On this episode of PoliOptics radio on Sirius XM, Josh King and I take you behind the scenes of the Drudge Report (as if he really needs this link to drive traffic). As of March 31, 2011, Matt Drudge’s Website — a must scan from all sides of the political fence, reports 9.5 billion (that’s billion with a B) visits in the last year.
In his first ever interview on the subject, former longtime White House reporter, Joe Curl, talks about his job as editor of the most influential and mysterious news site on the planet. Then, we explore the polioptics of President Obama’s trip to Latin Amerca with CNN Senior White House correspondent, Ed Henry, who was inside the bubble for the whole thing (except, of course, the secure conferece call on the situation in Libya held inside a blue tent in an undisclosed location in Rio de Janeiro).
The President’s five-day trip included stops in Brazil, Chile and El Salvador. On our show, a revealing conversation about the journey and the stagecraft behind it.
