Matt Drudge is one of the most famous and trending commentator and Journalist in whole world right now. Matt Drudge was born on October 27, 1966 in Takoma Park, Maryland, U.S. He was born as Matthew Nathan Drudge, but best known as Matt Drudge.
His father, Robert Drudge, a former social worker who owns the reference site refdesk.com and his mother, a former staff attorney for U.S. Senator Ted Kennedy, divorced when he was six. His parents follow Reform Judaism. Both are Democrats who worked for the federal government, and he is their only child. In his book Drudge Manifesto, Drudge says that he “failed his Bar Mitzvah”, and graduated 341st out of a class of 355 from Northwood High School in 1984, giving himself, in his words, a “more than adequate curriculum vitae for a post at 7-Eleven”.
He was unknown before he began the news aggregation site, the Drudge Report. For many years, he took odd jobs such as night counterman at a 7-Eleven convenience store, telemarketer for Time-Life books, McDonald’s manager, and sales assistant at a New York City grocery store. In 1989, he moved to Los Angeles, where he took up residence in a small Hollywood apartment. They were distributed as an email newsletter and posted to alt.showbiz.gossip Usenet forum. In 1996, the newsletter transitioned slowly from entertainment gossip to political gossip and moved from email to the Web as its primary distribution mechanism.
In March 1995, the Drudge Report had 1,000 email subscribers; by 1997, Drudge had 85,000 subscribers to his email service. Drudge’s website gained in popularity in the late 1990s after a number of stories which he reported before the mainstream media. Drudge first received national attention in 1996 when he broke the news that Jack Kemp would be Republican Bob Dole’s running mate in the 1996 presidential election. In 1998, Drudge gained popularity when he published the reporting of then Newsweek reporter Michael Issikoff, becoming the first media outlet to publish the news that later became the Monica Lewinsky scandal.
In June 1998 to November 1999, Drudge hosted a Saturday night television show called Drudge on the Fox News Channel. The show ended by joint consent. Drudge had refused to go on air, charging Fox News with censorship when the network prevented him from showing photos of surgery on Samuel Armas. He hosted a Sunday night talk radio show – “The only time anyone will let me on the air,” he claimed. The show, which was also named the Drudge Report, was syndicated by Premiere Radio Networks. He guest hosted for the conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh. Drudge gained notice in the early 2000s by becoming a frequent reference for news material on Limbaugh’s, Sean Hannity’s, and Mark Levin’s radio shows. He was often acknowledged by Michael Savage as a source of topics for The Savage Nation. Lynn Samuels, for a time, served as Drudge’s call screener.
In their 2006 book The Way To Win, Mark Halperin and John Harris report that Republican National Convention chairman Ken Mehlman “kind of brags” (as CNN host Howard Kurtz puts it) about utilizing the Drudge channel. They also wrote that “Drudge, with his droll Dickensian name, was not the only media or political agent whose actions led to John Kerry’s defeat. But his role placed him at the center of the game.
He is the founder of the Drudge Report, a popular news website best known for announcing the Monica Lewinsky scandal to the American public. His Drudge Report opted to publish the breaking news story of President Bill Clinton’s affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky after Newsweek opted out of printing the developing story.
He has been called “the Walter Cronkite of his era” by Mark Halperin and John F. Harris, and “the country’s reigning mischief-maker” by Todd Purdum of The New York Times.
He has more than 591k followers on his Twitter. Now he ranked in the list of most popular American commentator and journalist.Read Full Biography Wikipedia
