    I know pretty much all news is bad news but I have a limit.

    Is there not any news that is positive?

    If I was trying to wreck a country I would be doing exactly what Drudge is doing; maximum panic, maximum negativity.

    Like Rush Limbaugh said - I'm not participating in any economic downturn.

    Not much positive for me. Pretty much everything I believe in is in the 'Deplorable' category. I take what personal good news I can get from my family and little projects I complete.

    Unfortunately I have not totally given up on this country, so I have to at least read what's going on. Constant shaking of my head and palm-to-face-plants make my melon hurt and gag reflex is on overload.

    Sad times for logic and reason and a brain that remembers that what someone just said is totally opposite to what they said a half hour ago.

    I stopped watching news years ago. I’ve been much happier since.

    Drudge has been my homepage for all of my devices from the beginning, but I finally made the change to a weather site about a week ago due to his apparent change. I can now breathe a little easier since my 6 devices are Drudge-free.

    Like some posters replies here on GT; I know it’s going to be negative before reading it....

    It's been a very long time. I think I'll see what kind of tripe is over there.

    Just like before, the only reason to go there is to link to columnists.

    I keep seeing comments about Drudge around here lately. I haven't heard from him since his radio show went off the air. He go super lefty or something?

    Matt Drudge sold out. The Drudge report is now controlled entirely by the DNC.

    I go to RealClearPolitics instead. It presents both sides equally and doesn't seem to be biased either way.

    I used to go to both RCP and Drudge every day and the pretty much covered the same stories. But now Drudge is more like the NYT, WAPO, The Daily Worker, Pravda, and the Democrat Underground.

    It was one of my go to news sites as well.

    Reports indicate Matt Drudge no longer owns and operates the Drudge Report (since 2019). I also noticed the change in course (to the left) as well, and it has been removed from my bookmarks for some time now.

    Drudge has been dead to me for well over a year. I don’t miss him at all. He sold out like Al Gore, for the money.

    Drudge was one of my daily go-to sites, but yes I think it has been sold. I no longer go there at all.

    The Citizens Free Press and the Liberty Daily have since replaced Drudge for my daily news browsing. Add a touch of Whatfinger News and Trends.Gab.com for just occasional browsing and I'm set for the day.

    I never, and I mean never, go to the Lefty News sites like CNN, MSNBC, NBC, CBS, etc.

    I used to be a regular user of The Drudge Report, until he sold out.
    I'm not sure when it happened, maybe a year or so ago?

    He probably got a new boyfriend. :aodnsb:

    Try Thelibertydaily.com


    I don't think he's in charge, probably sold it. I think he signed something that says he can't disclose ownership for a period of time, most likely until after election. Big leftist money, I could be wrong.



    I used to be addicted to checking the site. It has become obvious there has been a change for months. They have a major leftist propagandist in charge now. They are always pushing a anti Trump narrative with no counter articles. You could get same narrative from MSNBC or CNN.

    I didn’t know why it changed, I thought he jumped on the never trump bandwagon... removed from my browsers a few months back.

    I’m a drudge fan and check it several times a day. I too have noticed a change. Almost seems he is now anti trump. I’m just about off of all news and getting ready to pull the plug on judge.
