1. No. I believe Drudge posts links that support his conservative viewpoint. If there is a Republican position that he disagreed with, he would post those too. He posts the links that he agrees with. Since he pays for the bandwidth of his site, he is entitled to post the stuff he wants.
2. I do not know of anyone who uses Drudge as their primary news source. Hell, I would wager more people on this forum use Chiefsplanet more as a source of news than the Drudge Report. I know I do.
3. Sure. But I do not know of anyone who is locked in a room with nothing but the Drudge Report.
Huffington Post is just as bad, if not worse, since there are significantly more pieces actually written by them. The fact that you view them in a different light shows your double standard.
