Patterico has put together a damning case. It appears that Hiltzik is doing about the lamest thing I have heard of in the blogosphere yet. The evidence shows that Hiltzik is using (as Patterico puts it) "sock Puppet" identities to post at various websites. He'll praise himself and slam enemies, then come on as Hiltzik and praise the sock puppet.
Oh. My. God.
This is beyond lame. One other thing, should you ever be in court facing Patterico as the prosecutor, cop a plea. He's devastating at building a case.
