The Hate Speech Inquisition

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 19, 2011 08:36 AM

Tucson massacre + Red Queen politics = Hate Speech Inquisition. I noticed a new game the blamestream media is playing this week. It’s the same game they played with Sarah Palin last week: Blame the victim. After a slew of Democrat leaders issued open threats against talk radio, conservative radio hosts rose up to defend […]

Lib talk radio flops again: Air America goes bankrupt

$6 billion payoff: Barney Frank gives in to Congressional Black Caucus shakedown crew

By Michelle Malkin  •  December 10, 2009 10:22 PM

Cue up “Do the Hustle.” Looks like the extortionists of the Congressional Black Caucus got their way. Last week, I noted the CBC’s efforts to squeeze bailout money from the Democrats’ financial “reform” package for minority-owned businesses — specifically, the failing radio/media empire of former Malcolm X lawyer and Air America/Jesse Jackson/Al Sharpton/Charlie Rangel crony […]

Congressional Black Caucus pushes bailout for Air America/Sharpton/Jackson crony

By Michelle Malkin  •  December 3, 2009 12:51 PM

Percy Sutton and Malcolm X, 1963. Well, well, well. The Congressional Black Caucus is trying to shake down the White House — and taxpayers — by holding a Democrat financial regulation “reform” bill hostage until Team Obama stuffs it with taxpayer goodies for a minority-owned radio station and other minority-owned businesses. The story is here […]

Waaah: Libs want segregated best-seller lists

Problem: Too many damned conservative authors dominating the New York Times best-seller lists. Solution: A Fairness Doctrine from books!

Connecting the “media justice” dots

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 3, 2009 01:50 PM

I’ve been spotlighting various members of the speech-stifling “media justice” mob over the past few weeks (here and here). They are Marxist-inspired activists seeking to crack down on conservative political speech under the guise of combating “hate” and crusading for “diversity.” Remember: “Social justice” = redistribution of wealth and economic “rights.” “Media justice” = redistribution […]

The “media justice” mob strikes again

Obama’s FCC, liberal churches, and the “media justice” mob

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 28, 2009 04:59 AM

My syndicated column today (reprinted below) probes the FCC/left-wing church alliance to silence conservative critics of illegal immigration through “hate speech” regulation. Tip of the iceberg. Jeffrey Lord at the American Spectator first broke the story of how United Church of Christ officials met with kindred spirit/FCC Commissioner Michael Copps earlier this month before launching […]

“Open a notice of inquiry into hate speech in the media.”

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 20, 2009 12:12 PM

The criminalization of conservative speech has been a recurring theme on this blog. In particular, I’ve spotlighted the efforts of open-borders groups to marginalize, criminalize, and demonize those of us who have raised our voices for years about lax immigration enforcement — and to impose a Fairness Doctrine-style policy on amnesty opponents. Keep all that […]

Rush and Beck on the Fairness Doctrine threat

By Michelle Malkin  •  August 27, 2009 11:19 AM

In case you missed it yesterday, Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck spotlighted Team Obama’s direct and indirect threats to free speech — and how the Fairness Doctrine (or some stealthier form of it) might be reinstituted. Watch the whole thing. Rush has the full transcript. An excerpt: BECK: Now joining me on the phone is […]

Green Czar vs. Glenn Beck; Britain vs. Michael Savage

By Michelle Malkin  •  August 14, 2009 09:56 AM

Dissent must not be tolerated. Jeff Poor reports on the left-wing boycott of Glenn Beck’s advertisers here. Matthew Vadum connects the dots to Obama’s Green Czar, Van Jones, co-founder of Color of Change. Erick Erickson launches a counter-boycott. Michelle Oddis reports on the Hollywood ties. A reader e-mails a link to a Support Glenn Beck […]

Meet the FCC Diversity Czar

By Michelle Malkin  •  August 7, 2009 01:01 PM

The far Left Center for American Progress has its tentacles everywhere. I noted in my column on the Internet Snitch Brigade this morning that former CAP operatives have been installed at HHS and work closely with the health care czar. At Newsbusters, Seton Motley reports on the new FCC “Diversity Officer” — a racial engineering […]

Obama’s FCC diversity engineers strike again

By Michelle Malkin  •  May 18, 2009 11:08 PM

The diversity-mongers on Barack Obama’s FCC bean-counting panel don’t like how a private radio ratings system is working out for their pet stations. So they’re putting pressure on the government to make Arbitron change its measurement tools to ensure politically correct results. Brian Maloney at The Radio Equalizer reports. Who needs the Fairness Doctrine? The […]

FCC: Funding Cronyism of Color

By Michelle Malkin  •  May 8, 2009 04:32 PM

I mentioned President Obama’s new FCC “diversity” panel earlier this week. Well, they met yesterday. And it was every bit as bad as expected. FCC Chairman Michael Copps denied that the panel would move to reinstitute the Fairness Doctrine. But the social engineering/racial bean-counting efforts are underway. Moreover, Judicial Watch yesterday announced that it had […]

Fairness Doctrine Watch: Sen. Stabenow makes new pro-gagging noise

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 5, 2009 05:13 PM

You know grass-roots conservatives on talk radio and in New Media are getting under the Democrats’ skin when they publicly renew their Fairness Doctrine agenda again. See. Loud Folks, keep cranking it up.

Chill wind alert: Conservative talkers sued to shut them up

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 9, 2008 06:28 PM

Radio Equalizer’s Brian Maloney reports on the latest attempt by leftist speech-chillers to level the talk radio playing field…by suing conservative talk radio hosts to shut them up and shut them down: Having failed to shut down conservative talk radio through every means possible, including well- funded attack sites, smear strategies and so much more, […]
