Drudge

DRUDGE….From Time’s Karen Tumulty, traveling with Barack Obama in the Middle East:

Some of the reporters traveling with Obama were surprised upon landing to discover their editors in something of a frenzy. The reason: Drudge is using terms like “chaos” and “mob scene” to describe Obama’s visit early this morning to the Western Wall. But that’s not the way the pool saw it. (When I asked pooler Jeff Zeleny of the NYT about the Drudge version, he was puzzled and conferred with the other poolers and emailed me back: “No mob scene. Not even close.”)

I know this is a naive question and all that, but jeebus. Are these guys ever going to stop letting Drudge lead them around by their nose rings? What’s it going to take?
