Shane Richmond responds to last week’s New York Observer article on the allegedly waning influence of the Drudge Report.
Looking at its audience, impact and design, Richmond argues that the news aggregator, which broke the media blackout on Price Harry’s deployment to Afghanistan, still has its edge:
“For his audience, Drudge is a kind of search engine but one that has already answered their question,” he writes.
“It’s a simple idea, executed brilliantly. The Drudge Report is a page of search results, handpicked for an audience its author knows well.”
