Return of the feckless Chick-fil-A-phobes by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2018 Move over, Trump Derangement Syndrome. Another unhinged liberal pathology is back: Chick-fil-A-phobia. Perhaps, in the interest of public health, the CDC should launch a weekly C-F-A-P surveillance report to map the recurrence of this culturally infectious disease. Early-onset symptoms include fear of pressure-cooked... Read More
I've chronicled the radical Left's war on JROTC and campus recruiters for years. Now, the war has been taken up by "mainstream" media journalists recklessly inciting hatred of one of the nation's most effective youth leadership programs. Shame, shame, shame: It’s one thing for gun control extremists and Democrat demagogues to wage war on the... Read More
On Fire: The Racist Anti-Racists at MTV News by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2017 It's only the second week of 2017, but it's already been a banner year for preening liberals on cable TV who are hell-bent on self-immolation in the name of proving everyone else's moral inferiority. To use young people's slang these... Read More
The Messy Truth about Race-Baiting Radical Demagogue Van Jones by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2016 They never learn. The grand journalism pooh-bahs at CNN were humiliated this election cycle when WikiLeaks revealed that former CNN contributor and interim DNC chair Donna Brazile had shared a question with the Hillary Clinton campaign in advance of... Read More
Debate Depressive Disorder by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2016 How many more broadcast bust-ups will it take before America finally decides to make its presidential election debates tolerable again? I can't take it anymore. Can you? For the past three cycles -- 2008, 2012, and 2016 -- I've chronicled the depressing, systemic bias of... Read More
A tale of two tapes: Teen Cruz vs. Terror-Coddler Obama by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2016 The crack media buzzed this week with the discovery of a totally front-page, news-breaking, breathtaking videotape. GOP presidential candidate and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, CNN reported, was caught on camera confessing how he "sought 'world domination.'" Gasp! This... Read More
When your citizen "town hall" is invitation-only and jointly co-produced by CNN and the Obama White House, every participant is a potted plant. As I reminded you in my syndicated column before tonight's Kabuki town hall on guns, both Obama and CNN have a long history as manufactured-narrative gardeners. Right on cue, or rather left... Read More
Inside the garden of political town hall plants by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2016 On Thursday, CNN will host a town hall with President Obama as part of his "final-year push to make gun control part of his legacy." In addition to sitting down with liberal anchor Anderson Cooper, the network says Obama will... Read More
Melissa Harris-Perry Needs a Trip to Hard Work U by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2015 MSNBC's Melissa Harris-Perry is the cable TV pioneer who broke the tastelessness barrier for feminists by wearing tampons as earrings on air in 2013. This week, she made ignominious history again -- as the race-baiting fool in an ivory... Read More
The Fallon-ization of Freaky-Deaky Dunham and Lyin' Williams by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2015 Comedian Jimmy Fallon is a celebrity fraud's best friend. He's an answer to normal America's question: How do creepy stars get away with their grotesqueries? If you're lucky enough to sit by his late-night throne and join his cool-kid games,... Read More
As I'm sure you've all heard by now, NBC News anchor Brian Williams -- a real journalist -- finally admitted he has been lying about coming under RPG fire in Iraq in 2003. Fed-up troops called him out, but even after being forced to 'fess up, he still clung to lies and "misremembrance." I am... Read More
Diagnosing David Gregory: NBC's Cognitive Dissonant Hack Syndrome by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2014 I've always thought entrenched left-wing journalists in Washington needed their heads examined. Much to my satisfaction, it appears the corporate media bosses of at least one Beltway anchor now agree. According to The Washington Post this week, NBC News hired... Read More
Here we go again. Liberal media outlets CNN and MSNBC have joined forces with the biased, numbers-cooking Southern Poverty Law Center and New America Foundation to foment renewed fear and hatred of conservative Americans. Their latest talking point: "Right-wing" terrorists have caused more American deaths than Islamic jihadists since 9/11. CNN ran with the "story"... Read More
Alec Baldwin, Drama Queen by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2014 Bad boy-turned-bellyacher Alec Baldwin threw a 5,000-word, seven-page pity party for himself in the entertainment media he says he abhors. Hey, what better way for a Hollywood narcissist to protest the attention-starved shallowness of celebrity life than to wallow in it to the bitter... Read More
The amazing Twitchy.com family (from L to R: Sarah, Jenn, Lori, William, Jesse, Doug, and Brett) With fellow history/tinkerer nerd, Glenn Beck It's been a hectic couple of months at Casa Malkin! As many of you have noticed, I've been absent from the TV airwaves since the summer. That's because I've been immersed in research... Read More
While most normal, decent human beings are repulsed by Rolling Stone's glorification of accused Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokar Tsarnaev, the groupies are pissed that he doesn't look hot enough. Really. Like I said last week in my column on the Tiger Beat Terrorist fangirls: I would like to declare a war on women — namely,... Read More
The most transparent administration ever, LOL by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2013 Sun, sun, sun, here it comes. Welcome to the Summer of Belated Epiphanies. Media lapdogs are finally, finally arriving at the conclusion that maybe this isn't the most transparent administration in world history, after all. On Tuesday, the Associated Press reported on...

