More Drudge Watch
If you go to the Drudge Report right now, you'll see a link with the headline "STANDING OVATION FOR RUMSFELD IN DC". If you read the linked article, nowhere does it mention Rumsfeld receiving a standing ovation at today's Memorial Day commemorations. If you do a Google News search for Rumsfeld+standing+ovation, it returns 0 articles about today, but several that detail standing ovations he received in addressing West Point graduates last Saturday, the Baghdad Town Hall two and a half weeks ago, and a Pentagon Employees Town Hall Meeting three weeks ago. Not exactly hostile audiences though, were they?
Remember, Drudge and his site are part of the annoying voice that is this country's extreme Wrong Wing. It is where millions of people a day go as part of their news collection process. Sad that he treats his audience with such contempt as to brazenly make shit up to support his skewed views.
RETRACTION: The not-biased-at-all New York Post is the (sole) source that apparently proves me wrong.
