Here's the dirty little secret of conservative blogging, at least as it appears to me: I'm sure the left is convinced we're all plugged in to the GOP and getting our Two Minute Hate of the Day from GOP central, and so on, and etc.I got banned from Little Green Footballs - which used to be a pretty good blog - for pointing this out. The Left of course think that this is how conservative blogs work, because that is how the Left works.
The actual truth is more scandalous. By and large (I can only speak for myself) the GOP itself and GOP candidates don't even bother trying to spin us or feed us something interesting to push.
Sometimes I despair.

Now, Steven's question can be interpreted, as what has driven Charles to start lying and spinning? I did not track what was happening with that guy in dorky hat after the debacle of "Open Source News" (I still think Instapundit is crazy to string his horse to the cart with such track record). Maybe it was the reson, may it occured later, I cannot remember. But I think the feud with anti-jihadists occured earlier than Pajamas. That's where being the king and punishing dissenters took precendence reporting the truth. I suspect Pajamas fell out of it. But who knows.

Don't know what happened at LGF. Could be partly burnout (I had it too, but like Steven, just stopped writing.) I still read over there once in a while. Just for old times sake.
I would, however, like to note that back when I was writing a lot, I got banned from only two blogs. Both of them were (what I would call) far-right. The lefty blogs where I commented just happily did their best to insult me, accuse me of being a racist, (odd since I never mentioned race) and the other usual no-logic responses to things they didn't agree with.
