How Drudge Changed the World

Matt-DrudgeAlex Jones posted an article today that has nothing to do with Barack Obama’s rumored homosexuality or place of birth or any of the rest of the 44th president’s shady history, often the fare when visiting Inforwars.

In fact, the piece doesn’t mention Obama at all.

In his article, Jones pays tribute to a character—and I think character is the right word—who has, for nearly two decades now, been responsible for many a liberal vodka binge.

Matt Drudge.

Infowars:

Since Matt Drudge launched his web site thousands of news sites have appeared to challenge the official globalist dominated political orthodoxy, its censorship and omissions, and offer humanity a truly more balanced and less bias examination of the world.

Drudge’s story exemplifies the power of the individual when access to the free market is truly unrestricted, and underscores why the establishment is so desperate to regulate the Internet at a time when the mainstream dinosaur media is in a state of rapid decline.

By proving that one man could break the monopoly of corporate press control of the narrative, Drudge led a media renaissance, blazing the trail for countless others to follow. Many of the statements Drudge made during his renowned National Press Club speech in 1998 remain just as prescient today, proving that he was way ahead of his time.

The Drudge Report website now drives more traffic than Face book and Twitter combined, while trouncing the likes of CNN, Huffington Post and Slate by huge margins.

Drudge has completely redefined journalism in the modern age, proving, much to the chagrin of the likes of Dianne Feinstein, that anyone with a laptop can and should be considered a citizen journalist.

Thanks to Drudge, the fourth estate now has the potential to comprise virtually everyone in the world, enabling a mammoth check and balance to guard against government corruption and abuse.

So at last maybe we know the real reason Vince Foster “committed suicide”. Just kidding.

It occurs to me that, while spawning this great conservative backlash, Drudge is also responsible for citizen journalism, across the board—both conservative and liberal. Which means that we have to put up with sites like Daily Kos and Slate.

But, I suppose, that is a First Amendment society at work. In order to get the truth, we may also have to wade our way through a little anti-American bull$#!+.

So, David Brock, when you’re not curled up on the floor of the shower stall at night, wallowing in tears because your parents wouldn’t give you that Shirley Temple doll you always wanted, thank your lucky stars for Matt Drudge.

HT: Who else? Thank you Drudge.

    Looking for that server-killing link, eh RG? 😉

      Blackie, is that what Ziegler is saying???

        Years ago Steve H Graham wrote that an Instapundit link was nothing. If you really wanted the incoming traffic to fry your server it had to be either Drudge or Lucianne Goldberg. I’ve never been linked by any of them, so I wouldn’t know, but a Reddit link in the right forum can really blow a place up.

        Wow. Didn’t know that. This guy John Ziegler who did the first Palin vid is taking me on on Twitter for this post, saying Drudge got Obama elected. Well, my post merely recounts Jones’s post on Drudge pioneering citizen journalism. Why I mentioned him. Todd Palin dumped Ziegler and Ziegler wrote a hit piece on Palin in TheDC later. He seems like a whack to me. Anyway, I’ve been linked by @Instapundit five or six times recently. Seem okay to me but not huge. Thanks.

    Didn’t know Ziegler was going after you. I stay off of Twitter most of the time because it’s freaking awful.

    Look, Drudge exposed Clinton when no one in the mainstream media would do it, and he made a name (and a successful business) for himself through passion, balls and creativity. He deserves credit for all of that, and if Ziegler wants to make this about a narrow issue then he’s a fool.

    I didn’t agree with Breitbart on everything, but my narrow disagreements in no way negate his impact on media and journalism. To suggest otherwise would be foolish arrogance.

      And for the record, I thought that Media Malpractice was pretty good.

        Yeah, me too. I only had second thoughts about him when I learned that he seems to do this to all his former employers. Drudge stopped asking him to guest host and voila!

      Same. We might be here irritating the hell out of everyone, if not for Drudge. Lol. So nuff said.

    Drudge cut the path that many others have now followed. He demonstrated that the internet could turn the media into a two way street.
    A lot of the old media dinosaurs can’t handle that change. They’re stuck in the past, where they dispensed and we received. The internet linked the audience up to one another; someone who knew that a news story had been doctored or slanted could now share that with the world. And the news will never be the same again.
