    I want him to be irrelevant, but I don't think that  he is... yet.

    My point about pushing this epic fail (now over 1.5 hrs later!) is that failures like this will only hasten the fall from his so-called position as "America's Assignment Editor."

    I still find it true that if Drudge pushes a story it will catch on.  Any number of side interest stories on his site will, within 24 hrs, make it almost everywhere else. It's still enviable.

    Nonetheless, the cornerstone behind so much of his success and power was not his Right-Wing Noise Machine Parroty, but rather his ability to break news before other major outlets could.

    That's why epic failures like this bring down his stature within all of the newsrooms of the MSM and only help out the MSM as they look to other places for new assignment leads.
