"I don't like O'Malley and I am no Dumbocrat / Caligulite. Still, methinks you should validate stuff like this before you post it." So wrote "Sartorius" on Aug. 13, 2004. The participant in a discussion board on FreeRepublic.com was responding to an explosive posting that Baltimore Mayor Martin O'Malley was having an extramarital affair. It turns out that even Web posters themselves question the publishing power the Internet grants anyone with a modem. Sartorius's skepticism proved salient: Another person posting about the topic was revealed this week to be Joseph Steffen, a longtime political operative for O'Malley's political rival, Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. That story, and Steffen's resignation, broke in the mainstream media.

Address: www.popfactor.com / tmftml / What's the point?: Back in September, after years of entertaining bored office workers with ironic comments on pop culture, a blog called The Minor Fall, The Major Lift called it quits. And in the middle of a presidential campaign, no less! The blogging world was in mourning for what felt like hours. But earlier this month, TMFTML returned, and in fine form. How can you not like a site that regularly makes fun of the New York Times and Matt Drudge ("whose oeuvre consists in the main of running unflattering pictures of Hillary Clinton and 'breaking' real reporters' stories before they see print")

Fox News Channel and Matt Drudge are close to parting ways.After Drudge failed to do his Saturday show, "Drudge," crying censorship because Fox wouldn't let him use a picture of a fetus undergoing surgery to correct spina bifida, Fox gave Drudge an ultimatum: apologize and be let out of his contract, or be fired and sued for breach of contract.As of yesterday afternoon, Fox sources said it looked like the parting was going to be worked out amicably but cautioned that no agreement had been finalized.

I HATE the word "media." I'm a snob. I don't like being lumped in with Larry Flynt and Matt Drudge. I'm not sure they'd like being lumped in with me. But, as the Emperor Joseph said in "Amadeus," there it is.So, now that It is over, what has the mainstream press learned? (I define "It," in this case, as the impeachment saga.)Frankly, not an awful lot: Something's out of kilter in the news trade. The good news doctrines, the ones they have taught in journalism schools, since the wilder forces of journalism turned establishment, no longer apply.

In the world according to Takoma Park's Matt Drudge, truth is better and faster than fiction, and three-fourths truths are the best."My stories are about 80 percent accurate," cyber celeb Drudge has said. "I get antsy when people take my stuff seriously," he told "Nightline's" Ted Koppel earlier this month.Well, Matt, the nation is antsy over your e-mail scoop this month. The Drudge Report, his flashy Internet newsletter, first spilled the bytes about former White House intern Monica Lewinsky claiming she had an affair with current White House president Bill Clinton.

PRESIDENT Clinton's latest imbroglio may not be scandal lite, but it certainly is scandal quick, first propelled as if by demons and then, slowing down, perhaps to disappear, but probably just resting and gathering strength for another torrent of lurid installments.Whatever, its tempo is quite different from that of the Watergate affair a generation ago, which, in retrospect anyway, moved at a stately, measured pace, like a minuet. Then, the cadence seemed to be report, White House denial, more reports, more denials and later, House investigations led by the late Rep. Sam Ervin, punctuated and enlivened by such characters as G. Gordon Liddy, John Dean and Martha Mitchell.

Nothing sets standards - ethical, professional and practical - like success. This old Machiavellian maxim is proving espially true in modern journalism as evidenced by how the latest Clinton story is unfolding. Traditional journalistic norms are being taxed to the maximum as the frenzy to "stay on top" or "ahead of" this monumental sex-and-power story increases. Thanks to the Internet, it's a new day for tabloid journalism, for better or worse.He is the guy they love to quote but hate to credit - Matt Drudge of the infamous Drudge Report, the Internet gossip conveyor.

A mammoth class action lawsuit over asbestos poisoning made Peter Angelos the meddling multimillionaire Orioles owner and hyperactive citizen of Baltimore he is today. Recently, he got the judicial go-ahead to bring another mammoth class action lawsuit, this time against the tobacco industry, a development that gave Angelos grins, but which prompted this thought:With so much dough at stake, perhaps the courts should consider judicial certification of such a humongous class action the equivalent of a franchise grant.

IMAGINE Sidney Blumenthal's surprise when he sat down at his computer in August, logged on to the Drudge Report, a popular Internet gossip column, and discovered he ''has a spousal-abuse past that has been effectively covered up.'' As Mr. Blumenthal, political journalist and newly appointed presidential assistant, told it through his attorney, this was news to him and to his wife, who directs the White House fellows program. They responded by slapping a $30-million libel suit on Matt Drudge, who writes the Drudge Report, and on America Online, the Internet service that carries it. Meanwhile, Mr. Drudge, admitting he had been snookered by his source, pulled the item and issued a retraction.
