In a revealing comment by Howard Kurtz, we find that the media wanted nothing to do with Allen's desperate attempt to slime Jim Webb, but as soon

drudge-matt1.jpg In a revealing comment by Howard Kurtz, we find that the media wanted nothing to do with Allen's desperate attempt to slime Jim Webb, but as soon as Drudge posted portions of his novels--the media went ga-ga.

via CNN's Reliable Sources:

KURTZ: All right. No dispute on that. Stephanie Miller, the Virginia Senate race took another strange turn the other day when you had Senator George Allen accusing his Democratic challenger, Jim Webb, of writing steamy sex scenes in novels. And the press release from the Allen campaign says the women were being portrayed as servile, subordinate,inept, incompetent, promiscuous, perverted, or some combination of these. My question to you is, apparently the Allen campaign had been peddling this line for weeks, reporters had not bit, and suddenly Matt Drudge puts out a big headline about it and everybody jumps on the story. What do you make of that?

I'll tell you what I make out of it. The media prays at the altar of Drudge no matter what sleaze he peddles. Yes–our liberal media in action!
