Hillary Campaign in Bed with Drudge

Okay, or at least working with them. Remember the Drudge Report splashed into public consciousness as a source for news that percolated (or barfed up) into the "mainstream media" when Matt Drudge posted the first news of the Monica Lewinsky scandal. Now the New York Times reports on the co-dependence of Drudge and Hillary Clinton. Drudge says, "I need to be part of her world. That's my bank." And former Democratic National Committee employee now working for the Clinton campaign, Tracy Sefl is planting Clinton driven and favorable reports (even if inaccurate) on the Drudge Report.

Some might believe that this is pragmatism. To me, honoring and respecting such a man with such a site is a further poisoning of the civic realm and compromise of principles.
