The Pot or the Kettle?

The NYT has a feature on Wonkette that opens with a zinger...

First With the Scoop, if Not the Truth


When the notoriously unreliable Drudge Report blared the stunning headline in February that Senator John Kerry had had an affair with a woman on his staff, the gossip columns in Washington's newspapers did not print a word.

I used to read Drudge all the time. After a while, the intentionally misleading headlines wore thin with me. I haven't looked at his page in many months, other more information rich blogs do well to keep my news jones fufilled.
