Matt Drudge, “Assignment Editor For The National Press Corps”

So, there’s this Politico story about Matt Drudge, which we of course saw on Drudge Report not Politico. It discusses Drudge’s staying power, his continued influence and his emergence “as more of a threat to the Republican [McCain] than to the Democrat [Obama]…a matter of open alarm to Republican strategists and surprised satisfaction to Democrats.” The story also notes Drudge’s role as inveterate framer of the news cycle:

“He serves as an assignment editor for the national press corps. If he has a story up, you know the cable networks are going to cover it all day,” said Kevin Madden, who was Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney‘s campaign press secretary during the GOP primary.
