Possible censorship/retaliation from the left? Matt Drudge is a well known journalist, and for him to tweet something like this is no joke.



A tweet from conservative media icon Matt Drudge's verified Twitter account Thursday night appeared to accuse the government of interfering with his website, DrudgeReport.com, just hours after the Barack Obama administration announced new sanctions against Russia over election hacking.

"Is the US government attacking DRUDGE REPORT? Biggest DDoS since site's inception. VERY suspicious routing [and timing]," the tweet to Drudge's 457,000 followers read. There were no other tweets from the account at the time. Read Full Article @US Government Attacks Drudge Report? Conservative Website Down Because Of Distributed Denial Of Service Attack, Matt Drudge Tweets


(Tweet is still up at this time on his Verified twitter Account.)



If it can happen to him it can happen to anyone. Right on time as Obama:

NYtimes: Obama Strikes Back at Russia for Election Hacking

Thoughts ATS?
Edit:



UPDATE: ATTACK ON DRUDGEREPORT.COM LASTED 90 MINS...

I really hope it isn't the US gov doing it. I'm sad to say I wouldn't totally be surprised.

Don’t take it seriously, its drudge stunt. His page reloads every 30 sec. or so and of course adding the amounts of people who are already there every 30 sec.

Statistically speaking this simple trick makes people goes on the site to check out… and be added to the amount of visitors!


Simple trick from a well-known yellow journalist!

It's the military hacking Matt Drudge, protecting us from Russian propaganda! doh....


In reality this commercial is backa$$ backwards. The real hackers.... is the shadow government! Probably doing a militarized cyber test run on the Drudge Report. They will be the first to go down.......... then ATS etc...

So any random DDOS equals US GOVERNMENT!!!!!! I bet these people have never heard of Lizard Squad.

A DOS attack is easy to trace. A DDOS attack is not. For Matt to implicate the Government is a serious thing IMO.

Then again, I would be surprised to learn later the DHS was involved. That is one corrupt organization.

That's right, the country that created Stuxnet and infected thousands of computers knowing that eventually an infected USB stick would be transferred to overheat centrifuges is now running a denial of service on a blog, and failed at it.

LOL

Well I guess the fact that there was PROOF that DHS did it and none that Russia did makes me crazy then.

Thw Cowboys winning the Super Bowl in 2016 is the only thing that could make this year better…

Granted the inauguration and Super Bowl won't technically occur till 2017 I still consider them to be 2016 victories...

But even if the Cowboys don't make it to the Super Bowl, let alone win it, my year has already been set…

The 2016 presidential election is the gift that keeps on giving…

I come on here every day to read liberal whining and read about Obamas tactics[read tantrums] to stave off his policies' impending extinction...

Y'all need to think about the panic President Obama it is going through right now…

His signature accomplishments like the affordable care act and his enumerable [anti] energy policies enacted through legislation, executive orders and informal edicts will be completely ERASED within trumps first 100 days…

He will be resigned to a parentheses in the American annals of presidential history…

This is a terrifying prospect for narcissist such as Obama review some self as the socialist icon of the age…

None of these investigations will amount to anything…
The silent majority has awoken once again and y'all should view this story as I do: one more comical last grasp by the American left to hold onto the power they once had…

The age of progressivism and liberalism is over in America…

At least for now thank God..

And being right wing is wrong how? Your intolerance is showing. yes he is a journalist, better than 99% of them. Drudge is the last haven for free speech. If he goes down we all go down.

While you view the right wing as bad. I see the left as nazi leftist uniting forces with a former nazi collaborator George Soros, a man who helped murder Jews back in ww2. So yes, I would rather associate myself with the right wing who happens to be americana.


The Left Wing's Leader is THIS MAN.
