The Drudge Report became the target of furious conservatives Thursday as they vented about what they claim is a planned attack on Newt Gingrich, The New York Times
Matt Drudge's conservative website, which posted huge, screaming headlines about Gingrich, prompted the former House speaker's supporters to accuse Drudge of selling out to the Republican establishment, the Times reported.
Among the comments posted on social media sites, according to the Times:
Ana Beavenhouser, whose Twitter profile says that she is “so right wing, my symbol is not the elephant … it is the WOOLY MAMMOTH!!” posted on Twitter: Where the hell was all this effort into “exposing” a candidate when #obama was running? #Drudge is officially irrelevant now!
Many accused Drudge of joining other media to keep Gingrich from becoming the GOP nominee.
Another blog post declared Thursday to be “Bloody Thursday the Day the Drudge Report Sold Out.” The writer said, “I have read the Drudge Report daily ever since he broke the Lewinsky story. I have NEVER seen him attack anyone with the volume of coverage and with the venom that he has attacked this Gingrich fellow.”
By Thursday evening, Drudge Report’s home page again featured a picture of a glum-looking President Barack Obama atop headlines about a worsening situation in Syria and Egypt. But the main headline still attacked Gingrich: “NOW DOLE DROPS STINK ON NEWT.”
