Politico – Ted Cruz accused the Drudge Report of transforming into “an attack site” for Republican front-runner Donald Trump’s campaign in the past month, telling a conservative radio host this week that Drudge just promotes “whatever the Trump campaign is pushing that day.”

A POLITICO analysis of more than 300 Drudge banners this year reveals that Cruz has a strong argument: Matt Drudge’s conservative aggregation site has largely pushed banner pieces publicizing Trump favorably and in recent days either criticizing or deriding Cruz, a stark shift from 2015, when he appeared to be ambivalent toward the billionaire businessman.

    This is exactly why I deleted the Drudge Report and refuse to visit it. I did the same with Breitbart and I will not go to Fox. They lost their credibility for being unbiased populist Trump supporters. I’ll give them a chance again later, if I find out that they get it right.

    Wow. That’s disgusting! Matt Drudge is Jewish, paired with his attacks on Roger Stone and “New York Values” Cruz starts to look pretty antisemetic to non-Neocon Jews. Cruz lies, a lot, Drudge does not. Oh by the way EVERY SINGLE other media outlet favors “anyone but Trump” and the entire media has been attacking Trump to no end from all sides that Matt Drudge must be up to something if he isn’t joining in the mob who favors a political class and corporate interests.

      The Drudge is Jewish is immaterial. So is Bernie Sanders and that is immaterial. Regarding Ted Cruz, according to Alan Dershowitz, Ted Cruz was a brilliant student and a pleasure to have in class. Ted Cruz’ best friend in law school was black.Half of his high school friends were Jewish. When Ted Cruz said “New York values” all of us immediately knew that he meant: “New York Times values”. The values that Donald Trump cited as New York values are those of the heartland of America – – the bravery of the first responders, the resilience of the people. This is derided by the blue Coast liberals.

        Whatever you say boss. Just to be clear you are a huge neocon lost in a changing world, good luck with that! Cruz is unelectable everyone knows it and I see you voting for Hillary which means you aren’t even really republican. Ted Cruz lies all the time, he was born in Canada and he’s a lawyer married to a Goldman Sachs CFR JP Morgan executive, I think that says it all. Ted Cruz has a college roomate who will not give up on exposing him as a creep. We must elect the President we would want in our family and I would only want the Orange one in mine he’s a really good guy.
