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.
More from the One Utah archive:
â€œMichelle Malkin is the most vile, hateful commentator Iâ€™ve ever met in my life. She actually believes that neighbors should start snitching out neighbors, and we should be deporting people. Itâ€™s good sheâ€™s in D.C. and Iâ€™m in New York. Iâ€™d spit on her if I saw her.â€
Yes, that is correct. Geraldo Rivera thinks Malkin is vile and hateful.
