Amber Alert website is working, but Drudge keeps the headline...
Washington, DC - The website for First Lady Michelle Obama's childhood obesity campaign, Letsmove.gov, has been online since the government shutdown began on Tuesday, Oct. 1. But it took Drudge Report until Monday morning to feature the news above its banner.
Apparently AmberAlert.gov was offline on Sunday, Oct. 6, when the story linked in the Drudge headline was published. The Amber site is now up and running, but Drudge kept the headline about the First Lady above its banner on Monday, even though the fact about the Amber site being online was noted in the story on The Right Scoop the headline linked to.
Despite the Let's Move! website being available to visitors, Mrs. Obama's childhood obesity campaign is in shutdown mode: Let's Move! Executive Director Sam Kass is on furlough. There will be no announcements or events for the duration of the shutdown.
The Twitter account for the campaign, @LetsMove, has also been suspended for the duration of the shutdown. The last message posted, on Oct. 1, reads "Due
to Congress’s failure to pass legislation to fund the govt, this
account will be inactive. Follow @WhiteHouse for updates. #Shutdown."
A screengrab from The Right Scoop shows it updated its story about the Amber site:
