drudge report deceptively promotes a russian analyst 'decline and breakup of u.s.' prediction

we had just finished posting a ria novosti article captioned "russian analyst predicts decline and breakup of u.s." when we flipped over to the drudgereport and was quite surprised to see that matt drudge appeared to be giving the same article big publicity with an over the logo, giant type headline:


expecting to find the usual deep link; directly to the ria novosti article we were surprised and suspicious to be taken to a copy and paste job from the drudgereport website instead:

a closer look reveals that besides mr. drudge not giving any credit whatsoever to the ria novosti website, he left out a couple of very important paragraphs from the article:
On the fate of the U.S. dollar, he said: "In 2006 a secret agreement was reached between Canada, Mexico and the U.S. on a common Amero currency as a new monetary unit. This could signal preparations to replace the dollar. The one-hundred dollar bills that have flooded the world could be simply frozen. Under the pretext, let's say, that terrorists are forging them and they need to be checked."

When asked how Russia should react to his vision of the future, Panarin said: "Develop the ruble as a regional currency. Create a fully functioning oil exchange, trading in rubles... We must break the strings tying us to the financial Titanic, which in my view will soon sink."
this couldnt have been a simple mistake on mr. drudge's part because he included the last sentence from the ria novosti article in his copy and paste job.

so, what is mr. drudge really up to by deceptively promoting a russian analysts prediction about the breakup of the usa while at the same time suppressing any mention of the amero currency and the north american union as well as the original articles origin?
