Drudge sends millions of views of traffic to a site that lifts articles from the New York Times, Atlantic and others

Drudge didn’t link to the New York Times. Instead, the site sent visitors to a copy-pasted version of the story on, an obscure site filled with content plagiarized from publishers, including the Times, the Atlantic, Bloomberg, and the Financial Times, among others.

Since November, the links on the Drudge Report have sent roughly 8 million pageviews to the site


A Google spokesperson said it removed ads from and terminated the associated AdSense publisher account after being contacted by BuzzFeed News.
