Matt Drudge, of course, is known as the single most influential traffic driver on the web, responsible for more daily hits than Google, Yahoo and Bing news combined. Not bad for a one man army.

Not sure if accurate. And I'm sure Matt Drudge is worried as hell about doomsday. Imagine how hard it will be to find other Republicans on the down low if most of the population is wiped out.

Always. Its how he makes his money - making other people believe the world is about to end.

It's his shtick.

If by "Doomsday" you mean anonymous gay sex.

I'm unlikely to believe a claim like that when the term "hits" is used in a way that implies that it is some sort of meaningful metric.

Should have made it clearer at first. He's the single most influential INDIVIDUAL and drives more traffic than Google, Yahho and Bing NEWS. I changed it... thanks for pointing it out... have a glass of Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale on me, mate!

Drudge influential? What year is this, 2006?

No, but I hear he smears egg on his body.

this is fark, not news, affecting the news?

/ mind blown.

Drudge links to UFO reports occasionally. Who wouldn't? Though I think the UFO report on the China/India border came from fark...or the LA times.

I read the UFO story he linked to. What was seen in SF on Sunday is EXACTLY what myself, two of my kids and several neighbors once spent almost an hour watching from my driveway one day. It was broad daylight and one of the kids asked wth is that? They looked like little squares at very high altitude (no way to know what the alt was though) they would line up in a straight line and just sit there, perfectly still, then form the diamond pattern and move before becoming lines again. One of my neighbors is an engineer for Lockheed and he was as dumbfounded as the rest of us. The perfectly geometric patterns kind of rule out natural phenomenon for me, but I'd bet on secret military tech before aliens.


Make sure you take enough cocaine to last you when you enter your doomsday shelter Matt.

Dear Fark:

Examiner.com is just a collection point for amateur journamalists to publish things that wouldn't make it onto a decent blog. Please don't link to the "stories" there.

Probably hobbyists screwing around with RC helicopters, and they were way closer than they looked.

I'm not saying Matt Drudge is at this very minute at Costco stocking up on lube and ramen noodles, but his rented uhaul and forklift says otherwise.

The same stories where also on Fark. Are Drew and the highly respected Matt Drudge the same person?

Of all the explanations offered, that has got to be the stupidest one. They were straight the fark up in the sky. Are you suggesting that is what people in SF saw? I think between the aerospace engineer and myself, a pilot, we would have caught that.

Who cares if he's gay?

Drudge has had UFO stories for years. This is not news.

In other news, pointing out hypocrisy is "bullying" - but only when Democrates do it.

"A video attached to the CBS report clearly shows the lights forming into a triangular shape. That would be nearly impossible without some intelligent control."

Correct me if I'm wrong, but don't any three points not arranged in a line make a "triangular shape"?

Sounds like the way kites would behave.

With the end of the world a mere nine days away, none of us have time to worry about Mat Drudge. Rather, we should concentrate our energies and limited time with hooking up three-ways.

One is a self hating, closet homosexual and the other just has a problem with epic friend selection and alcohol.

Don't know about Drew, but Drudge refreshes his page every few seconds and then seems to count that as a new hit. So, one person going over there becomes a multiple number of visits, depending on how long the cursor doesn't get pointed and clicked on a link.

Years ago there was a group of private pilots in eastern Pennsylvania who called themselves the "Thursday Night Club"

Thursday nights they would all take off after dark, join up in a Vee formation, turn on their landing lights and fly back and forth across the county a few times. Then they would land and giggle as they listened to the police scanners go crazy as scads of people would call in UFO reports.
 
2012-12-11 01:29:31 PM  
Love to visit Drudge for the laughs. I still do a double take when there is a straight forward Obama headline that is seemingly not inflammatory. Something like, "Obama visits someplace" or "Michelle in favour of fruits and vegetables." Then I realize that his audience is supposed to read it and think, 'Unbelievable! They're at it again!'.

It's not possible for me to show you what I saw, but it wasn't a kite. I can only say that I seem to have seen the daylight version of exactly what the people in SF saw.

abhorrent1: I don't get why this guy is so "influential". Also, his website looks like a farking nightmare.


Ever listened to conservative talk radio? Beck, Limbaugh, and dozens of lesser fish discuss 90% of the articles that appear on Drudge. The majority of their shows comes from the content he aggregates.

Seriously. Read Drudge one morning, familarize yourself with the articles, then listen to a conservative talk radio host comes on that afternoon. You'll see what I mean within an hour or so.

Drudge is the man driving the content of the conservative news cycle. Moreso than anyone else, at least.

He's not influential to anyone all and doesn't claim to be When was the last time you saw/heard him on radio or tv. His website is just links to media outlets and news stories with with the occasional rewritten goofy headline. He became famous because he linked the Monica story.

The same stories on Drudge show up later that day on Fark. There are no coincidences. Farkers are all closet Drudge readers.

RC helis can fly at several thousand feet, and if they had some sort of mylar reflectors on them, they could look like the "boxes" you're describing. I'm just applying a little Occam's Razor here; what's more likely, a hoax or secret military tech being tested over SF rather than over Nevada? I like the kite theory, too.
