If you’ve noticed that the Drudge Report has been leaning left, you’re not alone.
It’s the subject of a new campaign titled “Free Matt Drudge”. And the goal is to launch a conservative alternative.
“We love Matt Drudge and know the only way the Drudge Report would have gone so far left is if he was being held hostage in some progressive’s basement. For this reason, we demand his immediate release without condition.”
That part is obviously satire, but what about the underlying message?
The new publication (which hasn’t yet been named) is set to launch in mid-January.
It was called into action based on the left-swing the Drudge Report took during impeachment. But many say the Drudge went left the day after the election.
“This is something that began the day after the election. You could watch it in real time starting at about 9:30 a.m. a day after the election.”
“The nature of Silicon Valley is that while there are lots of nice people that are in Silicon Valley, on the whole, it tends to be less than an open-minded or tolerant region when it comes to political persuasion. Even the slightest bit of dissent is treated harshly.”
