GOV’T. GOING VIRAL OVER DRUDGE CHALLENGE TO THEIR NARRATIVE
http://pajamasmedia.com/rogerkimball/2010/03/10/going-viral-drudge-report-edition/Going Viral: Drudge Report edition
Uh oh: Some people in the U.S. House are getting ideas. Between March 1 and March 8 alone there were 244,347 people were exposed. Meanwhile, at the SenateÂ during that same period, the number was 149,967: thatâ€™s the number of times that The Drudge Report was accessed by people from the domain senate.gov that week.Â The White House is a smaller operation: 10,825 people from its domain accessed The Drudge Report that week.
What did they find out? Whatever it was, the pooh-bahs in the Senate are worried. The Senateâ€™s â€œofficial gatekeeper,â€Â a Foxnews report disclosed yesterday, has warned Senate staffers to avoid the site because they might learn something that upsets the ideological apple cart theyâ€™ve been pushing, er, because The Drudge Report is â€œresponsible for the many viruses popping up throughout the Senate.â€
Oh really?Â As the folks at Powerline observed, what we have here is a case of â€œobsession.â€ The problem with The Drudge Report is not that it is a source of malignant computer code. The problem is that it has been phenomenally successful at challenging the official Washington narrative.
The Official Washington Narrativeâ€”letâ€™s call it OWN for shortâ€”isnâ€™t the only game in town anymore. More and more, people are disowning OWN, in no small part because of Drudge and kindred initiatives.
That Senate Censor is right: Drudge is dangerous. Not because it spreads computer viruses but because it through it freedom has gone viral.
How rattled are the leaky powers that be? Hereâ€™s Nancy Pelosi explaining that â€œwe have to pass the health care bill so that you can find out what is in it.â€
Give it up, Nancy.
