Over the years, the Drudge Report has been a go-to place for millions of conservatives, journalists, and fearful Democrats to check on a daily basis. Matt Drudge and his team have served the conservative movement and been one of the top aggregators of the news we all need to see.
Things have changed. Trump happened. Now, the site has turned into the ultimate Trump mouthpiece, disseminator of propaganda against Ted Cruz, and safe haven for Trumpeters to hide their eyes from the truth about their candidate. Strangely, the site has also become a bit more offbeat. This started happening before they became Trump’s pets; the stories shifted from hard-hitting political journalism to strange news that makes it seem more like Fark or Reddit than a place to find the news.
The staff at News Watch has agreed to fight back. If Drudge is going to be pro-Trump, we’re going to be the pro-Cruz alternative. Drudge gets millions of visitors per day. We get thousands. We’re not going to move the needle by making this move and the work that it takes to keep the links updated throughout the day is probably more trouble than it’s worth, but there’s no excuse at this point. The election is too important. Even if we reach 0.1% of what Drudge can reach, it’s worth the effort.
We will still be posting original content, of course. This is, after all, a conservative news blog that relies on patriotism and good editorial standards in order to keep our readers informed. However, we’ve decided to lead with the aggregator to make sure our visitors have a place where they can find the real news about Cruz and Trump.
We haven’t forgotten the liberals. Like Drudge, we’ll also be pointing out the fallacies of the left and highlighting their follies. In that regard, we’re in lockstep with Drudge.
We appreciate your support. Share us. Spread the word. Tell your pro-Cruz friends. We’re really hopeful that this can add a bit of help in a world with sites like Drudge, Breitbart, InfoWars, and other pro-Trump websites. Please go ahead and check out our homepage.
