OCCUPATION: Founder and editor of the Drudge Report
NUMBER OF TIME COVERS: 0
PREVIOUS APPEARANCES ON THE TIME 100: 1
PRO: Over a decade after it coalesced from the lurid goo of rumor, hysteria and legit journalism, the Drudge Report remains a force to be reckoned with, still capable of pulling down big scoops and clocking up to three million unique users in a month. And the one-time Clinton-bashing HQ is still a potent political weapon for candidates like...Hillary Clinton.
CON: That Drudge-Clinton axis may be broken, after Drudge blabbed that a Clinton staffer handed him the infamous photo of Obama in African garb. 2007 also saw the end of Drudge's radio show.
