The Drudge Report headlined with a Happy-Hillary photo, along with a birthday cake.
There was also a link to how Hillary was serenaded with a Happy Birthday tune by Prince Royce at Univision.
At Univision, she also was interviewed on the Hispanic show "El Gordo Y La Flaca". Of course, she positioned and packaged that as a smooth pitch for the Hispanic vote.
Some of us media agnostics were speculating if the conservative Drudge Report would lose its influence - and traffic - if Donald Trump falls down a dark hole. And can't climb out.
Think about it: The country had made its choice. That was Hillary, flaws and all. And it will be in no mood for unflattering photos of Hillary. Campaign 2016 was a stress-producer. We all want to get back to normal.
Also, the GOP has to rebuild. The platform for that might not align with the old-style bombast of the Drudge Report.
So, once there is a next U.S. President (post any recounts and perhaps a trip to the U.S. Supreme Court), the Drudge Report could sideline the piss and vinegar toward Hillary. It might have to. Look what happened to Gawker which ignored the changing winds in digital media? It is gonzo.
Members of the digital media are struggling as much as those in Establishment media. No one is sitting pretty. That includes the Drudge Report.
