The infamous Drudge Report (www.drudgereport.com) is nothing more than a hand picked aggregate of links to news stories from trusted sources around the globe with rare exclusive news reports of questionable reliablity. However, this minimalist site, The Drudge Report, is gaining a growing following because they don't shy away from the important issues.

No problem, visit the Drudge Report Archives (www.drudgereportarchives.com) for links to every headline they've run since November 18, 2001. It is noteworthy to mention that fact that Drudge Report Archives are not owned, operated or maintained by Matt Drudge, the owner of Drudge Report.

On the go? Get the mobile version of the Drudge Report at idrudgereport.com. Including all the links and images of the original site but optimized for the smaller screen, there is no reason to suffer with the original site on your mobile device.
There are also a few enterprising individuals who have created free and low cost iPhone apps for Drudge but none of these seem to be issued by the owner of the Drudge Report, Matt Drudge. Use them at your own risk.
If you are a fan of RSS feeds, prepare to be a bit disappointed. The Drudge Report does not offer an RSS feed. Drudge Report Archives do offer two RSS feeds, Recent Headlines which is only updated at midnight and Popular Headlines which is updated every three hours.

Rare Interview with Matt Drudge
Don't be fooled. Don't be confused. Simply type drudge.com into your web browser instead of drudgereport.com and you'll land on an almost identical looking site that could not be more different from the Drudge Report. The Drudge Retort is part parody and part left leaning liberal response to the more conservative news reported on the real Drudge Report. Another difference between the two sites is that Drudge Retort allows and encourages readers to post their own comments to the headlines.
