I told him that I would be delighted to give him an interview, as long as I can also interview Lee Fang. Keyes seemed taken aback, and asked what I wanted to question Fang about. I told him that I wanted to ask Fang why he never mentions Wal-Mart, and whether it is because Wal-Mart donated $500,000 to the group that owns Think Progress. I said I had lots more questions, too. Curiously enough, Keyes wasn't excited about the prospect of turning Lee Fang over to me for an interview. I told him that I would be happy to answer his questions, as soon as Think Progress makes Fang available to answer mine. The offer still stands.It's been my experience that Lee Fang's attacks not only lack substance, but also diverge from reality. Last summer he attacked SharpElbows.net by remixing one of Sharp's video's so as to invert the meaning. This little dust-up with the lawyers at Power Line and Legal Insurrection should be fun to watch. Pass the popcorn, as they say!
What is most notable about Fang's attack on me (and others, too, in the same post) is that not once does he address the substance of anything I have written about Think Progress's attacks. If Fang thinks that something I wrote can be disproved, now would be the time to speak up.
