Drudge Sludge

Attytood: Matt Drudge rules their world...and falsely accuses them of murder

"...Here's how the story is now bannered near the top of the Drudge Report, one of the ten most trafficked news sites on the Internet, the news source that former ABC News political director Mark Halperin said "rules our world":

"THE MAN THE MEDIA MURDERED: Richard Jewell dead..."

Pretty provocative. Reading that, I assumed that someone close to Jewell, like his wife, was making the accusation that the stress from his ordeal with the press had caused his illness. In fact, the linked story from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution only says this:

Meriwhether County coroner Johnny Worley said Jewell's wife, Dana, discovered him unconscious at about 10:30 a.m. Worley said an autopsy would be performed by the Georgia Bureau of Investiation to determine how Jewell died, but there was "no suspicion of foul play..."
