Matt Drudge, who practically created aggregate journalism on the Internet, has seen his best days. He’s washed up. Yes, his website the Drudge Report is still online, but clearly the father of citizen journalism has lost his mojo.
It seems conservative monolith Matt Drudge is taking some pride in paying the penalty for not purchasing insurance under Obamacare. He’s even got a name for it.
And White House progressive newer Jason Lee had a few more words for this washed up so-1990s prevaricator… er, purveyor.
A few minutes later, Jason Lee, the Director of Progressive Media at the White House, tweeted a response, saying Mr. Drudge’s tweet was a, “flat lie, no fee for previous year. Scary how much influence he once had.”
See, influence in the hands of a common blogger is a dangerous thing, no matter how successful he or she may appear to be. Only Obama-accredited new agencies should be able to be purveyors of news.
If Matt Drudge had paid attention, he would have followed Nancy Pelosi‘s sage advice, lo, those many years ago, and read ObamaCare … strike that… the really, really, really Affordable Health Care Act, after it was passed.
Hence he must #pay the recompense of reward for all once influential bloggers who aren’t influential anymore. Discredit and public humiliation. Because he was just a passing fad, anyway… like the tea party.
Wait. Stop. Drudge had more to say.
Sorry for interrupting.
A White House aide set off a stampede of liberal media criticism for Internet news pioneer Matt Drudge over Obamacare – but his critics don’t seem to understand how small businesses pay taxes.
The brouhaha started when Drudge tweeted, “Just paid the Obamacare penalty for not ‘getting covered’… I’M CALLING IT A LIBERTY TAX.” …
Drudge indicated in his followup tweets that since he is self-employed as the proprietor of The Drudge Report, he files as a small business. According to the IRS’s website for self-employed individuals, they are required to pay taxes quarterly.
“As a self-employed individual, generally you are required to file an annual return and pay estimated tax quarterly,” the IRS website reads.
Oops! Sorry. Forget I said anything.
False alarm. Continue on, Drudge. Maybe some people are still reading. My mistake. Taxes for something people neither want nor can afford are a b*tch, but they still must be paid.
We”ll check with the White. House.
Regular Right Guy, and I am sure all of Obama Nation, applaud you Matt Drudge for paying your taxes.
Just like the law requires.
