"Drudge Floats Conspiracy Theory That Pelosi Has ‘Vanished,’ Ignores Clinton Rally, CNN Profile"

Matt Drudge has a banner headline floating a conspiracy theory that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has gone into hiding:

Drudge writes:

The woman who would be speaker, Nancy Pelosi, has oddly stayed out of the national spotlight in the week leading up to the big vote.

The high profile, potentially history-making democrat has turned dramatically low-key.

And since Pelosi appeared on the October 22 broadcast of 60 MINUTES, national TV hits have been nonexistent.

UPDATE: ThinkProgress has found multiple other national television appearances. Pelosi appeared on CNBC’s On the Money Kudlow & Company on 10/24 and on ABC’s Good Morning America and ABC’s World News Tonight on 10/26:


She has also been profiled by major newspapers in the last two weeks — the New York Times (10/30), Newsweek (10/23), and the Baltimore Sun (10/27).
