I'm sure you would, since you obviously prefer one over the other.
Just like you want to think your prefered news sources are unbiased.

Drudge is a bullshit factory in single-minded service to the Republican Party.
Funny how Drudge links stories to just about every site you listed earler.

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.

Meh. I am bored here at work, so if he gets a laugh, well, I helped bring some happiness into the world, and God will smile upon me for it . Listening to the McCaskill/Akin debate on the internet.

Drudge clearly haunts Direckshun's dreams at night. He is a danger to freedom everywhere, and Drudge hates small children. Luckily, Direckshun is there to guard the masses from this vile threat.

I don't believe any news source is unbiased. You're bitching at a guy who reads many different outlets, and ignoring the guy who blindly relies on one.

At the same time, I don't think you'd put Townhall.com on the same platform as Forbes, would you?

I know it's not as unimpeachable as Pete's TOTALLY reputable Weekly Standard and Townhall resources, or the thread where patteeu straight-up employs Republican propaganda, so please handicap me appropriately.
Every one of those "reliable sources" comes straight from the Drudgerport.

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.
Bingo

1. When it fits his narrative.

2. In a sea of other blatantly partisan sources.

How much do you read Drudge, exactly?

Seriously. Before we even further this conversation.

I'm going to start posting threads from Drudge just to piss you off. You're a joke, anymore. Might as well have some fun with it.

I'm liberal. That's your issue.

You have no problem ignoring conservatives you think are stupid. But Direckshun: that guy deserves a good joshing.

Hardly at all. I have some friends that will email a link from time to time, but I cannot remember the last time I read anything that Drudge actually wrote himself. Looking at his page right now, I can't find anything that he actually wrote.

All I see are links to the BBC, Nbcnews, and the Huffington Post....yeah, Drudge is so radically right wing he links to the Huffington Post...not only that, but it appears to be a Huffington Post story that paints Ryan in a bad light over an incident at a soup kitchen, written by someone who works for the Huffington Post

Funny, you would think Drudge would not want to link to that, being that he needs to keep his Republican Overlords happy by only posting positive things about the Republican Ticket.
