Hardly a newsflash, right? But Michelle, undeterred by the continual drubbing she gets for her own lack of journalism skills, hops on the Laura Ingraham bandwagon to criticize Lara Logan for her report on Haifa Street. Way to go, Michelle. Let's distract everyone with unprovable minutiae to divert attention away from how bad everything is, which is completely opposite of what you claim.
Today she's bitching about Lara Logan using video that may or may not have come from insurgent sources to illustrate her amazing story about a battle on Haifa street. The truth is, neither Malkin nor the blogger she links to can prove the video came from the insurgent sources, that the insurgents (or al Qaeda) released it first or that the insurgents didn't receive it from the same source from which Logan got the video
I worked with Lara Logan personally in Afghanistan and, to a person, every military member she came into contact with said the stories she aired about her time with them was dead-on honest--not to mention that, unlike Malkin who spent four days "embedded" with a unit showing her the fluffiest of fluff stories, Logan was nearly killed running the Afghanistan/Pakistan border with SpecOps types. Logan is the real deal. She's ten times smarter and ballsier than Malkin could ever hope to be and she doesn't have a political axe to grind. She doesn't deserve to be picked at by the likes of Fox News's Senior Racist Correspondent.
John Amato says:I hope she doesn't, but the way Lara Logan wailed on Laura Ingraham ---it might be kind of fun to check out her response. Michelle and her right wing nutosphere friends make the most scurrilous claims on the Internet. Then do a circle jerk linkathon. No proof required...
