    Doesn't Matt Drudge have a ...um... "news" program on the Fox News Network? If anything, his website helps him generate publicity for his real money makers. Now, I personally feel that the FNC has the journalistic credibility of E!, but it does make a lot of money and is watched by a lot of people.

    Matt Drudge has a syndicated radio program. Fox News does not carry any show by Drudge.

    Yeah, Drudge had a show on FoxNews a couple years back & if I remember, the reason he got canned was for not showing up one night.
