    Matt Drudge Declares London Center of All Media It’s just like that scary kid in The Ring. He doesn’t sleep. Matt Drudge never sleeps. “I took a break,” he tells Anna Botting, of London’s Sky News, dodging her question about whether he brings his laptop to bed. “Sometimes I find myself updating hundreds of times a day,” he says. “Hundreds of times a day. You need to be completely live, almost as if you’re animated. With text.” Animated with text! Our mind itches all of a sudden. So does Botting’s, apparently. “Does it make you twitchy?” she asks Drudge. “I’ve learned how to pace myself,” he says. “I’ve been doing this for thirteen years.” Yeah, yeah, we know. And he’s still kind of coasting on Monica. “I had to break it because other people wouldn’t.” Yeah, yeah. Where’s Drudge been, anyway? This is his first interview in four years. And why is he doing it London? “One of the reasons I’m in London is that the media here is unparalleled. It surpasses New York, it surpasses all the cities of the world. This is the media town.” Matt Drudge Speaks to Sky [Sky] Related: Watching Matt Drudge [NYM]

    Is Kate Beckinsale Too Hot to Play Judy Miller?MEDIA • Matt Drudge cracked open The New Republic’s Iraq fabulist controversy once again.

Franklin Foer complains that Drudge’s docs could only have come from the Army. [Slate, NYO] • Chris Jones, the managing editor of Portfolio.com, announced his departure from the mag after giving notice over a month ago.

On the other hand, the Valerie Plame CIA character, played by Vera Farmiga, looks just about right. [WP]

    WABC Thinks Imus Was Punished Too SeverelyThat crazy Matt Drudge is saying that Don Imus will return to radio soon. “We’ll have him on a standard 40-second delay,” said a studio source at WABC, where Drudge claims Imus will begun jockeying once again. “Don is rested, humbled, and ready for war!” Wow, whose idea was that? We’re betting Citadel Broadcasting CEO Farid Suleman was the brains behind it. “I think if Don was available, we would be very happy to see what we could do,” Suleman told New York’s Robert Kolker way back in August. “What he did was wrong. But the consequences of what he did seemed out of proportion.” Well! This is sure to offend some people. What will he say next? We’re sure pretty much everyone will be listening with glee, just waiting for his next gaffe. Which is, you know, exactly what Suleman wants.

    Matt Drudge, Why Are You Leaving Us Now?Hey guys — did you hear? Internet superstar Matt Drudge is giving up his radio show! And some crazy cats are saying it’s because of the New York profile on him a couple of weeks ago. Thanks for the flattery, friends, but that seems like a bit of a stretch, especially since Matt himself claims he gave notice to his radio bosses in July. Still, we too are scratching our heads over why he may have dumped the show. Friends say that he loves the doing it, and he himself once told listeners that “no one would know” what he really thinks if he didn’t have it. Why ditch the program now? Since he’s such a private person, maybe he’s gotten tired of letting people inside his head? That seems to make sense. In any event, he commented on Jeff Bercovici’s Portfolio blog, saying, “The NY Mag story was a riot! I thoroughly enjoyed it.” Oh, Matt! Are you flirting? We knew waiting outside of your house all those times was worth it. Off the Air [NYP] Did Drudge’s Words Come Back to Haunt Him?
