RUMOR MILL: Mickey Kaus is spreading rumors about trouble at The American Prospect. Kaus says TAP will announce Wednesday that they'll be publishing less frequently, and that Tapped, the Prospect's only readable product, will be killed for being too independent of Bob Kuttner. The Kausfiles item, says Mickey, may be the first that TAP staffers hear of this.

Tapped hasn't updated today. I think Kaus's clock is on Pacific time, so his item has only been up for a little over an hour and a half, but I'd imagine it has TAP staffers abuzz. I'll be interested to see if or how Tapped reacts publicly. I hope it's by quashing the rumors; the blogosphere will miss them.
