Drudge got more respect from me when he actually broke stories (when's the last time he did that?) and when he wasn't having coffee klatches with Lucianne Goldberg & co.

Last week when he published the exit poll numbers comes to mind...

I stopped going there when he delinked NYPress and Mugger in a fit of pique over an article there on him that he disliked. Not only that he's got the same damn list of links as he did 2 years ago with the same 2 bloggers on file (Sullivan and Kaus). No Instapundit, nothin. For that matter, his list of links are not too unconommonly crashing. So in my book he's jumped the shark, though it may take awhile for this to become readily apparent. Still waiting for a reporterblog to replace him though. A little surprised one hasn't emerged just yet. Give it time.

Dont get me wrong, Drudge is a historical figure of major note, but blogs have passed him by. Lucianne, on the other hand has a format that is by its nature more interactive and dynamic even tho not, as yet, acknowledging blogs. We shall see if these two continue to exist in their (mostly) parallel universes from blogs.

I thought Kaus was a fairly recent addition. He still links to O'Reilly... hell, he links to Joe Conason - so he doesn't necessarily have to like you to link you.

Nobody in LA needs to read Drudge to find out what's on his site: they just have to watch "Good Day LA" on TeeVee next morning.
