Why Michelle Malkin is a Bad Person

Malkin enjoys trip to Baghdad

Yesterday, in the comments, “Maggie” made the mistake of mentioning the name of one Michelle Malkin. This post is to remind us all why Malkin is a bad person.

It’s because of Jamil Hussein. Hussein, an Iraqi police captain, was quoted by name in a November 24, 2006 Associated Press story about sectarian violence in Baghdad. Because Malkin and other right-wing bloggers falsely accused the AP of using a fictitious source, and pressed the issue for weeks, Captain Hussein was then threatened with arrest for telling the truth to a reporter without authorization.

Malkin even made a three-day trip to Baghdad last January, as a guest of the US Army, in a vain and idiotic attempt to disprove AP’s story. Making a mockery of real journalists, and of the ongoing humanitarian tragedy in Iraq.

Malkin Going to Baghdad – Really!

Malkin Gets the Real Story – NOT

UPDATE: Malkin recently lost her job on Faux News Channel to Laura Ingraham after Geraldo Rivera told the Boston Globe:

“Michelle Malkin is the most vile, hateful commentator I’ve ever met in my life. She actually believes that neighbors should start snitching out neighbors, and we should be deporting people. It’s good she’s in D.C. and I’m in New York. I’d spit on her if I saw her.”

Yes, that is correct. Geraldo Rivera thinks Malkin is vile and hateful.

    What always amazed me about Michelle Malkin’s followers (even before you start digging into her ethical challenges as a human being) was that she was so often utterly and completely wrong about everything, yet they would quote and defend her so zealously.

    Never made much sense.

    Jason The – You could have just as easily said:

    What always amazed me about Bush’s followers (even before you start digging into his ethical challenges as a human being) was that he was so often utterly and completely wrong about everything, yet they would quote and defend him so zealously.

    You’re right. It never made much sense.
