Is Drudge Report cucking?
I've noticed in the past few months that Drudge (https://drudgereport.com/) is painting a more moderate narrative than before. He is moving left of Fox News. Other people are noticing:


I suppose his true colors as a homosexual Jew are coming out. He has always been sympathetic to the gays.

One theory is that he changed to appeal to get more money for ads.


The ad company is connected to a Google employee:

RE: Is Drudge Report cucking?
Yeah I noticed this the other day.

I don't visit the site regularly so I wasn't sure if it was just a bad run or I'd spent too long in an echo-chamber and was getting a look at the normie-Right for the first time in a while.

But apparently not. Looks like they're on the path to convergement.

God demands of Man responsibility. God demands of Woman vulnerability. These are their curse and blessing alike. Libertianism is to Man as Feminism is to Woman.

Those screenshots are from the BuzzFeed story about the ad company. https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/cra...ad-revenue

Whatever the case, I figure he used to get about 360 page views from me daily. (It was my homepage + auto-refresh every two minutes for 12 hours.) I give him four or five now.

Good opportunity for someone with a following to create a new right-leaning replacement for Drudge. (@Roosh)

Funny you mention this as I deleted drudge from my bookmarks last week for posting similar headlines.

RE: Is Drudge Report cucking?
Robert Stacey McCain suggested another idea on his blog recently. The Drudge Report might be trying to make the democrats look like the lunatics they are:
Quote: My hunch is that Drudge looks upon impeachment (and “scandal” generally) as good for his traffic. Besides, if you think that impeachment is apt to prove disastrous for Democrats (as I do), wouldn’t it actually be your duty as a right-wing journalist to encourage them to pursue this mania? So if Drudge’s choice of headlines seems anti-Trump lately, is that possibly misleading? And deliberately so?

Retrieved from https://theothermccain.com/2019/09/29/im...ent-mania/

I'm not certain either way.

RE: Is Drudge Report cucking?
I've scanned Drudge for over 20 years and have also noticed a distinct leftward/centrist shift in the past year.

Add to that his semi-fixation with sex robots and about 3 straight months worth of articles about "Mayor Pete" when he was "having his moment," and well, I've started using https://www.christiandailyreporter.com/ as my main aggregator. This is the site launched by the guy who started the Babylon Bee. He also started a news site at https://www.disrn.com/.

RE: Is Drudge Report cucking?
I think Drudge is still pretty decent, honestly if you want any "complete" view of the news/social commentary you really should be reading 3-4 sources minimum.

I use RealClear and Reuters for daily stuff, Reuters has a good 15-min daily video news briefing if you're interested in mainstream but reliable coverage. Politico has "inside the beltway" newsletters that are different from the usual tripe us commoners are given; they're worth the look to find the email list.
For the views of the "Cathedral" (to use Moldbug's term) I regularly read the BBC Ideas section, Foreign Policy, Aeon, Commonweal and Jacobin. All are quite leftist but still provide intelligent commentary. I'm more of a pro-Vat. II Catholic so I enjoy "liberal" sites like America Magazine, Barron's videos, even First Things, but YMMV.

In terms of stuff on the "right" I've never liked Zero Hedge oddly enough. I'll read American Sun, they're good and provide lots of links to similar minded sites. Additionally I'll check MintPress occasionally for longer articles, Jacobite too. Sometimes foreign newspapers have more "unbiased" international coverage in English: it's worth checking out The Hindu and UAE's national paper, both are pretty decent for foreign commentary.

Other sites I check on-and-off are National Interest and The Diplomat for foreign policy stuff (my main area of interest); both of these sites are good for mainstream Asia-Pacific coverage too. Sometimes I'll search for stories in DuckDuckGo as they pull from different, less mainstream sites in results when compared to Google/Bing etc.

RE: Is Drudge Report cucking?
Over the last two years the decline of Drudge has been very noticeable. r/The_Donald has regular 'WTF Drudge!?' posts.

Rantingly is a good alternative that I have been using for a while.

Whatfinger "was founded by military people and 100% unapologetic for being patriotic". It has a huge amount of links but suffers from a messy layout.

The Liberty Mill is much tidier and more compact, grouping links by source. However, they only covers alt-sources, no direct MSM.

You can find a mini curated aggregator at InfoGalactic News.

RE: Is Drudge Report cucking?
I finally had it with Drudge weeks ago and have been encouraging people on social media to abandon the site. I don't expect all sunshine and roses but Drudge squares up his site and frames headlines to dispirit conservatives, which until recently the site was geared to.

Christian Daily Reporter is solid. The guy who created it said he based his own site on Drudge. The guy is pretty woke on the issues on big social media companies having massive powers to determine who gets heard or doesn't get heard.

Quote:I’ve always wanted to make a Christian news aggregator. (Yes, for REAL news). Like the Drudge Report, but for Christians. It’s been one of those ideas I’ve had for years and that has just never let go of me — just like The Babylon Bee was.

Quote:One thing I’ve grown increasingly concerned about in the past year or two is the enormous power we have given tech giants like Facebook and Google. Power not just over referral traffic and website monetization (which, after running two highly trafficked websites, I can attest is monumental), but the power to control information and shape society, especially as they continue to gobble up the internet while growing more and more hostile to the Christian worldview. They have a choke-hold on the flow of information on the internet. For this and other reasons, CDR is not on any social media channel and never will be. It’s completely Facebook, Google, Instagram, and Twitter-free. There are no third-party trackers or anything like that. It’s just a static web page containing links, updated by hand. I don’t even use a content management system like WordPress. Zero gatekeepers. Zero apologies. Accountable to no one but God.

Thumbs up on National Interest. They are one of the few foreign policy/international relations publications that doesn't tout the neo-con/liberal order/globalist line. Rather, the align closer to the realist vision of less foreign interventions and are skeptical of any sort of nation building.

RE: Is Drudge Report cucking?
Rantingly is pretty good and a similar format.

Anonymous Conservative blog is good but with a conspiratorial bent, which is very good. AC claims that Drudge sold out for big advertising dollars, and suspects the advertising dollars are fake and just a disguised payoff.

I like to keep abreast of various conspiracy theories not because they are all true but because it opens your mind to what might be true.

Antiwar.com is another good un-zogged source of information, particularly on foreign policy.

The American Conservative is also very good, a paleoconservative publication.
