Julian Assange praises Matt Drudge as ‘news media innovator’

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange told a group of college students Friday morning that the “only hope” for U.S. electoral politics is Republican Sen. Rand Paul (KY) and his brand of Libertarian politics. According to the right-wing college news site CampusReform.com, the international fugitive and accused acquaintance rapist also heaped praise…

Hate crime in Mississippi

While Matt Drudge cranks out a constant flow of propaganda to convince his easily-bewildered audience that there's some kind of black-on-white race war going on, CNN is reporting an actual hate crime in Mississippi.

Ann Coulter: Baninated!

Matt Drudge claims that NBC has instituted a ban on Ann Coulter in favor of America’s Second Worst Public Figure, Perez Hilton. The most damning quote comes from this obviously very, very real Today Show insider who I’m very sure said exactly this, which is entirely reflective of the mindset…

The Drudge Effect

Matt Drudge has always reminded me of that inexplicably popular kid in grade school, the one who wasn’t particularly clever or witty or rich or anything, but who could get a tooth knocked out riding a bike and send half the class to the nurse’s office because of the fumes…
