First, Drudge is clearly not a normal "news" source. I would hope people realize his headlines reflect his opinion. The headline you cited was clearly his opinion (or interpretation) of why Hilary said what she said. But the real problem here is how divided we have become. Even legitimate news sources will filter what they write through their worldview, and even when they honestly try to be objective, they can't help but show some of their underlying bias -- especially when it comes to social issues and politics. Worse is the push back that news organizations get from partisans who dislike their objectivity and want them to tell the "truth". People give up on the more impartial news sites to find the ones that will tell the news the way they want to hear it. In other words, "fake" news -- or really biased news -- exists because we want it. And we want it because more and more people think regular news is not telling the "true" news. And we think that because we are so quick to believe that a Hillary or a Trump are far worse than they actually are.
