I was saddened to hear the news this morning that an online friend and former editor of mine, Alan Colmes, died this morning after a brief illness.

Editor of Liberaland, host of the Alan Colmes show on Fox News Radio, former co-host of the “Hannity and Colmes” show on Fox, Alan had the fortitude to stand up to the myriad right wing trolls who used the comment section on his site to spread their hate and ignorance, even standing up to the “Breitbots” who did their level best (and failed) to encourage Alan to “fire” me from my slot as an unpaid contributor to his website. He stood up for me. I will always remember and honor that.

No word at the moment on what caused his death. He had mentioned recently that he would take some time off to deal with an illness.

RIP, Alan Colmes.

Retired from his position as a writer/editor at the National Institutes of Health, Bill Schmalfeldt saw the willingness of a cadre of right wing idiots to destroy the life of an ex-con who had re-entered public life having served his time. He spoke out against this pack of hyenas and paid for it with false attacks on his own reputation and filthy, foul and profane mockery surrounding the death of his wife in 2015. Unbroken, Bill continues to write for Breitbart Unmasked and his private blog, http://theclintoniconoclast.com.
