Drudge wrote a book with Julia Phillips in 2000 titled Drudge Manifesto. It reached the New York Times Best Seller list. The book features a transcript of a Q&A session conducted at the National Press Club on June 2, 1998, which lays out Drudge’s raison d’être. It also contains copies of e-mails sent to Drudge by his readers, dialogues between Drudge and his cat, and extensive descriptions of parties Drudge has attended and how the celebrities there reacted to him. A review in the Washington Post said “Indeed, while Drudge Manifesto runs 247 pages … Which leaves, in the end, 112 pages of new material, including nine pages of poetry.” A review from the Columbia Journalism Review, said: “By any standard, Drudge’s book is padded,” and: “It is a weird, stream-of-conscious mixture of telling readers how he got his stories and mocking his critics.”

Facts & Trivia

Ranked on the list of most popular Journalist. Also ranked in the elit list of famous celebrity born in United States. Matt Drudge celebrates birthday on October 27 of every year.

In 1998, Drudge claimed that his politics are “libertarian except for drugs and abortion.” In a 2005 interview with The Sunday Times Drudge described his politics “I’m not a right-wing Republican. I’m a conservative and want to pay less taxes. And I did vote Republican at the last election. But I’m more of a populist.”

From June 1998 to November 1999, Drudge hosted a Saturday night television show called Drudge on the Fox News Channel. The show ended by joint consent. Drudge had refused to go on air, charging Fox News with censorship when the network prevented him from showing photos of surgery on Samuel Armas. Drudge, who is anti-abortion, wanted to use a picture of a tiny hand reaching out from the womb to dramatize his argument against late-term abortion, but Fox’s John Moody decided that that would be misleading because the photo was not of an abortion but an emergency operation on the fetus for spina bifida. Fox News alleged breach of contract but, after Drudge issued an apology, Fox issued a statement calling the parting “amicable.”

In 2001, Drudge told the Miami New Times that “I am a conservative. I’m very much pro-life. If you go down the list of what makes up a conservative, I’m there almost all the way.”

The Daily Telegraph has described Drudge as a conservative populist. In 2002 Drudge described himself as “Free from any Corporate Concerns”.
