He objected to Rock's particular sense of humor for making jokes about Bush, abortion, and gays, and while calling it humor also cited it as social commentary.( Isn't that humor?)

Hannity: Did you talk to Chris Rock for this story. Did you get in touch with him?

Drudge: No, because there's simply enough out there.

When Colmes asked him if he was using his website to try and get Rock removed:

Drudge: Oh, I don't know....

Colmes: ..do you have an agenda?

Drudge: No, I don't...I..I..I...

There's a lot in this interview that I'm not commenting on. What's appalling is Drudge taking Rock's statements out of context. This is clearly an orchestrated move. I only hope that the Oscar's and Rock don't cave in to the pressure that he and his followers will try and apply.
