Matt Drudge - Disinformation guru of the GOP

2 posts / 0 new

Meet Matt Drudge – the biggest purveyor of misinformation and wild conspiracy theories on the Internet. According to a report by the Center for American Progress – the Drudge Report has posted links to crackpot far-right conspiracy websites more than 180 times in just the last year alone. The Drudge Report is a go-to website for the Conservative movement, and the source for most of the far-right paranoia in this country. Mitt Romney himself admitted that Drudge is his favorite website.

So exactly what kind of fake news is Drudge pushing? Well, things like how the President secretly worked for the CIA in Pakistan. And, how Andrew Breitbart was secretly assassinated. And, how the President is going to hunt down Conservative journalists in his second term. Oh, and, how Bill Ayers paid for Barack Obama’s college education. Matt Drudge – doing his part to dumb down the electorate just ahead of the November election, and our nation is worse off because of it.
