Republican propaganda? It is from one of Direckshun's "legitimate" news sources, but Drudge also links to it.

So is it a real news story if Direckshun links to a CNBC story, and not if Drudge does?

From looking at his page, it does not appear Drudge writes anything. They are links to other sites. I see links to CNBC, Politico, Foxnews, WSJ, etc.

Are these stories no longer real news stories because Drudge links to them?

Drudge absolutely leans to the right, and he provides links to stories that support his point of view. Just like the fact that Direckshun is a shill for the left, and posts links and articles hear that support his point of view.

Drudge is not a source per say, he is a collection of links to other sources. Each story and source should be judged on its own merit, not whether Drudge, or Direckshun, think it is a real news story.
Drudge writes very little. At time the headlines may be posted on Drudge slightly differently than the OP.
