Declining Washington Post Desperately Attacks More Popular News Site

George Washington's picture

There’s something interesting about the Washington Post's false smear of 200 news sites as being “Russian propaganda”.

Specifically, the Post actually attacked a more popular news source …

Specifically, in July of this year, the Washington Post had 369,476,000 combined pageviews … and the number of visits from Facebook was down 26% from the first quarter in 2016:

postThe number on the left is the important one:  Combined Page-Views.  The middle number is Desktop Facebook Visits,  and the right number is Change in Facebook Visits Q1 Versus Q2.

Drudge, on the other hand, had combined pageviews of 1,472,220,000 … and its Facebook visits were up 50% from Q1:


To be fair, the Washington Post also has a print edition. Its circulation is around 474,767  daily, with a Sunday edition circulation of 838,014.

So let’s add it up …

WaPo had total impressions in July 2016 of:

  • 369,476,000 (web impressions)
  • Plus [6 (daily editions per week) times 4 (weeks in a month) times 474,767 (daily edition newspaper circulation)]
  • Plus [4 (Sunday editions per month) times 838,014 (Sunday newspaper circulation)]

Equals 384,222,464 total impressions.

Bottom line: Drudge had over a billion more impressions than the Post in July (1,472,220,000 minus 384,222,464 = 1,087,997,536).

Put another, way, WaPo only had 26.1% of the impressions Drudge did in July.

Postscript:  Is this the classic behavior of a sore loser?  

For example, when political candidates start sinking in the polls, they often desperately attack the leader to try to generate enough controversy to try to regain relevance and kick-start interest in their campaigns.

Note: Some of the other sites on the red-baiting blacklist cited by the Post also have impressive numbers, although below those of the Post. But added together, the impressions of the site on the list leave the Post even further behind.

Ok, Part 2 from below...

&-----> A Few Tips For Not Getting Poisoned <-----&

1) Stop eating and drinking. ... That's right, if you don't swallow anything your chances of being poisoned go WAY down.

Barring a complete ban on consumption, which admittedly is a little hard to enforce sometimes, pay fucking attention to WHAT you put in your piehole and more importantly WHERE it came from and WHO had access to it before you slam it down the hatch. ... Makes sense doesn't it? ... Well, you'd be amazed at how little attention people take with what they suck in and swallow without thinking about it. .. Consider the tale of Pamela and Julian for instance. ... (I think Assange fucked up royally)

2) Do know who cooks your food and who serves it. .. Don't get up from the table in a restaurant and march off to the head without a VERY trusted and aware party sitting at your table keeping an eagle eye on your drink (Coffee, cocktail or fucking glass of water for that matter) food and eating utensils. ... When in doubt, leave it. ... Order a new fresh drink in a new glass if you have to leave a drink unattended.

The fact is the CIA (All of the intelligence communities) have spent billions of dollars and countless man years of time studying up on how to kill people and get away with it. .. The subject fills many, many thick volumes and reams of classified documents.

3) One method journalists MUST be aware of is - The poison letter or periodical.

We all remember the anthrax letters after 911. ... Those were the clumsiest poison letters ever attempted. They weren't even meant to work. They were intended to terrorize and be caught very publicly. (They were a false flag op by Ass Wipes Inc. the same swell folks that brought you 911. And, no, OBL & Company had nothing to do with them)

The method is carried out by placing a very small, nay, tiny, tiny amount of very powerful powdered poison that has been statically charged between the pages of a book, magazine or some documents. Carefully folding the book up closed tight and handing it to the victim to be read or examined later. ... As soon as the magazine is opened to that page, for example, the powdered poison wafts into the air in a small invisible cloud. The action of opening the publication and the fact the powder is electrically charged make it literally leap into the air in an instant. .. The victim while reading the material is breathing in the cloud of tasteless poison until he takes is face out of the book.

The CIA has killed many a reporter, diplomat and even a few dissident drug lords and real careful bad guys with that trick. .... Never, ever, open a magazine handed to you by a spook if you have ANY concern about his intentions or the document's origin. .. Open letters and parcels carefully and always look for minute amounts of brown or white powder. ... Some new poisons are very, very potent and only take less than a nanogram to be lethal. ....

