During a House hearing this morning, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano criticized the Drudge Report for highlighting stories about the department’s purchases of ammunition and MRAP (Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected) vehicles.
Congressman Jeff Duncan, R-S.C., questioned Napolitano about the reports from Forbes Magazine and other stories linked on the Drudge Report.
“You know, when Forbes Magazine or Drudge or some reputable news sources start to repeat the numbers … the numbers cease to become internet rumors and they start having some credibility,” Duncan said questioning the “long delay” from the DHS to clarify the numbers.
“I will tell you we found it so inherently unbelievable that statements would be made, it was hard to ascribe credibility to them,” Napolitano said, suppressing a bemused smile. “I don’t know if I’d put Forbes and Drudge in the same sentence.”
