Can't Access Drudge Report - Troubleshooting Instructions

If the site is UP but you cant access the page, try one of the below solutions:

Browser Related Problems

Force a full refresh for the site. This can be achieved by pressing CTRL + F5 keys at the same time on your favourite browser (Firefox, Chrome, Explorer, etc.)

Clear the temporary cache and cookies on your browser to make sure that you have the most recent version of the web page. For instructions choose your browser :

Fix DNS Problems

A Domain Name System (DNS) allows a site IP address (192.168.x.x) to be identified with words (*.com) in order to be remembered more easily, like a phonebook for websites. This service is usually provided by your ISP.

Clear your local DNS cache to make sure that you grab the most recent cache that your ISP has. For Windows - (Start > Command Prompt > type "ipconfig /flushdns" and hit enter). For details choose your operating system :

If you can access a website at office or from a 3G network yet it's not working on your computer, it is a good idea to use an alternative DNS service other than your ISPs. OpenDNS or Google Public DNS are both excellent and free public DNS services.

Check our help page for step-by-step instructions on how to change your DNS.

Drudge page formatted improperly. Unless this is some 'new' interface. Just links to various papers, stations, locations, zips... no titles, headlines or photos. 'Typical' drudge page is not present. This is not a hack at the user end, something at their end.

I get the blank page with the little ad, too. Sigh--now I've got to call somebody to debug my computer--also install Adblocker.

No report. Just tiny screen in upperleft corner of my ipad with an annoying ad loop. No Drudge. Cleared history, cookies. Installed updated operating system. Still no luck. No problem accessing site on desktop. From the look of other comments, I am not the only one with this problem and I don't think it is a problem on my machine.

These things are happening more and more.
The guilty should be arrested and their penalty should be proportional to the monetary loses and time innocent people lose due to their actions. In most cases the would end up losing everything they have, but if that's their choice so be it

· · Safari 7.0 on iPad

When Drudge first appears, you can see the headlines and articles flash quickly, disappear and then the ad box shows up. The site is being updated but people can't see it for some reason. I hope that Drudge is aware of the problem.

Pat T Hibbard · 27 October 2015 - 18:25

Drudgereport site flashes by and a box with ads starts running. Been this way today all day...using Safari...cleaned outside websites, deleted favorites, tried differs times to access, but no luck!

Upgraded IOS on my iPad today and now I cannot get onto Drudge. I met with failure trying both the app and Safari.

What is going on?

For sometime now Drudge report has been slow and now it will not come up at all. I have suspected that the present administration has something to do with it, as Drudge usually takes a different viewpoint than theirs. Until the Hillary cycle began I had no problems at all pulling up the Drudge reports.

The only web page I know where you can't read the stories. Try this... move your mouse over the story and you see the link at the very bottom of your screen. Type the title on your browser to get to the story. Shame on Drudge to be so behind the times like this.

He used to be goood, and now he just collects ad revenue, and his posts are all done by college students that he pays nothing. He hates democrats and is all one sided. I am a republican, Christian, yeah call me right wing, and this man is a bad thing for everyone. Matt Drudge go away. you made your money, dented head, go away now. You make me as a conservative feel ashamed.

FORGET IT. MATT DRUDGE AND FOLKS DO NOT RESPOND TO THESE COMMENTS, so I am deleteing my posts. Really. Why help him if he just delagated his work to interns, like most of his mispelled headlines. I miss the Matt of the early 2001, 2002 years. Now he is a corporation and is receiving bribes to display or not display news. He is not sold out. Sorry Matt, I used to visit you 10 times an hour.

if you cannot open the links in Internet Explorer, just right click the article link and select open in new tab from the menu. This started for me about beginning of April.. Also the DR opens in a very large font until I hit CTRL-F5. Then it looks normal. This all started beginning of April.
