Anyone who goes to the Drudge Report can’t help but notice that like Breitbart News, it has been fundamentally transformed into a propaganda website to elect bloviating billionaire and reality game show host Donald Trump.
Someone else has noticed too, constitutional conservative presidential candidate Ted Cruz, who is presently in second place behind the New York liberal, but has been quickly closing the gap over the past three weeks.
On Monday, while campaigning in California, a state which promises to be pivotal to Republicans for the first time in decades, appeared on San Diego radio host Mike Slater’s radio program, telling Slater that the Drudge Report is now a “Trump attack site.”
After Mike Slater gave the example of a recent head-snapping Drudge headline that seemed to be particularly not only anti-Cruz but also anti-Christian, Cruz praised the news aggregator for its success over the years of exposing liberalism, but noted that it is clearly a Trump propaganda site.
“Drudge Report over the years has done a good job highlighting the excesses of the left and the excesses of liberalism and about the past month the Drudge Report has basically become the attack site for the Donald Trump campaign.
So every day, they have the latest Trump attack — they’re directed at me — by all appearances, Roger Stone now decides what’s on Drudge. Most days, they have a six-month-old article that is some attack on me. It’s whatever the Trump campaign is pushing that day will be the banner headline on Drudge.”
Cruz said that Drudge, ran by Matt Drudge, also shows its bias by only reporting Trump victories while ignoring his losses.
“There was no red siren on Drudge when we won all 34 delegates in Colorado,” Cruz noted.
Instead, today, as if they’re regurgitating Trump’s unhinged Twitter feed, the site is full of links to articles accusing Ted Cruz of somehow stealing delegates at the Colorado GOP convention over the weekend, an event Donald Trump chose not to attend.
