Sound the alarm. The Drudge Report will make what they are saying is a major announcement on Tuesday evening, when a story dubbed, "Obama's Other Race Speech" breaks on Fox News at 9:00 p.m. EST.
Drudge has put up a siren atop its homepage, a signal used to alert readers when the site has a major scoop, story, or news to report. There is a picture of President Obama with the headline: "Tonight: Obama's Other Race Speech." There are also cryptic sub-headlines which read, "The Accent ... The Anger ... The Accusations ... The Sermon... The Shout Out to Rev. Wright, Who is in Audience..." But there are few other details, leaving readers guessing as to what the news may be.
Matt Drudge himself took to Twitter to announce and drum up support for the breaking story. "@DRUDGE Curious tape dropping tonight. NOT from MOTHERJONES. Will cause controversy, ignite accusations of racism -- in both directions!"
But, it is still unclear just how revealing, if all all, the news will be. Drudge seems to be hoping for an October surprise, a new "gotcha" type video which will convince voters of Obama's true intentions as president. But this type of attack has failed many times before (remember, when Breitbart.com also said they had a major scoop on Obama, which turned out to be a dud?). Moreover, Obama has been president for four years, so it's hardly likely that there is all of a sudden a shocking game changer piece of evidence which was left unturned until now.
Liberals on Twitter seem skeptical that this is anything more than Drudge pandering for traffic and momentum for the Romney campaign ahead of the presidential debate. Conservatives, by contrast, are awaiting eagerly for that single piece of evidence which can turn the election in Romney's favor.
Who's right? We'll provide the news and analysis of what Drudge actually reveals at 9:00 pm EST. Stay tuned for more.
8:35 PM The video may come from 2007. Drudge hints at what Obama might say, "We don't need to build more highways out in the suburbs. We should be investing in minority-owned businesses, in our neighborhoods'..."
8:30 PM Latest news from Drudge: Video to air on Fox News at 9:00 p.m. The Daily Caller is planning to release an "unscrubbed" Obama video. According to the Daily Caller, "For nearly 40 minutes, using an accent he never adopts in public, Obama describes a racist, zero-sum society, in which the white majority profits by exploiting black America'...
