Because ‘Trump happened,” we’re adding a Drudge-like aggregator to News Watch

Matt Drudge Pro-Trump

Over the years, the Drudge Report has been a go-to place for millions of conservatives, journalists, and fearful Democrats to check on a daily basis. Matt Drudge and his team have served the conservative movement and been one of the top aggregators of the news we all need to see.

Things have changed. Trump happened. Now, the site has turned into the ultimate Trump mouthpiece, disseminator of propaganda against Ted Cruz, and safe haven for Trumpeters to hide their eyes from the truth about their candidate. Strangely, the site has also become a bit more offbeat. This started happening before they became Trump’s pets; the stories shifted from hard-hitting political journalism to strange news that makes it seem more like Fark or Reddit than a place to find the news.

The staff at News Watch has agreed to fight back. If Drudge is going to be pro-Trump, we’re going to be the pro-Cruz alternative. Drudge gets millions of visitors per day. We get thousands. We’re not going to move the needle by making this move and the work that it takes to keep the links updated throughout the day is probably more trouble than it’s worth, but there’s no excuse at this point. The election is too important. Even if we reach 0.1% of what Drudge can reach, it’s worth the effort.

We will still be posting original content, of course. This is, after all, a conservative news blog that relies on patriotism and good editorial standards in order to keep our readers informed. However, we’ve decided to lead with the aggregator to make sure our visitors have a place where they can find the real news about Cruz and Trump.

We haven’t forgotten the liberals. Like Drudge, we’ll also be pointing out the fallacies of the left and highlighting their follies. In that regard, we’re in lockstep with Drudge.

We appreciate your support. Share us. Spread the word. Tell your pro-Cruz friends. We’re really hopeful that this can add a bit of help in a world with sites like Drudge, Breitbart, InfoWars, and other pro-Trump websites. Please go ahead and check out our homepage.

  1. Since the Clinton era, Drudge was my go-to. With the recent Trump insanity, I have removed it from my bookmarks. Thank you for an alternative! Will share.

  2. Drudge & Breitbart have lost me. Seemed the only places I could visit was Redstate or The Resurgent for anything positive on Cruz.
    Relief. I appreciate your drive to give us options.

  3. I would like to receive your articles through email or via FB. Thank you so much for interesting reads this morning. SO GLAD YOU ARE TAKING ON DRUDGE FOR BALANCED REPORTING!

  4. So glad you guys are counter balancing Drudge! They have really become a Trump sheet! I heard Trump had bought them off just like Bretbart. Any truth to this?

  5. Thank you!! I cannot tell you how disappointed I am in Matt Drudge… I honestly thought he would stand for conservative principles!! It is not the attacks on Cruz that bother me but it is the way he goes about it!! I used to have Drudge Report up all of the time and would just hit refresh… I avoid it now like the plague!!!

  6. I have been a Drudge Report follower since it’s inception- Matt has pissed me off for the last time. I”m in!!!

  7. I have been a Drudge Report follower since it’s inception. Matt Drudge has pissed me off for the last time!
    I’m In!!!

  8. I’m happy to find a site that fills the hole left by the rotting corpse of what Drudge and Breitbart used to be. Hat tip to one of the commenters at The Right Scoop!

  9. Awesome – I’m in – you’ll be on my desktop as long as you are Constitutional Conservative place period

  10. Don’t agree with you but I appreciate you putting it in those terms instead of just bashing Trump supporters which pro-Cruz sites are wont to do. I am glad you say you’re still unified with Drudge on anti-Left, but diverge on Trump-Cruz and that’s fine. Good luck to your website, I’ll be checking it out.

  11. I read your article at Red State and thought … FINALLY! I’ve checked out the Homepage, as well as several articles. Grateful for the work put into this project. I’ll be spreading the word about the site. God bless.

  12. This is great news! Now we be have ‘The rest of the story’ right at our fingertips! That way we can have the documentation to post in response to all the negative nonsense! Thank you, thank you!

  13. There’s also The Right Scoop and it is a Wonderful and sane Place to Talk with Smart Cruz Supporters. Folks on there are telling about This Place. I think it’s Great,…Because God Knows BB,Drudge, and the rest have just lost all sense of reason.

  14. Just added you to my home screen. will be a pleasure to have a site to visit that usn’t trump all the time….breibart…drudge..gateway pundit…ad f course Tucker’s site…..and the big kahuna… news….Hannity…boiling van sustern…and O’Reily..and the curvy couch folks….cannot stand anymore…do not watch…So a great big thank you To you all.

  15. The addiction “Drudge” has with the liberal Trump has caused me to look elsewhere for Conservative news. Bingo I have found your site. Thanks to CPF

  16. AWESOME! I can’t wait to read your work! Thank you for “doing the right thing”. #Nevertrump #CruzforPresident

    Thanks again,

  17. NEVER TRUMP!!! I would chew my arm off before I would vote for a Democrat, that’s why I can’t vote for Trump.

  18. Love it! But would you be able to switch your site’s font to a sans-serif font? It would make it immensely easier and more enjoyable to browse through the new aggregator section. Thanks!

  19. Glad to see this, and LevinTV. Great that conservatives still have places to get their news! It’s getting crazy out there. What an exposure of who supports what.

  20. I’m so glad I found this site! I checked drudge everyday but not so much anymore. It is very frustrating Drudge, Hannity, Breitbart, Ingraham and even at times Rush are all trumpets for the trumpster so much that I say to myself am I missing something, these are people I generally like, do I not get it? But then I listen to the “Great One” Mark Levin and most importantly my conscience and I realize I’m glad I voted for Cruz! God bless that man.

  21. The site slants Pro Cruz, but not as much as Drudge has gone Pro Trump. I began looking for alternatives to Drudge after I cast my vote in Colorado and then saw Drudge putting a flat out lie on his headline about the Colorado delegate vote.

    I have yet to see a pure lie posted here.

    I removed the Drudge bookmarks from my desktop and mobile devices, have been here for the aggregator since.

  22. Finally. I thought I was imagining things at first. It’s been really disappointing and sad to see how Drudge and Breibart have fallen. I don’t get it. Why trash your supporters? The money?
