Why is this news?

This was the main headline on the Drudge Report overnight was this little gem.  Why is this news? We knew he was a grad student, and grad students often get federal help.  But the conservative media is never one to miss an opportunity to reinforce their readers' anti-spending biases, so we get treated to this headline.  More out of control government spending, or something...

It's drudge. Anything that has the words "federal" or "government" = automatic news.

If he were on a private scholarship, this wouldn't be up there.

I agree - drudge is just hyping this. But no one pretends that drudge is unbaised ;-).
