Credulous Rightblogger Profiled in Newsweek
In the late election, RedState's Eric Erickson helped spread Ashley Todd's fraudulent "Obama mugger" story. Right after the election, he started "Operation Leper" to purge Palin doubters from the Republican Party.

Newsweek also notes RedState's "regular-folks crew" and "community network." RedState is part of Eagle Publishing, operators of Regnery Books.
