Matt Drudge gets to indulge his inner Graham Greene
Our Man in Havana
Our Man on the Internet
I wouldn't link to Media Matters if you paid me so you'll have to make do with the following blurb at the Daily Beast, which quotes the MM hit job, or today's Drudge Report. In brief:
The Drudge Report, the right-wing news-aggregator, has linked to Russian propaganda websites nearly 400 times since 2012, according to a new study by
progressive watchdog group[Soros flunkies] Media Matters.
While the study found that Drudge promoted dozens of Russian propaganda articles each year, the number of linked articles increased to 79 at the start of the U.S. presidential race in 2015. The figure jumped in 2016 to 122 articles, which covered a wide range of U.S. and international topics that fit Kremlin interests. So far this year, Drudge has promoted only 45 Russian propaganda-outlet articles.Matt is obviously having a good time with the story. But he forgot to set the briefcase on the bench.
Our Man In Havana (1958) is a novel [and 1959 film] set in Cuba by the British author Graham Greene. He makes fun of intelligence services, especially the British MI6, and their willingness to believe reports from their local informants.********
