When Matt Drudge's Hollywood-based Internet provider began to choke under the onslaught of Monicagate traffic, the CyberGossip began casting about for another server to host the Drudge Report. The search landed him square in the heartland at Kansas City-based ISP KC1. Interestingly enough, this means that since February Drudge has been sharing disk space with such right-wing stars as G. Gordon Liddy and notorious gay-bashing anti-Semitic preacher the Reverend Fred Phelps. "People tend to congregate," says KC1 co-owner Kevin Johnson. But what the hey, it's a free country, right? Says Johnson: "We don't necessarily like everything we see. But we can't just not take things simply because we don't like them."
