The San Francisco Chronicle slimes

By Michelle Malkin  •  August 26, 2006 12:27 AM


This is Peter Hartlaub. He is the San Francisco Chronicle’s pop-culture critic and “helps cover movies, television and the media,” according to his bio. In addition to his newspaper duties, Hartlaub blogs for the paper’s “Culture Blog.” One of his latest posts is an astonishingly ugly, ad hominem attack on Ann Coulter–emblematic of the unhinged, intolerant Left. And it’s posted on a “culture” blog.

The jerk compares Coulter to a horse at a children’s zoo. He mocks her weight and her face by linking to sophomoric left-wing bloggers deriding her looks–including this, this, and this. He posts photos he took of the horse alongside photos of Coulter, then sits back and waits for Chronicle blog commenters to pile on. Here is a sample:




File this one away the next time the journalistic elite attacks bloggers as an unruly, uncivilized mob of hate-mongers in need of adult supervision. Under the guise of “culture” commentary, San Francisco Chronicle staffer/blogger Peter Hartloub displays the true colors of the moonbat mainstream media: slime green. Naturally, the anti-Coulter-obsessed staffers at media industry publication Editor and Publisher think Hartlaub’s post is funny.
