REDPILED Media Weekly Column
Mid last year, Matt Drudge inexplicably changed his aggregation and commentary style from firmly nationalist to rabidly leftist. Leaders of the new populist-nationalist conservative movement like President Trump and Tucker Carlson noted as much, and so concurred liberal media outlets like The New York Times and Vanity Fair.
Unanswered questions related to the infamously reclusive veteran reporter’s recent ideological summersault spurred theories of different ownership or administration of the site, with the New York Post reporting that Drudge was looking to profit off of relinquishing his influential outlet.
Today, Drudge is back in the news over similar speculation related to his website due to a huge overhaul of the static outlets and columnists list at the bottom of the webpage. World Net Daily published an article Tuesday night by editor Joseph Farah acknowledging the history between the two newsmen and outlets, and his recent decision to drop many conservative publications from his perma-links section, including WND. The Gateway Pundit released a piece today commenting on its own excommunication by Drudge and highlighted other notable beheadings, like Free Republic, Western Journal, Lucianne.com, and even neocon-run Daily Wire.
REDPILLED Media now breaks the exclusive news that not only did Drudge remove the influential and independent alternative media outlets listed above, he as well turned his back on over a dozen veteran political commentators, including Alex Jones, Michelle Malkin, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, Mark Levin, and Hugh Hewitt among others.
Making use of the Drudge Report Archives, a side-by-side comparison of the list of columnists at the beginning of April to now reveals 17 nationalist conservatives removed and 11 establishment Republicans added to the section. Specifically, columnists whose links have been removed from the site are: Alex Jones, Bill Press, Brent Bozell, David Limbaugh, Fred Barnes, Gabriel Sherman, George Conway, Sean Hannity, Hugh Hewitt, Laura Ingraham, Maggie Haberman, Mark Levin, Michael Barone, Michelle Malkin, Mish Talk, Rush Limbaugh, and Walter Williams. Columnists who were recently added include: Bill O’Reilly, Charles Hurt, Gerard Baker, Kyle Smith, Matt Taibbi, Maureen Callahan, Michael Fleming, Michael Goodwin, Miranda Devine, Peter Bart, S.E. Cupp.
Apart from the obvious and previously-discussed ideological connection between those axed and promoted, a notable addition to the list is Bill O’Reilly, who has been removed from the Drudge Report since the eve of Christmas Eve, 2016. At 7:32:05 PM on December 23rd, 2016 the link to O’Reilly’s personal website was still up, but four seconds later it was not. Now, O’Reilly enjoys a Drudge perma-link with the likes of Charles Hurt — who used to help run the Drudge Report.
Though Alex Jones was removed from the columnist list, the link to InfoWars in the publication column lives on. Conversely, Ben Shapiro remains linked as a columnist despite his website Daily Wire getting deleted. Alternative news websites ZeroHedge and Breitbart have for now escaped the guillotine, though they surely will be the next to go.
Drudge’s columnist list has significantly dwindled over time, having 114 linked columnists in 2010, decreasing to 73 in 2020, falling to 58 at the beginning of this year, and now dropping to an apparent all-time-low of 52.
