John Hawkins: Here's Why I Won't Include David Frum In My Advertising Syndicate

A representative of Frum complained that FrumForum was not allowed to join the Blogads Conservative Hive advertising network. And he sort of threatened Hawkins, kinda. At least he threatened to make a public fuss about it, which, honestly, isn't much of a threat, but okay:

John,

I shared your e-mail refusal to add FrumForum.com to the Blogads advertising hive because you dont consider it conservative to David and he said, .. You may tell him from me that I consider this decision a fascinating news story in its own right.

Yes, David Frum finds the topic of David Frum endlessly fascinating. This we already knew.

So Hawkins decided to make it a news story himself.

[I]f [being the MFM's go-to conservative basher is] what he wants to be known for, I'm certainly not going to do anything to help him stick a shiv deeper in the back of people who believe the things that I do. Maybe some people are willing to turn a blind eye because they know and like David personally, but I'm not his friend, I genuinely don't consider him to be a conservative or even someone who's friendly to the conservative movement, and I'm not willing to give him a pass for the way he behaves.

So, if you or David think it's a "fascinating news story in its own right, knock yourself out. Maybe David can write about it the next time he sneers at conservatives for Newsweek.

You may tell David that from me.

Look, if you buy an ad on Conservative Hive, you're buying an ad on all the blogs on Conservative Hive.

Does Frum not appreciate some people may not want to run ads on his site, and including him, then, in the group may be bad for the other bloggers' businesses?
