:50 p.m. PST

No, instead of a news reporting site it should be called a rumor reporting site.

goragrad10 Oct 2018 1:02 p.m. PST

Nope.

As to Savage…

Winston Smith Supporting Member of TMP10 Oct 2018 1:09 p.m. PST

No, instead of a news reporting site it should be called a rumor reporting site.

Which is interesting because half of his links are to the New York Times and Washington Post. (I know this because the links are behind a paywall, which I refuse to pay.)
So, yes. It is a rumor reporting site. grin

Drudge has dropped from importance in the other place on line I hang out. I only went to it if breaking news was going on but it's not keeping up these days.

No idea what she is saying ( it's French) bot it's sounds sultry.

Buck21510 Oct 2018 2:12 p.m. PST

Yes, everyday I check in on Matt Drudge's aggregator website, get som3 of my news from Newsmax. Haven't listened to Michael Savage in years…

Rdfraf Supporting Member of TMP10 Oct 2018 3:17 p.m. PST

At least once a day

3AcresAndATau10 Oct 2018 3:38 p.m. PST

Every day, at least 3 times a day.

SBminisguy10 Oct 2018 3:42 p.m. PST

I check on Drudge, then take a quick tour through HuffPo, Lucianne and Breitbart. For science, economic and tech news I have various feeds set up from sites like https://www.oftwominds.com/blog.html and https://www.cringely.com

Druge is right wing propaganda, and i treat it as such

Winston Smith Supporting Member of TMP10 Oct 2018 8:09 p.m. PST

Of course he is.
Can you identify left wing propaganda? Or does it not exist?

Personal logo Cacique Caribe Supporting Member of TMP10 Oct 2018 9:46 p.m. PST

"Can you identify left wing propaganda? Or does it not exist?"

Lol. I think they prefer to call it mainstream "news" these days. And the fans like to pretend it's objective and not propaganda. :)

No, and CC is showing his red knickers again.

wrgmr111 Oct 2018 9:09 a.m. PST

Never heard of it. Must be painting Miniatures. In other words l, don't know, don't care.

Aethefalda: "and CC is showing his red knickers again"

What!?!? Red? I ain't no leftie.

LOL. My "knickers" are true blue, what conservatives wore in the US until 1996-2000 (when US media decided to fog things up on purpose), and what conservatives still wear the world over. :)

My grandma was the one with the Radical Red knickers in the family*. Trotsky was her god and savior, until Stalin "took care of him". Even so, she continued to be the "fanatical Marxist" (her words, not mine) until her death at the young age of 96. She was a riot, even if we could never agree on anything … except food. She was a fabulous cook and she said I was her most honest taste-tester. I still miss her dearly.

I'm showing my "red" knickers too. Drudge is a daily must with a small dose of Mr. Limbaugh for good measure. I also think Deleted by Moderator
