M$M upset at the Drudge Effect

About: NBC’s Chuck Todd Blasts -Drudge Driven Journalism-

Adapt & Evolve or end up on the evolutionary scrap heap !
Puter Boi (in the comments): ... I hate to say it…and I’m shocked that Chuck Todd doesn’t get it…..but the days when he and NBC or any of the “big news organizations” can decide what news “IS” are gone…they have been gone for a decade. I like Chuck, but his remarks in this interview just point out that he is treading water.
... It goes along with the NYTimes & ABC firing staff ... etc.

My question is what is going to happen when all the reporters go to the unemployment line? IMHO, that could set us up for mainlining government propaganda (as if we don't already have that from the M$M). Could anyone tell the difference? Then too it is dangerous to pass on the news in some places, especially if the government controls it!

Me thinks that this post gives Drudge too much credit.  Why call it the "Drudge Effect" ... it's not the "Drudge Effect", it's the "Internet's effect".  We are indeed in a brand new ball game where we are no longer dependent on a few channels to get our so called news and some of those channels are a whole lot more honest than Drudge.
    Like who? Google may pass most of the headlines through intact, but Drudge makes it more interesting. Google top headline choice can & often is miss-leading.  Then, too the original headline writers usually hype & miss-represent the content in the first place.  Drudge was the first & got famous with the Lewinsky-Clinton affair. It's a good coin. 
    Apparently nobody is interested in the Fastblogit Effect.

Here is a fascinating article in a Turkish daily about Internet news in that European/Middle Eastern country.
Hurryet - Daily News: ...  in Why I Should be Fired, jailed & Beheaded

An Islamic state?

As for me, not only am I not advocating an “Islamic state,” I am also strongly against it. Because all states which call themselves “Islamic” impose the version of Islam they choose. But I want to be able to make my own decision on what God really says. I also want other Muslims, along with secularists, non-Muslims, agnostics, atheists, new-agers, and whomever you can imagine, to be able to live in the way they chose. In modern societies, all such diverse groups and individuals have to live together, and the system which will allow that is not an “Islamic state,” but a secular one.

Yet a secular state is one thing, whereas secularism, as an ideology aimed at secularizing the society, is another. And while I support the former, I am against the latter, for it is simply yet another form of tyranny.

I haven't been to Drudge in months,  i've pretty much tuned out the political scene.  But even when i was tuned in, drudge didn't  set my agenda. Memeorandum was much more influential on me.  My point being that we each choose our news in the Internet age.  We are more likely now to become irritated when a channel does not reflect our current interest.  If you are more influenced by Drudge, then that's just fine, that is your choice.  No lack of alternative forced you into a channel, like it was back  before the 90's.

Drudge doesn't set my agenda either! I quit watching & visiting CNN online some time ago. The point you mentioned was summarized by the comment on the article - a reader of the original article.

OTOH, If I had not read Drudge this morning I would have missed this tasty morsel:

Wife's baby milk in chef's cheese recipe which was titled at
Drudge: NYC CHEF SERVING CHEESE MADE OF HIS WIFE'S BREAST MILK... ( a more accurate description because the former could have been baby formula)
~
Slurp!

The NYPost had reader comments which were mostly negative, but it raised the question in me?
Why is contemplating the thought of drinking human milk, designed for humans not better than drinking milk made by a cow animal or a goat or pig?

Mark de LA says
Apparently FoxNews picked up the mommy milk story here with more details.  Then chef Daniel Angerer's blog here gives most of the intimate details including this picture:
His blog is well done & has more than just mommy's milk recipes.
Google newsfront now has 256 articles on the subject!
