The Drudge Report is an aggregate news website that specializes in American politics, entertainment and current events and provides access to many opinion columns. It is widely regarded as a conservative-leaning news site.
Created by Matt Drudge in 1996, the Drudge Report began as a weekly email dispatch. The news site gained notoriety in 1998 when it became the first to report President Clinton's scandal involving Monica Lewinsky. Other notable articles include Prince Harry's involvement in the war in Afghanistan, questions and doubts regarding presidential nominee John Kerry's war record, White House assistant Sidney Blumenthal's alleged domestic abuse and an unsubstantiated report involving an illegitimate child between Bill Clinton and a former prostitute.
