WASHINGTON, May 18, 2014 – Matt Drudge has flown the Twitter coop, removing all of his no-more than 140 characters messages and leaving just one 77 character message to his 276,000 Twitter followers:

and a leader board picture of two necking love birds leaving Drudge followers perplexed over where the news headline aggregator is going and why he felt the need to scrub his Tweets?

Is it:

        1. Persecution by the Obama administration for his conservative viewpoint and outspoken position against Obamacare?
        2. Like David Letterman, he is feeling remorse for his treatment of Monica Lewinsky who blames Matt Drudge and the Drudge Report for her “global humiliation.”“Thanks to the Drudge Report, I was also possibly the first person whose global humiliation was driven by the Internet,” she wrote.
        3. Like Bill Gates when he met Melinda, Matt Drudge is seeking his kinder, gentler side?
        4. Or has Drudge been given a clear enough picture that the FCC, propelled by the Obama Administration, is studying conservative media, monitoring newsrooms, announcing:“a Multi-Market Study of Critical Information Needs last year, saying that it wanted to understand the process of which stories are selected, station priorities, content production, populations served, perceived station bias and perceived percent of news dedicated to each of the “critical information needs” in a community (Fox News Insider)

Watchers of the Drudge Report page may have noticed an ongoing subtle shift away from the conservative politically driven headlines that have made the Drudge Report a must have link for success.

    I’d like to believe it’s number five but, in this day and age… it’s probably number four.

    Not a fan of the past Monica Lewinsky “too many details” coverage but noting 2 key points
    1. Monica was a willing participant in the Clinton/Lewinsky antics…unlike a number of women claiming Clinton harassed them sexually…
    2. Perhaps Monica’s “humiliation” helped some of these women get the courage to speak out…and defend themselves…

    • thinkingabovemypaygrade

      remembering the various women claiming that Pres. C hit on them…(the media seemed to mainly mock and sneer at them…) Noting that Bill Clinton will have time on his hands this time in the White House… if his wife gets elected President…
