Displeased with Drudge

There is no doubt about the fact that the Drudge Report loves sensationalism. The sensationalism was more than a little rude this afternoon, however. Right now Drudge is featuring a story about a new flick that will portray the assassination of President Bush in 2007. This is how it looks over at his page:

It is midday right now-lunch time. There are plenty of people out there like me that do a quick scan of the news. During those quick scans, you get the gist of a headline very quickly but it takes an additional moment for what you saw to really register. That was the case here. I briefly scanned the page as I scrolled, and the fact that this was just a movie did not register immediately. That's a punch in the chest, especially with the realistic low resolution image. I'm rather miffed with the Drudge Report right now.
