After President Trump today tweeted "he gave up on Drudge", quite a lot of his responses claimed that Matt Drudge sold the Drudge Report and is under a Non-Disclosure Agreement. Here is a sample tweet. (There are many more - I have seen tons of similar claims. Just search "Drudge" on twitter.)
Matt Drudge no longer owns nor runs the Drudge Report.
A non-disclosure agreement was signed with the buyers and so no one was notified of the sale.
The political views of the new owners is obvious.
I never read it any more. https://t.co/5lMeQQkkfi— Nathan Simar (@squashpants) April 18, 2020
This claim has been circulating on Reddit as well.
News site Sparta Report claims that Drudge has been sold as well: https://www.spartareport.com/2019/12/breaking-drudge-report-appears-to-have-been-sold/
Disrn claims that Rasmussen has claimed this as well: https://disrn.com/news/rasmussen-on-drudge-report-we-dont-think-matt-is-there-anymore-word-is-he-sold-just-waiting-for-confirmation
Is this true? Did Matt Drudge sell the Drudge Report?
