WaPo Profiles Malkin, Nutroots Go Nuts
Howard Kurtz does a mostly fair profile of Michelle Malkin in today’s Washington Post: A Hard Right Punch.
This, of course, has led to a blizzard of rage from the nutroots, who seem to maintain a special level of mean-spirited fury for Malkin. Ranters include:
Sadly, No! - Nice Love Letter, Howie.
Rising Hegemon: Things you learn on the internets
Firedoglake - Late Nite FDL: Death Threats from Malkin Readers (And Other Occupational Hazards of the Liberal Blogger)
And of course, Melissa McEwan:
Obviously, I absolutely 100% believe that anyone who does things like send threats or publish addresses is a scumbag, no matter to whom they’re doing it. BUT considering Malkin herself has published people’s addresses, and considering she was just part of the rightwing smear machine that accused me of anti-Catholic bigotry with no bloody evidence, not just on her blog but on The O’Reilly Factor, you’ll have to forgive my incredulity at the tone and timing of this story.
