Drudge is another of the ilk of Howard Stern, Rush Limbaugh and Geraldo 
who think journalism is entertainment. They don't confirm stories like 
real journalists and they don't care what trash they print as long as it 
gets them ratings. 'Reporters' like these and others who repeat their 
stuff uncritically will eventually destroy free speech, simply by 
rendering it worthless. The schlockmeisters will tout it as another 
triumph of the free market, and the rest of us will wonder why the hell 
no one believes anything anymore.