Then we come to weaponized pathogens care of the DoD and CIA labs all over the globe and it makes the job of being vigilant even harder. .. Those are pretty much invisible killers that can be cancer causing viruses, heart attack stimulators or crippling wasting disease pathogens that are hard to counter altogether.

Ok, I've worried all the Alt Media Crusader Rabbits enough for one day. ...

The single best piece of advice I can give you is to have lots of very alert friends around you that know how to look for poisonings too. And know about opening packages and letters. ... Someone to watch your back. ... Stay clustered, my friend, and stay up right. .... Better to be a live Bozo like me than a dead martyr like Max. ... Let's make Ass Wipes Inc and Hello Kitty provide all the dead martyrs for this adventure story.

Oh, and no strolling around after dark by yourself, ... OK?

Lead poisoning is the worst and most preventable type of poisoning ever. The assholes hate using it on some people because those people get an opportunity to poison them back on the spot. ... I'm hoping for lead poisoning attempt myself but will probably just get anthrax again.

Ju-jitsu the MSM.That is, take their energy and use it against them.

If people around you mention  "the Russians messing with out media", hand them a list of Alt.Right sites like these. Tell them to check them out and "since they are intelligent people, make up their own mind."

Talk up to people, not down to them. That's how Trump won.

I will never forget the reporting on the fall of the Berlin Wall. Young people on both sides of the wall were celebrating the destruction and removal of the wall. The camera goes back to Peter Jennings and he is almost in tears. Solemn face, voice sounds like he is reporting a funeral. These socialist/communists portraying as journalists are laughable. The former Soviet Union was only a tool for them to promote their agenda. When it failed, they went into mourning.

Our corporate media just has to be more forthright with it's propaganda, I mean, completely objective coverage. American support for the bombing of Yemen back to the stone age by Sharia Saudi Arabia proves that we can be very reasonable. If Assad and Russia want to kill and maim responsibly, they'll just have to buy more Treasuries and drop U.S. made bombs.

Ju media, covered up the Ju's who gave USSR the nuke secrets..cohen's and rosenberg' movement goes back to Marx and was pushed by OMgosh, the Ju's..the ju owned media painted McCarthy as a drunk and a cover the real story of the Ju and communist movement in USA.

"McCarthy may have been a drunk, bombastic, and overzealous....but he wasn't wrong."

I stopped buying from Amazon years ago, even before the creepy Googlezon videos came out.  It was disturbing to me that a company can come out and lose billions and billions putting little guys out of business just for the sake of doing so in order that they build a monopoly the small guy can't.  

I still have not figured out how to get out of Google's grasp though, android phone, gmail, gservices, google escape that I can see!

Go back to a flip phone and use DuckDuckGo or startpage as your search engine. As you disengage the technology they use, you take away their power and influence. Get off Google mail if you use it. Everything is handed to the gov for review. Hushmail is an alternative, works well, and is reasonably priced for the peace of mind and privacy it offers.

Since my adolescence I imagined/dreamed of storming the TV studio and start speaking some truth in broad daylight, because it was main channel for people to get some info about their surroundings. (was war back then, national TV broadcasted "patriotic" theme of our brave soldiers liberating country, while gangsters looted state economy in the dark)

To be alive in this moment, and see whole charade melting before our eyes is very,very gratifying, to say at least :) MSM trashing tantrums at it's best.

Adapt or die, seems like they choose (or were forced to) wrong one.

If Hillary had won we would be very close to being forced to rely on propaganda sights like the washington Post as a legitimate news source. With Trump in, Big Brother will have to hope and scheme for another day to destroy the Truth/Liberty news sights. 

Evil Bugeyes's picture

What? The Washington Post is a NEWS site? I never read it, but I always had the vague impression that it was a some kind of repository for politically correct hate speech. Thanks for correcting that obviously mistaken impression, GW.

Savyindallas's picture

I think it used to be a news sight- before the internet- but I'm not sure. I know a decade or so ago a lot of people used to believe it was a news sight. I used to think it was, but because there was no internet and alternative news, I may have been a victim of propaganda  -from the Ministry of truth. 


nevertheless, i think it still remains avaluable source of information for what the Ministry of truth is pushing as Big Brother sponsored propaganda.

