Despite allegations Matt Drudge sold his news aggregator site “The Drudge Report,” the founder of the site’s leading competitor insisted that Drudge “has not sold his website” and “is still running the site.”
The founder of the competitor site, “Kane” from Citizen Free Press, gave a world exclusive interview to The National Pulse describing the methodology, ideology, and growth behind his chart-topping site.
During the interview, Kane revealed he believes “Matt Drudge has not sold his website” and “can confirm Matt Drudge is still running that site.”

“He obviously was in Trump’s corner, and he’s no longer there,” he added.
