Mickey Kaus Tucker Carlson
After the conservative site’s editor-in-chief, Tucker Carlson, pulled a critical column about Fox News from the site, he quit his job at The Daily Caller back in 2015.
He had written a post attacking Fox for not being the opposition on immigration and amnesty — for filling up the airwaves with reports on ISIS and terrorism, and not fulfilling their responsibility of being the opposition on amnesty and immigration.
Mickey Kaus Trump
He said that there was Plenty to criticize in Trump’s response. But it’s pretty clear from the transcript he wasn’t calling the people doing the repulsive chanting “fine people.” He said there were others “protesting very quietly the taking down of the statue.” Distinguishes them from “the neo-Nazis”
He wrote that the problem is if they can pay $6,000 to a smuggler they will pay the application fee. And if they’re not detained they can always blow off their hearing and stay illegally. Don’t see how these changes are close to sufficient. Maybe I’m missing something!
In 1997 he wrote Slate’s “Chatterbox” column but started Kausfiles in 1999 as a private blog. He returned to Slate in 2002, at the invitation of editor Michael Kinsley. The daily readership of Kausfiles varied between 15,000 and 30,000 during 2003.
The blog was most notable for its interior monologues including the rules of a non-existent editor, as well as frequent, ironic exclamation points. James Wolcott a media critic used Kaus as the archetypal example of a type of pundit he labels “counterintuitive” in his book Attack Poodles and Other Media Mutants.
Kausfiles uncovered an interview with Arnold Schwarzenegger by Oui magazine during the 2003 California recall, in which he boasted of participating in group sex. The post sparked a series of claims of sexual misconduct during Schwarzenegger’s bodybuilding and acting career.
He later posted about a 1981 Today Show appearance where Schwarzenegger claimed that he deliberately damaged chimneys in order to boost demand for his bricklaying business, which was another scoop.
The blog displayed a strong and consistent distaste for John Kerry during the 2004 U.S. presidential election. Kausfiles has also consistently criticized the Los Angeles Times, Santa Monica radio station KCRW, media critic Howard Kurtz, and CNN President Jonathan Klein.
He also reported from an anonymous source that candidate John Edwards was having an affair with documentarian Rielle Hunter in 2007. He later left Slate and posted his blog on his campaign website, as a result of his 2010 run for the Senate.
The blog was relaunched at Newsweek on September 20, 2010.
