Drudge's Influence

During the 2016 election season, Matt Drudge kept trying -- with some success -- to fuel mainstream media coverage of Hillary Clinton's alleged ill health, and of her alleged secet lesbian relationship, including Politico's "How Close are Huma Abedin and Hillary Clinton?" slideshow criticized as click-baity. 

Now Hill copies Trump's hair, OR NOT.

Perhaps Drudge should stick to aggregating content from others (often with revved-up headlines) rather than "report" -- as demonstrated by this 1999 "World Exclusive," which helped push a hoax into mainstream media.
