The two most important people on the Internet -- according to themselves, of course -- participated in an interview today, although it wasn't exactly an interview, as Alex Jones merely waxed effulgent about the perfection that is Matt Drudge, while Drudge simply accepted and expanded on his compliments.
We're not necessarily suggesting you listen to the interview below, as it contains about as much humility as Donald Trump's daily affirmations, but if you do, you can learn about how fiercely independent Drudge is -- unlike those of us here at Salon, who are beholden to our corporate and social media overlords.
According to himself, Drudge is an Internet pioneer whose despises the Twitter thing -- although his social media team uses it to great advantage -- and who just can't stop talking Clinton conspiracy theories all these years later. He bemoaned, for example, that the mainstream media isn't writing breathlessly about "Hillary's lovers," whose secret locations they allegedly know.
He confessed that he's "seen as a gossip-monger, mainly because of Lewinsky and those years -- which by the way, are back. Why aren't we seeing Hillary's lovers? Excuse me -- why aren't we seeing Hillary's lovers? Where's the cover-up on this."
"That's what I try to do every morning," he added. "I cannot be controlled! I cannot be controlled!"
Drudge acknowledged that he "dabbled in the corporate with the Fox News show and the Clear Channel show for nine years," but insisted that "that was on its own terms."
He complained about "these socials" -- by which he meant, social media -- including Facebook, "which has two billion users. This is bogus. It's designed to demoralize the individual. I'll never have two billion followers!" Who designed "these socials" to deflate Drudge's self-esteem wasn't actually addressed, of course, but clearly they must be important if they've targeted Matt Drudge.
