Part 1 is here.

Picking up with Mickey Kaus quitting The Daily Caller after Tucker Carlson took Kaus's column critiquing Fox off TheDC website because, Kaus says, Carlson told him TheDC can't trash Fox because he (Carlson) works there...

"He [Daily Caller editor Tucker Carlson] said it was a rule, and he wouldn't be able to change that rule. So I told him I quit," Kaus explained.

Reached via email, Carlson told On Media: "Mickey is a great guy, and one of the few truly independent thinkers anywhere. I'm sorry to see him go."

NB: Fox does not own the Daily Caller. Carlson is a host of a Fox weekend show. 



Kaus will now publish his columns exclusively...

On March 17, Politico carried the story of why it was that Mickey Kaus quit the Daily Caller.

Politico:

The blogger Mickey Kaus has quit his job at The Daily Caller after the conservative site's editor-in-chief, Tucker Carlson, pulled a critical column about Fox News from the site, Kaus told the On Media blog on Tuesday.

Newsmax has just announced its 2015 list of the Top Fifty Conservative Blogs and, whaddya know, this very blog comes in as Jackie Robinson -- #42.

Newsmax writes:

Diana West - One of the most prominent of a new breed of polemicists for an assertive and morally confident U.S. foreign policy, the "American Betrayal" author recently used controversy over GOP senators writing to Iran’s rulers to warn of a time when congressional Democrats and the press “willingly lock shields around a king-like executive branch.” She suggested that the letter should be readdressed “to the Obama administration and members of the U.S. media.” Quoting the letter to Tehran, she argued, “They don’t ‘fully understand our constitutional system,’ either!”

What turned out to be one of Stan Evans' final contributions to the the truth of the record was an article he wrote last year called "McCarthyism by the Numbers." This "sampler," as Stan called it, contains a table of 50 McCarthy suspects named by McCarthy, his aides, or in his committee hearings who proved to be Communists, Soviet agents or who took the Fifth Amendment when asked about such matters.