The Open-Borders "Journalists" Who Banned "Illegal Immigrant" by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2013 File this in the overflowing cabinet labeled: No Wonder the Mainstream Media Is Dying. On Tuesday, the Associated Press announced that it is banishing the phrase "illegal immigrant" from its famous stylebook. The world's largest newsgathering outlet now advises reporters that... Read More
Two weeks ago, the lying liars of the "mainstream media" manufactured a "heckling" narrative smearing Second Amendment activists at a Newtown, Conn., town hall meeting. Today, we've got lib journos making up false claims about the former Navy SEAL who shot bin Laden and doubling down. And then there's the obnoxious Washington Post "journalist" Suzi... Read More
Read all about it: Here. Here. Here. Here. Here. Here. And here. There's an old saying that goes "A lie can travel halfway around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes." Thanks to Twitter, conservative media, and citizen watchdogs who have the audacity to question monopoly lib media narratives, truth can now... Read More

In August, I blasted the Commission on Presidential Debate's choices of three Beltway lib journo-tools -- CNN’s Candy Crowley, PBS’s Jim Lehrer and CBS’s Bob Schieffer. So far, they've acted just as expected and predicted. As I noted: While the debate panel trumpeted the gender diversity of its picks, the chromosomal diversity is far outweighed... Read More
CNN's Candy Crowley will be moderating tomorrow night's second presidential debate. It will be a 90-minute town hall forum at Hofstra University on Long Island, east of New York City. Both the Obama and Romney campaigns signed a "memorandum of understanding" about how the debate will be run. But Crowley is already making noises that... Read More
The media crazy train is standing room only. As the GOP and the Right have gotten better and better at telling their stories and pushing back against progressive narratives, the gate-keepers who once held a monopoly on controlling the airwaves and printing presses have become more than unhinged. They've become completely untethered from rationality: -... Read More
SQUIRREL!!!!!!!!!!
Remember when all the journalists laughed and laughed at President Obama's birth certificate jokes at the White House Correspondents Dinner? Well, it's not funny, anymore...now that GOP presidential rival Mitt Romney has made a light-hearted birth certificate joke of his own. It's full freak-out time for the Left and the Left Media. Water-carrying business as... Read More
Journo-tools For Obama by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2012 Can we stop calling the hosts of the presidential debates "moderators"? They're left-erators. It's time for the old media godfathers to end the pretense that they're fair and neutral observers of the American political scene. And it's time for the GOP to stop perpetuating these... Read More
Scroll down for update... At RightOnline in Las Vegas this weekend, those of us in the "Just A Blogger" club hammered away at the MSM journalistic elites and their self-serving double standards. Fantastic keynote speaker Sarah Palin mocked the inhabitants of MakeUpCrap-istan who disparage investigative bloggers while manufacturing the news themselves to fit their agendas.... Read More
Nice media smackdown, Bryce Harper! *** We need to turn this phrase on its head, though. Every time Jay Carney hem-haws, a journalist needs to work up the courage to say: That's a clown answer, bro."
Last week on Hannity, we joked about the iconography and media worship making a comeback on TV airwaves and newspaper pages. I made reference to the old "Glowbama" phenomenon of halos and light. Right on cue, here's Reuters with its magical rainbow pic from Air Force One. Click for full-size. It's been a while since... Read More
Scroll for updates... Let me quote from the National Public Radio ethics handbook: First, on "impartiality:" Impartiality Our experiences and perspectives are valuable assets to our journalism. We enjoy the right to robust personal lives, yet we accept some unique professional obligations and limitations. Because our words and actions can damage the public's opinion of... Read More
Question: Why isn't this national front-page news? Answer: Just as most national media outlets have dutifully whitewashed Barack Obama's ethics scandals, they're dutifully whitewashing their own. Ed Morrissey: The worst damage to the credibility of these journalists is probably the excuse they offered Gannett. According to Kevin Corrado, the president and publisher of Gannett’s Green... Read More
What's the matter with Soledad O'Brien? by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2012 CNN's Soledad O'Brien isn't used to criticism. In the world of media elites, she's a beloved figure and an award-winning news anchor. But last week, she revealed her true, decidedly non-neutral colors. And she's not happy about the hoi polloi questioning her... Read More
This was attached to the end of a nauseating Boston Globe article celebrating the amorous relations between Occupy protesters: Editor’s note: This story about relationships that began during Occupy Boston featured a man, Robert Stitham, who is a registered sex offender, according to state records. Had his status been discovered during reporting, the story would... Read More
Yes, again. Those bulldozers are working overtime. Over Thanksgiving, I told you about the last batch of White House visitor logs quietly dumped over a busy holiday season. I noted MSNBC host Rachel Maddow's August 5 visit (along with several other prog media personalities). It was her fifth visit to Casa Obama; she didn't respond... Read More
People make honest mistakes. When right-leaning people make them, Soros-funded Media Matters turns it into Apocalypse Now and an opportunity to discredit all of conservatism. But when liberal journos err, it's like the proverbial trees falling in the forest. Does anybody hear the muffled sound? Last night while I was on Twitter, a few left-leaning... Read More
Wow. Just wow. (h/t Dan Collins) Huffington Post explains (h/t collegepolitico Stephen Gutowski): Like Dan says: "What if this had happened on Fox?" Over to you, NAACP, Al Sharpton, the Congressional Black Caucus, and FCC.
