CALLER ID NEEDS TO BE MORE SECURE: Halo Video Game Executive Swatted At Home, Police Say. What, did he criticize Brett Kimberlin or something?

Ron and Bruce have […]
Ken White of Popehat excoriates The American Spectator for settling with Brett Kimberlin and taking down several articles about him: [T]his surrender will, and should, eviscerate its credibility with its target audience and its readers. First, how can it be taken seriously as an institution willing to speak truth to power if it caves to […]
We recently wrote about the Brett Kimberlin saga -- which is long and involved, and which we'd avoided jumping into for a long time, given how complex and nutty it was. If you're not familiar with it, go back and read that post to catch...Show More Summary
TechDirt: Reading Weigel’s account of the trial, you can quickly see why the judge ruled that way. So many of the points raised by Kimberlin clearly had nothing to do with anything coming anywhere near defamation, but rather were focused on “people said mean things online.”....

Dave Weigel has this lengthy recap of the state trial between Brett Kimberlin and four conservative bloggers. Notable: “These guys are going to come out today and say I’m a pedophile,” said Kimberlin. “And tomorrow, I can file another lawsuit against them. And now I know what I need to do.

SO I GOT A VOICEMAIL FROM STACY MCCAIN SAYING HE WON HIS TRIAL AGAINST (CONVICTED TERRORIST BOMBER) BRETT KIMBERLIN. No surprise there.

Of course. What kind of land doesn’t allow folks like O.J. Simpson or Brett Kimberlin to vote? Note the way Holder phrases his objection: Disenfranchisement of the formerly incarcerated is unnecessary, unjust and counterproductive, Attorney General Eric Holder told an audience at the Georgetown University Law Center on Tuesday. “At worst, these laws, with their [...]
“Breitbart Unmasked” is a cheap little site that runs blatant propaganda for Brett Kimberlin. If anyone is trying to hide the relationship, they’re either not trying very hard, or really bad at it; Kimberlin often provides the site with exclusive information that could not have come from any source — such as the photographs of [...]
