Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, June 19, 2019

That backstory, in true Trump-tabloid fashion, features the friendship between Mr. Falwell, his wife and a former pool attendant at the Fontainebleau hotel in Miami Beach; the family's investment in a gay-friendly youth hostel; purported sexually revealing photographs involving the Falwells; and an attempted hush-money arrangement engineered by the president's former fixer, Michael Cohen. The revelations have arisen from a lawsuit filed against the Falwells in Florida; the investigation into Mr. Cohen by federal prosecutors in New York; and the gonzo-style tactics of the comedian and actor Tom Arnold.

NYT no longer allows articles to be viewed in Incognito mode...is the article worth creating a free account to read?

I noticed that a few weeks ago. Guess I won't be reading NYT articles anymore, because I'm certainly not going to sign up. Won't miss anything that can't be found elsewhere in some form.

Also is occurring with the Washington Post. Goodbye, Wapo.

Nulli, is it because of the membership-only format of the newspapers or because you hate for trump's sleazy associates to be so accused? or both?

Stick to the nooner, stupid.

"Won't miss anything that can't be found elsewhere in some form."

Content to allow Fox News to supply him with all the news he needs.

Question. Why do you think real journalism should be free. We always paid for the newpaper, what has changed except the deliver system? Journalists need to earn a living just like the rest of us. When you want to get it for free, as per Fox News, then you allow them to tell you whatever they want you to think.

Not a surprise Falwell is a complete sleaze ball.

Evangelicals usually turn out to be when you kick over a few rocks.

You pay the online monthly subscription fees to read NYT and WaPo?

I'll bet you don't.

I'm not defending Nulli but I'll say this, I would be okay with a nominal fee. Especially one that covered several organizations but the price for the NYT and others you might as well buy a print subscription...

I don't read that many articles on any particular sight in a given month. I do read a lot across many sights though. BBC is free. If I pay for anything it's NPR. I have considered supporting the Guardian and a couple others though.

Worth it. But wait for them to run a semi-annual funding drive so you get a pair of socks as well as the good vibes from supporting public media.

I listen to NPR and BBC on Sirius in the car.

I hadn't heard this poorboy story. Sounds like rumors run amok.

Ayatrolla ClownSheik's link wasn't much help.

There is a fair amount of smoke surrounding this collection of individuals linked together. I want to see some of these rumored pictures to start showing up.

#14 Yeah, sounds like innuendo. This is a Spicy Nothingburger.

Gay sex scandal and Evangelical leaders go hand in hand.

Besides, after reading the NYT article, it looks like this is about Cruz losing Falwell's endorsement to Trump.

Well, they go something in something all right.

No innuendo.

I strongly believe Mike Pence is a pray the gay away "success story".

I never heard that, but that may be what Buttigeig is referring to when he says "I am fairly certain that we have already had a gay [vice?] President."

- I strongly believe

Is different from , 'I have evidence'. Like this story about the pool boy. It just seems like smearing.

All this immature nonsense is unnecessary. Just get serious about our country and make policy that Americans want and need.

Too many people running around trying to peek into windows.
