Asked what lessons liberal and progressive bloggers could learn from the experience of FreeRepublic, [Kristinn] Taylor replied that while "I'm loath to give them advice," they might have to outgrow the conspiracy-theory stage of blogging to produce reports that are credible and relevant to a wider audience.

"In the old days of FreeRepublic," he said, "we had all kinds of black helicopters" and speculation about the effect of the Y2K problem. After the world did not end on Jan. 1, 2000, he said, "We tried to be more realistic."

Er, that wouldn't be the same Kristinn who said this at Free Republic on February 22, would it?

What happened to [Jeff] Gannon was a Clintonista hit. It had nothing to do with his alleged past, but everything to do with insulting Her Heinous in a nationally televised press conference.
