Sludge Report (Drudge Report nickname)

The Drudge Report is a news aggregation website that was founded in 1995 by Matt Drudge. Some critics have called it the “Sludge Report.” “There’s also ‘The Drudge Report,’ which more appropriately might be called ‘The Sludge Report’” was printed in The Daily Oklahoman (Oklahoma City, OK) on August 21, 1997.

The website began as conservative, but many conservatives noticed a shift in focus in 2017, after the presidential election of Donald Trump. “THE SLUDGE REPORT: Here’s the REAL REASON why Matt Drudge has become ANTI TRUMP” was the title of a YouTube video by The Josh Bernstein Show on November 8, 2019.


Wikipedia: Drudge Report
The Drudge Report is a conservative news aggregation website. Run by Matt Drudge with the help of Charles Hurt and Daniel Halper, the site consists mainly of links to news stories from other outlets about politics, entertainment, and current events; it also has links to many columnists. Occasionally, Drudge authors news stories himself, based on tips.

The Drudge Report originated in 1995 as a weekly subscriber-based email dispatch.

There’s also “The Drudge Report,” which more appropriately might be called “The Sludge Report.” It’s a one-man operation conducted by an unscrupulous gossipmonger, Matt Drudge, whose stock in trade is rumors.

Sludge Report parody

After reading a couple articles in The Drudge Report, I couldn’t believe how unprofessionally it’s written. Sources aren’t named, places aren’t specified, and entire situations seem to have been created out of thin air without any questioning from the Right about whether it’s true or not.

Therefore I decided to write my own parody—The Sludge Report.

@mtlb Sludge Report - I’m sure that’s a common nickname - just never heard it. Very fitting.

In reporting on Nino Scalia death, The Drudge Report is living up to nickname Bill Clinton once gave it, “The Sludge Report.”

60 Million plus #PresidentTrump supporters are wondering why seemingly out of nowhere #MattDrudge has taken a sharp anti Trump stance on his website the #DrudgeReport?
Like all of you I really want to know so I did what I always do, lots of research. You are all probably wondering like I was. Well, wonder no more because I’m about to give you the answer… #GraniteCubed #RefDesk #BobDrudge #MargaretOtto #AdrianOtto #JoshBernsteinShow
