    The Drudge Report, a 14-year-old site — a relic by Web standards — conceived and operated by Matt Drudge. Using data from the Nielsen Company to examine the top 21 news sites on the Web, the report suggests that Mr. Drudge, once thought of as a hothouse flower of the Lewinsky scandal, is now more powerful in driving news than the half-billion folks on Facebook. (According to the study, Facebook accounted for 3.3 percent of the referrals to news sites, less than half as many as generated by The Drudge Report.)

    So the left is now admitting that the Drudge Report is a powerful source of info.

    About a billion people use Drudge as their home page. It's instant headlines. Facebook does not enjoy that advantage. Facebook has to be navigated.

    Or they're trying to infer that Drudge is about as serious a news source as FaceBook.

    Which sounds more like something the Libs would try to do.

    The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

    Who goes to Facebook to get news?

    I don't spend a ton of time there, but I'll occasionally see a news link that might interest me. But I've usually already seen it on one of the sites that I frequent anyway.

    This from the same pack that believes Jon Stewart is a valid news source?
