Substance Meets Swankiness

a: Drudge report ~
b: the love child of 2 disperate peoples

What: "Matt Drudge is a sort of spiritual protege of Walter Winchell (1897-1972). He even poses like Winchell over a microphone wearing a dark fedora, the signature attire of the mid-20th Century American newspaperman slash gossip columnist whose syndicated articles were once read by fifty million people worldwide, until he moved too close to the fire around Joe McCarthy and got burned. The Drudge Report is like a child born to a casual encounter between The National Enquirer and The Christian Science Monitor. Part tabloid. Part respectable."
