Matt Drudge calls out Washington Post

Matt Drudge is blasting The Washington Post for reporting that he regularly linked to "Russian Propaganda." The conservative media tycoon has taken to his personal Twitter account to criticize the Post.

"I've linked to @washingtonpost over 10,000X in 25 years of doing DRUDGEREPORT," he wrote. "I currently give them 37% of their referral traffic, according to similarweb.com . It's a brutal business. Not even a thank you. Instead: YOU'RE A RUSSIAN OPERATIVE!"

Why it's personal: Drudge is known for driving traffic to premium publishers in the digital ecosystem for years, and many publishers pitch Drudge daily on stories to put on his website.