==== + Extreme Caution Is Advised - Minefield Ahead! + ====

If they really don't like your 'fake news' and you gain too much of a following or readership they will kill you or have you commit suicide by threatening to kill your children.

Face it, the WaPo has been crawling with CIA propagandists since AT LEAST before the Watergate/Pentagam Papers days.

Now if you are reporting something they don't like they will just JFK your ass. ....

Take that as a extra special word of caution to you Alt Media journalist out there. (Are you listening George?)

Take the example of Victor Thorne: ... 42(?) years old, very successful investigative journalist and book author. A happy guy, and a father of one son. ... Victor told an interviewer just before he died that if he were ever found dead it WOULD NOT be suicide, And...*snap* just like that, he is found dead and it is declared a suicide. .. My experience tells me he shot himself for his kid. .. That's the way these Satanists do it. = "You do yourself in because we told you to or we kill your loved ones nice and slow."

Another example would be Max Spiers (An assumed name I hope)

Max was a speaker coming out about secret dot gov (or Ass Wipes Inc) bad behavior. .. Labeled a UFO conspiracy theorist by the MSM Max wasn't so much talking about UFOs and space aliens as he was about dot mil MKUltra projects of which he was a victim. .. One of many child victims coming out of the woodwork and stepping forward. At 39, in perfect health he dies taking a nap on the couch.

Conspiracy Theorist Max Spiers Full Lecture Poland, Warsaw (English Only) (

I could go on and on giving examples of outright murder by these control freak assholes.

MY POINT IS _ Be Careful_Be Careful_Be Careful !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Be careful out there you guys and girls who are just trying to tell the truth.

The NUMBER ONE method the creeps/CIA/Mosaad/Thug hitmen will use on you is POISON. .. Fast acting or slow and delivered two dozen different ways they love poison and have spent billions studying the field. ....... The fact is, they are slow poisoning us all right now, but that's a different story. ... You want to watch for fast poisons, mind numbing drugs and pathogens.

So true. ... We've got this if we keep pushing and clean up DoJ.

We do need to watch each other's back a little better and stop being so naive as to think they don't murder people on a regular basis for speaking the truth.

It happens every day even in the nicest of neighborhoods. (That's not a bad joke, BTW)

Seth Rich for instance. .. What was that moron thinking? Crossing swords with the Clinton killing machine and then walking around by himself after dark? .. And Assange's lawyer? .. Standing around on a subway platform by himself? Jumping Dumbfish!.. Breitbart too. Announcing he had something big to release and then wandering down the street without an armed escort?

Where the fuck do people think they are? .. In a fucking Walt Disney movie?

Oh, AND never, ever, count on the police to protect you. Do you people understand that? .... NEVER. .... LEO is 90% OWNED by the bad guys. ..... The corruption is pervasive in this country. .. GOT THAT, people?

Sorry to be going off and yelling at everyone like that but it's for your own good.

Yes, I know but it can still save your bacon being careful as you can.

Have you seen Jim Stone's site lately? .. He says they are micro~waving him at home so bad his shielding is sparking and glowing!

I had a visit last week that I wrote up and decided not to post because unless this stupid crap happens to you first hand I know it sounds wacky to people on the net. ...... I need to preserve all the credibility I can to spread the word on Chemtrails and AI AL the two biggest threats to EVERYONE.

I know, they SHOULD be able to kill anyone they want anytime they want. (see the poisoning post above) I know what they can do and how much money they have to do it with. It's amazing we are all not dead yet.

I've been to Drudge every single day since about 1998.  Lately, I've missed the light-hearted links he used to link to.  Anyway, one thing the article needs to say is that Drudge links way too much to the WaPo and NYT.  How many of their 300M+ links do you think were sent by the much larger Drudge Report?  The only reason I can see that he links to the WaPo and NYT is because they're sending serious cash his way.  I wish he'd stop that.  Most stories he links to could easily be found elsewhere.




RightLineBacker's picture

I up voted you because I agree that fewer links to the enemy sites (WaPo & NYT) would be a great improvement and at the same time hurt their business (a good thing).

But I don't think he is taking money from them. I've got no facts, so just my opinion.
