Today Drudge ran a picture of Marco Rubio Photoshopped to make him look like a dwarf with the caption "The Incredible Shrinking Candidate." It linked to a hit piece at Bloomberg which ignored Rubio's huge lead in early Florida voting and two polls showing him dramatically gaining in his home state to talk about the strong odds against his managing to become "competitive" there.

Drudge's shilling for Donald Trump has eliminated any illusion of the site as a work of journalism. The case was always dicey, and it's become unsupportable.

In the past I've relied heavily on Drudge, mostly because it's a place where one can readily find links to provocative stories. No more.

I think the quality of this blog will go up in the future as I avoid Drudge and look elsewhere for blog material.
