Drudge vs. the media hacks

Over at The American Spectator, I demystify the alleged mystery of Matt Drudge's reclusiveness:
If you're not in the news business, you've got no idea how important Drudge has become. Getting your story linked at The Drudge Report is more important to a reporter's reputation nowadays than getting a Pulitzer Prize. If Drudge spent his evenings and weekends on the cocktail-party circuit in Georgetown, Manhattan or Brentwood, his media "friends" who invited him to those parties would expect favorable treatment, and he doesn't want to be compromised by such obligations.
Read the whole thing.


  1. Know what's more important than getting linked on Drudge? Fisking David Brooks! Tuesday came and went... what went wrong?

    "President Obama is arguing for his activist agenda as a defense of middle-class morality and is positioning Democrats as the party of order and small-town values"

    This guy is just CRUISIN for a bruisin!

  2. I wholeheartedly apologize! My scroll-wheel must have gotten away from me, so i didn't see the fisking before the chiding! I'll HTTJ like the WB I am!
