Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum claims he no longer reads the Drudge Report anymore because it contains “propaganda” that helps rival Mitt Romney.

“I’ve stopped reading Drudge,” Santorum says of the influential news website in “Inside the Circus,” a soon-to-be released eBook on the 2012 Republican race for president.

Added Santorum: “It’s gotten ridiculous—Romney propaganda.”

The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the new eBook, authored by Mike Allen and Evan Thomas. The book comes out Tuesday.

Santorum has aired complaints about what he calls the Drudge Report’s bias against him before. Last month, the former Pennsylvania senator referenced a story on the news website during a radio interview, saying, “Drudge, again showing for Romney, gets the facts wrong.”
