Drudge Compared to the Enquirer

I didn't think it was possible for a site that just links you to other stories to be considered a tabloid but the LA Times thinks so.

A curious thing is at play here, Seglin continues. Few people expect TMZ or Drudge or the National Enquirer to get things right or to report on issues of substance. When they do, at least so far, its a bit of an anomaly. So the consequences for getting it wrong among such sites do not seem terribly high. If CNN, Fox got such things wrong, the consequences would likely be higher. That said, Fox News didnt take as big a hit as it might have after it was revealed that the reports it filed on Sarah Palin not knowing Africa was a continent were based on a hoax.

How would we have reacted if TMZ had been wrong about Michael Jackson's death? | Comments Blog | Los Angeles Times

Drudge has finally met the Obama media machine, of seeking and destroying through massive media blitzes and constant condescending/disparaging negative talking points.

Drudge brought down Clinton. I am sure he can do it to Chairman Maobama too.

That's exactly what I thought when I saw the title of the thread.

No worse than the Huffington Post. Oh wait throw them in the Enquirer category. They have yet to publish anything of substance.
