Not huge news, but might let Carly into the top tier for debates.

In that case, the proferred origination for the hits is obviously improbable.



Dudes it is then.

This is my general link source.

He does not need to write much on his own, he hasn't the past several years. But his page is great to get a quick view of a great cross-section of stories.



I prefer Google news

To cure being so out-of-touch, a visit to his page would be in order. Or if that is too repellent, just look up the meaning of aggregator.

I just checked out the Drudge Report.
Is there some daily report written by him? Weekly report? Monthly report.
Its all links.
Shouldn't it be the Drudge Links rather then report?
Google News is all links also.
Why go to Drudge when Google gets the job done?

I just went to Google News and what a cumbersome
page. Scroll and scroll and scroll. On Drudge, in
3 short scrolls I can see links to 60 stories. It's very
fast and efficient and changes constantly. It's the
modern page for the modern world.

See above reference to "aggregator," a common term in this day and age.

Some people might feel fully informed with that. Some people might also feel fully comfortable with Google tracking all their moves.

Why? It works just fine as is.

Well, Drudge was there first and Drudge gets the job done for a huge part of the population. I like the cross-section of his links and know where the other links I want to use are on the page without looking. All that has really change is he puts more pictures than he did 10 years ago.

No need to change.

The benefit of Drudge is it's so fricking easy
and fast to view 40-50 headlines. It takes
less than 30 seconds and you're outa there.

Drudge has never changed the page format
and never will. He says you lose 20% of your
audience every time you change.

Liberals are still sore at Drudge for not only breaking the Lewinsky story, but that CBS was covering for Clinton by sitting on it.
