"Salon is not necessarily pro-Bill Clinton. We have a lot of different viewpoints and when Congressman DeLay gets on the House floor today and accuses us of being in the White House's pocket, it's a bald-face lie... One of our editors called for his (Clinton's) resignation recently, so Tom DeLay and the other, they know we're not part of the spin machine. What they're threatened by is our independence."