Don't screw with me! Joe Biden: Beltway Bubble Boy by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2011 Last fall, before the midterm shellacking, Vice President Joe Biden admonished rank-and-file Democratic voters to "stop whining." Uncle Tough Guy should practice what he screeches. The 2012 campaign has barely begun, but Biden's thin skin makes a spring roll... Read More
I'm sure you all saw what the Washington Post did this weekend. The newspaper tried to macaca Rick Perry. The frenzy is over a now-overturned stone on a secluded property -- "associated" with Perry through his father, partners or his signature on a lease -- that once had the word "Niggerhead" painted on it. The... Read More
Heads are rolling in the News of the World hacking scandal aftermath. As they should be. Several editors and London police officials have resigned. More are undoubtedly on the way. A former NoTW reporter-turned-whisteblower who suffered from drug and alcohol addictions has now tragically turned up dead -- compounding a global media tragedy that has... Read More
In January, I published "The progressive 'climate of hate:' An illustrated primer, 2000-2010." Review it here. Part IV was a section on anti-conservative female hate, with tons of links on the sexist rhetoric of the Left. You'll recall that the “M” in MSNBC stands for misogyny. Here's a new entrant in the race to the... Read More
It's time for the MSM to put its drool buckets in permanent storage. In the past month, we've had: -- The Pleasanton (CA) Weekly bullied by the White House press shop over a benign article that irked the administration because it made Michelle Obama look snooty. -- The San Francisco Chronicle punished by the White...

San Fran new media ban.
Most open, high-tech, accessible administration....(n)ever. Yes, it's true. The social media-darling-in-chief has banned a San Francisco Chronicle reporter for using her cell phone to capture video of left-wing protesters at the Bay Area Obama fundraiser earlier this week. Banned. The White House press shop refuses to comment on the record about it -- and, no... Read More
If the obscure and has-been comedians who appear on National Public Radio want to mock conservatives and spread left-wing propaganda, they should do it on their own damned dime. The government-sponsored radio conglomerate broadcasts a weekend show called "Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me!" It leans heavily on laugh tracks to prop up the lame punchlines of... Read More
This moronic attack started percolating on the blogs and Twitter over the past week: Fox News hosts and contributors including Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin, yours truly, and others are greedy, union-bashing hypocrites who are card-carrying members of AFTRA. Here's a typical rant: And here's another: Glenn Beck and the rest of the Fox... Read More
Lara Logan in Cairo on Friday before she suffered a sustained beating and gang sexual assault. Image: CBS I haven't always had kind words for CBS News, but I've always admired reporter Lara Logan's guts and willingness to report on the ground and on the battlefield around the world -- even if I didn't agree...

The anchor who once shouted that he "wished he brought a gun to work" after his Magic Screen malfunctioned (h/t Allahpundit), and who works for the network that made "Crossfire" famous (see Doug Powers for an iconic screenshot), is now interrupting his show for real-time p.c. language self-policing of guests who use the term "crosshairs:"... Read More
En fuego!
En fuego! Man, I thought those Palin-bashers who didn't know when the Boston Tea Party occurred took the hate cake. I was wrong. Here's the errrrrrudite liberal journo Richard Wolffe mocking Sarah Palin for citing famed, beloved Christian author, novelist, lay theologian, and apologist C.S. Lewis as a source of divine inspiration (via The Daily... Read More
The media is filled with left-wing activists. The race card is the first and last refuge of liberal scoundrels. The race-card playing liberals in the media tried their best to whitewash Barack Obama's radical ties to Jeremiah Wright and other race demagogues. We hold these truths to be self-evident, but it's always useful to see... Read More
I've been flagging the MSM newspaper bailout campaign for the last two years (chronology recap here). The clamor for big government to rescue old media has not died now. The latest? Columbia University president Lee Bollinger doing the Chicken Little routine in the pages of the Wall Street Journal. Really: We have entered a momentous... Read More
