Drudge Uses Tarantino Film Review To Blast Out A Series Of N-Bombs

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by muriel_volestrangler (a host of the Latest Breaking News forum).

Matt Drudge is taking advantage of the criticism directed at filmmaker Quentin Tarantino for the use of a racial epithet in his films to inappropriately splatter that epithet across his webpage seven times, in an apparent attempt to shock readers with racially charged rhetoric. Drudge has a history of featuring racially inflammatory language and images on his website.

1. Tarantino's new movie is about a slave revolt

Of course a film set around the issue of slavery is going to have that word in it, Tarantino's use of the word is in a very different context than Drudge's.

2. One guarantee:

Drudge has not seen the film. I agree with freedom of speech, so his use of the word does not shock me, either, as he hopes it will. Of course, I never read his drivel anyway so I would never know what he spews unless I see it in another media outlet.

7. It's odd that nobody cares if he has Samuel L. Jackson say it, but he can't say it himself.

You're worried about the dead what in your garage?

12. Locking - not of national interest

Drudge's use of language, or racial bias, is not 'breaking news'. Perhaps GD would be a better place for this.
