It is great to see Matt Drudge showcase himself again on his own website..
There is absolutely no doubt that the Drudge Report changed the world, started a media revolution.. and for better or worse paved the way for what we are dealing with today…
Drudge showed the media that a glamor job on a network wasn’t what mattered..
Just a modem and a web space. It all happened in the murky mid-90s when his gossip column reached 300,000 or so folks–a major achievement for that time! Even AOL had struggles Drudge never did.
And that magic moment. The time he was given a lead that no one else would bite one: An intern sex scandal in the White House that would change history, journalism, and the basic fabric of our nation…
And now Drudge is touting his presence in the Monica Lewinsky drama IMPEACHMENT..
DRUDGE HIMSELF MARKED THE OCCASION WITH A SERIES OF NEWS LINKS AND A NOSTALGIC IMAGE OF HIMSELF ON HIS SITE, THE DRUDGE REPORT..
Drudge linked a story by Adrienne Gafney with a headline “Memories How Drudge Changed it All” ..
Drudge, and his soon to be famous site Drudge Report, achieved the impossible in 1998 and stunned the world when he broke the news about President Clinton’s affair with an intern named Monica Lewinsky—a relationship that’s at the center of the new series, airing now on FX.
There is a lot more about his influence, his role … all of it.
When the HORROR REPORT first began back in the early days if the 21st century, we homaged Drudge by stealing his look and design.
Some have dismissed his site and his role in history. Other realized immediately then and still today how much of a role has had in just about every historical event since the mid 1990s….
