So Drudge has a scoop, does he? Apparently ABC's John Green, executive producer of the "Good Morning America" weekend edition, sent a brief email during the Bush-Kerry presidential debate on September 30, 2004, which read: "Are you watching this? Bush makes me sick. If he uses the 'mixed messages' line one more time, I'm going to puke."

This just in: a voter had opinions about a presidential candidate.

Drudge claims that this and "other emails obtained by the Drudge Report, further reveal the inner workings of the nation's news outlets." He does not, however, say how. He provides no examples and no further evidence of how Green or any other ABC staffer prepare reports that were biased or presented conclusions that were unsupported by fact.

For the record, Bush made reference to "mixed" messages and/or signals 8 times during the debate, and Kerry made 4 in response. Also for the record, I can think of more than a few people who would have agreed with Green. That, however, is not enough to imply that the performance of their professional duties was ever compromised.

Hey, how do you think Drudge felt about that speech? Hm. Dunno, hard to say.
