Behind the Scenes at the Drudge Report

The Drudge Report is an addiction for me. I probably check it at least 10 times a day. The site links to various news around the web, often things overlooked by the mainstream media (like when it broke the Lewinsky story and this picture of John Kerry). The Drudge Report gets 3 million unique visitors a month, giving Matt Drudge great influence on the public and what stories the media covers. The New York Times has an article about politicians efforts to get favorable coverage that I think is interesting. The NYT reports that Hillary is stepping up her efforts by giving hot tips and that Romney has been the most successful of the GOP front runners at getting on Drudge's good side.
