So many people rely on the Drudge Report as their go to news source. For those people they would most likely miss the biggest news story of the day:
Romney aide loses cool, curses at press in Poland
The traveling press secretary for Mitt Romney lost his cool and cursed at reporters who attempted to ask questions of the Republican presidential candidate in a public plaza near the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Warsaw Tuesday.
After Romney paid his respects to Poland's war dead and shook hands with a small gathering of the nation's military veterans, the GOP contender walked approximately 100 yards away from the memorial as he chatted with Warsaw's mayor.
I'm not going to analyze this blowup. If you want tons of reaction, Memeorandum is the place to go right now with over 47 links to various blogs and news sites discussing this blowup.
What I want to talk about is Matt Drudge and his Drudge Report. Far too often we hear that he is the go to news source. If that's the case, then why is it that three hours after this story broke, Drudge has not mentioned it once? You can't say he hasn't heard the story, and if so then his title of king aggregator of news is highly over-stated.
The only logical explanation for this miss of a top news story is that it's bad for Romney. Drudge has been working hard this cycle to carry the torch for Mitt. When the primary was in full swing, Drudge would even ignore stories that made Romney look bad, but push every little story about his opponents.
