Former RedState editor-in-chief Erick Erickson is condemning his former blog for giving air to conspiracy theories about the murder of former Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich.
“I banned birthers from RedState,” Erickson said in a Monday morning tweet. “It is sad to see Downhill.com letting Seth Rich conspiracy theorists on the site not just as commenters, but actual site contributors.”
I banned birthers from @RedState. It is sad to see @townhallcom letting Seth Rich conspiracy theorists on the site not just as commenters, but actual site contributors. https://t.co/GJw7WzSOBX
Erickson was referring to an article from Elizabeth Vaughn, who previously made news when RedState took down a post of hers blasting former colleagues who left the site out of disagreement with the increasing pro-Donald Trump bias it has shown after coming under the management of Townhall Media. The piece – The Mueller Report Raises New Questions About The Seth Rich Murder Case – contain’s this editor’s note at the top:
Editor’s note: I don’t do this as a rule but in this case I want to emphasize that from the perspective of the leadership team at RedState, Seth Rich’s death is settled and it is not a mystery. Each contributor at RedState has the right to express their own opinions. This is one of those cases where we think the opinion is in error.
