Maybe some media folks recently on unemployment will pause and wonder if maybe they should be better people, and not try to destroy the lives of those they dont agree with. Being cancelled sucks, huh?

The Drudge Report is worse than BuzzFeed now. THIS is the top story. F-U . The rumors must be true. Drudge sold the site and sailed off into the sunset. Should have just shut it down and kept your integrity.
