Michelle Malkin is Tired of ‘Snotty Condescension from Liberal Elite Journalists Like Juan Williams’

Michelle Malkin and Juan Williams got into it last night on Sean Hannity‘s show over Attorney General Eric Holder‘s leak investigation. The debate devolved into a blogger vs. reporter face off when Williams charged, “Michelle, I’m a real reporter. I am not a blogger. Reporters go to officials…and…in a free society, we want to know what the government’s doing.”

That drew a laugh and sarcastic response from Malkin: “Right, ’cause I’m not a real reporter and you are.”

Added Malkin: “The American people are sick of the kind of snotty condescension from liberal elite journalists like Juan Williams who tell us the rest of us are not doing our jobs.”

Bill Press Strikes Back at Fox News: ‘They’re Very Good at the Name Calling, Aren’t They?’

Bill Press‘ remarks earlier this week calling the National Anthem “an abomination” have ignited a war of words between the Current TV host and Fox News. On Wednesday, Sean Hannity said he’d pay for a private jet to fly Press out of the country as long as Press promised “not to come back,” while FNC contributor Michelle Malkin said on “Fox & Friends” that Press hasn’t been relevant “since Bill Clinton was in office.”

“They’re very good at the name calling, aren’t they? I mean, communist, socialist, fascist — they don’t even know what the words mean — they just throw them out there,” Press responded on Cenk Uygur‘s Current TV show yesterday night. “If they like the Star Spangled Banner so much then let’s start with Bill O’Reilly. He can sing it. Sing it, right now. All four verses.” Watch:

Sean Hannity: Bill Press Just ‘Wants Attention’

Last night on Fox News, Sean Hannity‘s “Great American Panel” took on Current TV’s Bill Press for remarks he made yesterday calling the National Anthem “an abomination” and saying he is “embarrassed every time I hear it.”

The entire panel, including Democratic pollster Doug Schoen, disagreed with Press’ statement, with Hannity concluding that Press just “wants attention.”

“I’ll buy him a plane ticket anywhere else he’d like go to in this world,” panelist Leann Tweeden said.

“I’ll take it a step further. We’ll get him a private jet,” Hannity responded. “I’ll pay for it. But he’s got to promise not to come back.”

Press’ remarks were also the topic of a segment with FNC contributor Michelle Malkin on “Fox & Friends” this morning. “We are so lucky to live in this amazing country and let’s say and sing these words with dignity,” Gretchen Carlson said.

Greta on Ed: ‘After his suspension, let him off the hook and move on’

While Ed Schultz was delivering his apology for calling Laura Ingraham the “s” word that rhymes with “but” with an “l” in there, on MSNBC last night, Greta Van Susteren was hosting her show on Fox News. Today, Van Susteren writes on GretaWire that “it’s time to move on” that Big Ed’s apology “seems genuine.”

Laura ought to accept the apology, too, and just chalk it up to the competition going stupid. He is suspended by MS/NBC for two weeks and that seems like a just sanction but then the rest of us should, after his suspension, let him off the hook and move on. (No one died, someone just acted really boorish.) I think he got the message. It is easy to jump him if you don’t like him but remember that the next really stupid thing could be said by someone you like.

The Schultz comment was also discussed on “Hannity” last night and this morning on “Fox & Friends” with guest Michelle Malkin. The ladies of “The View” talked about it as well questioning why their flippant use of the word “slut” has not drawn ire like it has with Schultz. Mostly, it’s because Joy Behar and Ed Schultz are two totally different people. Totally different.

Who Should be Eliot Spitzer’s CNN ‘Work Wife?’

A couple of weeks ago, Daily Finance columnist Jeff Bercovici suggested that Eliot Spitzer, were he to sign a deal to join CNN’s still-to-be-decided 8 p.m. program, would need a “work wife” to keep him honest.

Now Bercovici has revisited the issue, suggesting five conservative women to be the yin to Spitzer’s yang. Who are his choices?

Sarah Palin, Monica Crowley, Laura Ingraham, Michelle Malkin and Liz Cheney.

Meanwhile, the New York Post reports that conservative columnist Kathleen Parker is the leading candidate to be paired with Spitzer.

What do you think? Is Parker a good choice? What about some of Bercovici’s suggestions?

Olbermann on Malkin: ‘A Big Mashed-up Piece of Meat with Lipstick on It.’ Malkin Responds

Keith Olbermann went after conservative pundit Michelle Malkin last night saying her “knee jerk fascistic hatred” led to threats against an author who spoke at New Jersey elementary school the same day that Barack Obama song/rap was performed. Olbermann called Malkin, “A big mashed-up piece of meat with lipstick on it:” Classy, Keith. Here’s the WPiTW segment, which included Glenn Beck too:

Malkin fired back on her blog early this morning: “In case you were wondering what kind of lipstick we big mashed up bags of meat wear, I prefer M.A.C. Lustreglass in Ornamental or Lipglass in Spite. Because nothing goes better with fascistic hatred!”

Letterman Blackmailed: Morning Reaction

Barrymore_10.2.jpgDrew Barrymore on CBS’ The Early Show: “I hope I didn’t start anything by jumping on his desk, I’ve always had fun there, it’s an unfortunate situation. I am no one to comment on it. I wish them the best.”

Donny Deutsch on “Morning Joe”: “We kind of have to draw a distinction between what happens in the workplace that is consensual and what is predatory … For us to put our heads in the sand where CEOs have relationships that can be love affairs, that can be productive … I am not here to defend the way David did it, but I think it’s naive to say relationships do not happen in the workplace. They do.”

Michelle Malkin on Fox & Friends: “I certainly don’t take any pleasure in hearing that he was the victim of an alleged shake-down … I hope the employee gets prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law … but you’re right to point out that there is irony here and it’s hard not to have a smidge of schadenfreude for somebody who’s shown contempt for women in public, in his monologues continuously and repeatedly especially during the campaigns and how he’s treated Sarah Palin and her family.”

• InTouch Weekly’s Tom O’Neill on CNN’s “American Morning: “Let’s be honest. You don’t think of David Letterman as a sexual object. But on the other hand he’s the classic bohemian. He’s a rascal. If this happened to Jay Leno, it might be damaging, but how damaging is it with Letterman’s audience?”

Megyn Kelly Lashes Out at Playboy For “Encouraging Hate, Intolerance, Misogyny”

Kelly_6.5.jpgCalling it a “vile attack,” Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly tore into Playboy and one of its writers over a story on Playboy.com (since pulled) which featured her and other women including Elizabeth Hasselbeck, Michelle Malkin, and Laura Ingraham.

Writer Guy Cimbalo generates what some are calling a ‘rape list,’ naming 10 women he deems ‘conservative’ and arguing that they generate a desire for hate sex among men. The bulk of this piece is devoted to crude attacks.

FNC reached out to Playboy for comment, but in Kelly’s opinion their statement did not go far enough.

It didn’t mean to encourage violence against women? That’s it? How about encouraging hate, intolerance, misogyny? Our viewers can make their own judgment about Playboy. But in my view, this is not the act of a publication that respects women in any way.
