In a stunning rebuke to his hidden advocacy for liberal Republican Willard Romney yesterday, Matt Drudge's groundbreaking Drudge Report website lost two million readers yesterday.
This was after Drudge posted ten anti-Newt Gingrich stories yesterday morning, getting up to 14 later in the day. (Kristinn Tayor at FreeRepublic).
The Drudge Report saw a drop in traffic yesterday of two million hits in the wake of proprietor Matt Drudge's two-day attack on Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich.
Drudge started his attack on Gingrich Wednesday evening with a banner headline accusing Gingrich of insulting former President Ronald Reagan. Drudge carried on the attack all through Thursday, at one time having fourteen anti-Newt headlines at once.
The assault on Gingrich prompted many supporters to announce they were swearing off the Drudge Report with some saying they would stop using it as their home page.
According to statistics posted by the Drudge Report, the site's hits on Wednesday, January 26, were 33, 807, 227.
Yesterday the hits, as published today on the Drudge Report, were down a full two million to 31, 802, 534.
As of yesterday, Drudge Report, S.E. Cupp, and National Review Online are no longer in my blogroll, since they want to be shills for a liberal Republican. I'm looking forward to seeing what kind of reception Ann Coulter gets at CPAC this year.
Who knows what might happen in the Floriday Primary, but the antics of the Romney acolytes against Newt and his dirty campaigning in general have, from my review of online comments yesterday, have turned so many off that many will not vote for him, if he is the nominee.
