Faux Noise has thrown Michelle Malkin (née Maglalang) under the bus for the Graeme Frost (SCHIP) story yesterday. It was a story that she waged (and lost) when she purchased an airline ticket to visit the Frost family hoping to harvest more viewers for her train-wreck of a political cause. Mainstream media couldn’t handle the information over-load and the GOP couldn’t handle any more bad press.
Her trip to the Frost’s home, photographing the family, a subsequent visit to Mr. Frost’s workplace and eventual trashing the family led one very popular commentator “mbecker908” on the conservative website RedState to say:
“If federal funds were required [the Frost children] could die for all I care. Let the parents get second jobs, let their state foot the bill or let them seek help from private charities. … I would hire a team of PIs and find out exactly how much their parents made and where they spent every nickel. Then I’d do everything possible to destroy their lives with that info.”
Fourteen angels wept while he/she/it wrote those words and Satan laughed while he ripped up the original text to the Gospel of St Mark 10:40.
Malkin’s travel follies made the GOP’s hatred towards America’s children look
bad worse than it already did. Malkin tried to bail by calling mbecker908 a “stupid Redstate commentator” but Faux Noise had already caved in and gave her the Walking Papers long over-due.
Did Malkin simply quit? (There’s another theory she “quit” because of her constant fighting with Geraldo. Bill O’Reilly gave Faux Noise the nudge-nudge and they got together and gave her the “wink-wink-nod-nod and good bye”.) Did she get fired? Perhaps she was hog-tied and carried off to a tropical island inhabited by Konservative Kristian Kannibals where she was slow-roasted and served up with a delicious mango-chutney sauce!! (We can only hope, can’t we?)
So far – ThinkProgress has the story and Comment #50 will buy you a PayDay.
I’ve got a friend at FoxNews. Malkin was forced to resign because, in the words of my friend, she’s “batshit crazy.” She was skating on thin ice there anyway, and she knew it.
The over-the-top attack on the Frost family was the last straw for Fox management. Believe it or not, there are actually some people capable of sustained abstract thought in the upper-echelons there. As her shtick got crazier and crazier over the past 9 months or so management grew less and less comfortable with her. Even O’Reilly wanted her out.
She cried during the meeting where her “resignation” was accepted. Apparently she was largely successful keeping the weeping under wraps but at some point she broke into long, mournful sobs as she was being led out of the building by security. Very awkward.
Why even bother with the whole “Malkin is a crack-whore” story in the first place? Because the story smacks of yet another Republican hate-speech that results in a horrible backlash.
- Recall the Rush Limbaugh v Michael J. Fox fiasco when in Rush’s stupidy, educated more Americans on the need for stem-cell research and the horrors of Parkinson’s Disease. That botched job of hatred called the Missouri Senate Race and resulted in the Democrats taking the majority in the US Senate. Limbaugh tried to back-peddle that stupid-move but it was too late.
- Recall the Don Imus story when he called the women on the Rutgers University basketball team “nappy-headed ho’s“. The result was Malkin herself going on Faux Noise saying:
“Oh, geez. Here we go with the ‘blame whitey’ again. Blame whitey.”
The hatred spewing from the Right Wing Ding Machine is slowly being realized by the American public. The GOP hates the poor and loves it when Bush slams poor little kids into worse conditions. What’s the next big “hate speech” hitting the fan? Watch mAnn Coulter put on her own bed-sheet, burn a cross in front of a Jewish Synagog and prattle on how she wishes Jews could be “perfected”!
(A personal hat-top to my good friend Nuveena in Austin, TX who spotted the “Comment #50” thing on Think Progress. “You’re a goddess, Sugar!!! XOXOXO”)
