Ali and Robert Stacy McCain (@RSMcCain) will examine what drives progressives who seek -- but do not obtain -- attention on the Internet and why that causes some of them to make vile deranged threats.

Bill Schmalfeldt of Maryland has a long record of failures behind him, truck driving, failed journalist gigs, and the abandonment of his child, but it appears he's not done yet. Dozens of failed blogs, domain names, even changing his name hasn't worked! The show will examine why a court has ordered him to stop harssing his victims and bloggers.
Just google "Bill Schmalfeldt" and click away!
Huffington Post contributor, Pascal Robert, made a sexually-charged quip at conservative commentator Dana Loesch via Twitter recently. It's not got the attention of, well, everyone.
What makes trolls like Schmalfeldt and Robert continue? What prevents them from succeeding in the normal day-to-day life? Is it surprising that progressives have distanced themselves from these loud failures?
Which troll is worse, Bill Schmalfeldt who defends pedophilia and uses racist and homo-erotic pron to liable his victims or Pascal Robert who similarly, pointed to his sexual organs to attack someone with greater fame who has a different set of politics?
