A little while ago, after Andrea Tantaros’s lawsuit was made public, your humble correspondent was approached by Mediaite for an interview on the subject of Fox News ‘sock puppet’ twitter accounts. I said yes; Lindsey Ellefson submitted the questions via email and I responded. But the contemplated Mediaite post didn’t pan out, and Ms Ellefson agreed that we could publish the Q&A here, at J$P.
Best wishes from J$P for a happy and meaningful 4th of July.
