Mr Drudge?

New Idea, the Australian gossip magazine which broke the story of Prince Harry serving in Afghanistan has apologized, saying that it was unaware that there was an agreed press blackout by the British media, and acknowledging that the story was insensitive and could have put both the prince and his unit at risk. But it was not the story in January issue of a small Ausie rag with a 390,000 circulation base that prompted the British army to pull the prince from combat. It was not until the story was picked up by the very widely read and influential Drudge Report that the prince was called home. I wonder: now that New Idea has apologized for blowing the Prince's cover and putting his life at risk, will Matt Drudge do the same?
