Unfortunately, it is the price one pays for democracy and freedom of speech.

There is no law to prevent that feckwit doing what he did, just the knowledge that it is morraly bankrupt.

If I were you, I would get a plane ticket, find out where he lives and curl one out on his doorstep. But you get arrested for that.

Life - just ain't fair, is it?

Seriously though - you can't unless he has broken the law - which he hasn't.

Can't we plant some dodgy anti-Muslim cartoons on his site?

Or claim he's called his pet hamster Muhammed?

Drudge is American, so they could show anything as long as it's not illegal, ie child porn, rape, murder ect.

Drudge is mostly nothing more than a collection of links to other stories trawled from other sources.

Drudge was just a loser with a PC until he got lucky by breaking the Monica Lewinski/Bill Clinton story.

All he did was recycle the story broken by an Aussie bottom feeding Celeb publication ( & read exclusively by mongs so before that nobody noticed) that was not included in the embargo agreement.

Actually it is quite amazing the news blackout lasted as long as it did.

I,m a great advocate of Press Freedom, so, that being the case would Mr Drudge please print my riposte to his "Outing of Prince Henry.

Mr Drudge, you are Sir, nothing more than a Journalistic Whore and a thouroughbred Mongrel, you understand nothing of Honour or the ethic of Service not Self, His Royal Highness is a serving Soldier, sworn under his Oath Of Aliegence to serve Her Majesty, Her Heirs and Successors, and the Officers set over him. Have you ever tried it? I think probably not sir, the very idea must be anathema to you and your scribbling ilk. I have nothing but the most utter contempt for your efforts to generate Dollars with your miserable "Scoop", be damned to you sir, you and and your house, may the fleas of a thousand camels infest your beard, and your wifes. I bid you good day, you ink stained slag

We should be careful what we wish for. Here's the Govt's chief IT geek on the Internet:

I think the Internet — the Web — is a truly wonderful invention, which has dramatically moved society forward around the world. We need to be careful it doesn't become the Wild West though. And I'm surprised that the ICT industry hasn't come up with a mechanism that broadly says, every ISP connecting into the World Wide Web is a certified ISP — to begin to take off the spam the porn, and the unpleasant things that go onto the Web. Because rolling the plot forward 20 years, without a shadow of a doubt, ISPs will be providing a part of every country's basic infrastructure — telephone traffic and every medium will be on the Internet. And yet you see children being exploited; you see identity theft; you see fraud; you see stuff on there of the most horrific nature. We would not allow that in any other walk of life of our society, yet we allow it in terms of the Internet.

So if I could wave a magic wand, I would get all of the ISPs around the world together, and say first of all, you have to be certified to be an ISP. First of all, whenever you connect up, you'll be validated to be providing the latest firewalls, the latest anti-spam and so on. And by the way, if we see just one dodgy bit of dealing from you, you're disconnected from the club. You can't get on unless you're certified.

But just as I see directors being banned from holding company directorships because they can't run an effective company, or they don't do things in an appropriate manner, I'll expect to see that from an ISP perspective. Because it will become so fundamental to worldwide success going forward, I think we need to get our act sorted out.
He's proposing the nanny internet. Where am I going to get my Danish cartoons from if he gets his way?

Matthew Drudge is a king-sized, 24K, fur-lined, oceangoing cnutflap who blogs like a twelve-year-old Ritalin patient and can only maintain relevance post-Clinton by sucking neocon c0ck on his site.

You can't shut him down, unfortuately, but you can shower him with profusely grateful and descriptive emails. See Raggedy's for a template.

i am all for the freedoms enjoyed by the media but there comes a time when you are left speechless by the sheer mindblowing idiocy of the grudge report. At the end of the day all he has achieved is a lttle 10 seconds of fame and deprived our troops of a capable officer who has saved the lives of others. Freedom of speech yes but not at the expediency of lives.
