    I think it is the best of the right-wing websites. I check it occasionally.

    I've designated it as my home page, so it's the first thing I see when I go on line.

    Drudge may be somewhat conservative, but I wouldn't call his site right-wing.

    KenH, why do you think it is?

    1. When Matt Drudge used to have his radio show on Sunday nights I would listen to it quite a bit. Actually, it might be more accurate to consider him libertarian than right-wing. However, I think it is fair to say that the vast majority of the people who go to his website are quite conservative. I remember he would have a poll up after the Obama-McCain debates for folks to vote who won and McCain would get something like 65-75% of the votes.

    Matt Drudge specializes in rumor, not a good fact-checker, and those who use his site as a news site are going to be bit once in a while.

    Isn't his site just a listing of news articles? It's his blog that I would consider biased.

    Yeah, I check his website everyday. Always has a good compiled list of articles that interest me.

    I love the design too - I prefer simplicity.

    Who doesn't love a good siren or two when a big article gets posted on the top of the page too ... right???

    I didn't know he had a blog though ..
