The NYTimes-Wikipedia whitewash

By Michelle Malkin  •  June 29, 2009 06:32 AM

Would Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales have done this for Fox News or the Washington Times? And if he had/has, wouldn’t the New York Times editorial page blast him for colluding to suppress information from the public? For seven months, The New York Times managed to keep out of the news the fact that one of […]

The Return of the Poet-Soldiers

By mmguestblogger  •  March 16, 2007 11:08 PM

Brian Turner is a part time professor at a Bay Area college and a published poet. He’s also a soldier. Words written by the light of a red-tinted flashlight offer a poet’s-eye view of American soldiers’ life in Iraq: the fear, the loss, the heartache, the uncertainty and the rare moments of calm and beauty […]

Troll Hunting

By mmguestblogger  •  March 14, 2007 09:03 PM

Comparing notes with Blackfive today, it appears we’ve both been infected with the same “sock puppet” troll. So, as a public service to bloggers and bulletin board moderators everywhere, I’m publishing the details on the troll I call “Punk.” IP addresses: 68.33.185.185 — Rockville MD (work?) 66.160.120.185 — Washington DC (home?) 68.62.72.192 — Auburn Hills […]

Meet Ben

By mmguestblogger  •  March 13, 2007 02:04 PM

Hi, I’m Ben, a 25-year-old white guy from rural Virginia. I used to be a directory assistance operator, but now I work at the Wal Mart in Waynesboro. I still live with my parents. Sometimes, I like to go to the big city and play in the streets. My favorite game is to dress up […]

Fakeapedia?

By Michelle Malkin  •  March 7, 2007 12:26 AM

Via the BBC: Internet site Wikipedia has been hit by controversy after the disclosure that a prominent editor had assumed a false identity complete with fake PhD. The editor, known as Essjay, had described himself as a professor of religion at a private university. But he was in fact Ryan Jordan, 24, a college student […]

Big Lizards: Jamil, We Hardly Knew Ye

By mmguestblogger  •  January 12, 2007 09:30 PM

Under no circumstances should anybody even imagine, even for a nanosecond entertain the notion, that this post is by our dearest Michelle (who is either in Iraq or in next-door Okinawa, as I understand it, but I’ve never been either place, so what do I know?) Rather, this post is by Dafydd of Big Lizards […]

Blast at U.S. Embassy in Greece: ‘Act of Terrorism’

By mmguestblogger  •  January 12, 2007 03:22 AM

A broken window is seen behind the emblem of the U.S. Embassy in Athens, Greece. (AP)No injuries, thank God, and minor damage. The blast smashed glass in the front of the building near the U.S. emblem of the embassy. Police did not report any injuries and embassy officials could not immediately be reached for comment. […]

Triumph des Caliphs

By See-Dubya  •  January 10, 2007 03:33 AM

Leni Riefenstahl’s 1935 film “Triumph des Willens” (Triumph of the Will) went a long way toward making the Nazis look cool, or at least, rather less like a bunch of pasty sausage-gobbling dorkozoids. Now, consider this “promotional” film for the radical Muslim group Hizb-ut-Tahrir (more about them here and here). Although they take themselves every […]

Big Lizards: Media Matters In the Meme Streets of Baghdad – B

By mmguestblogger  •  January 8, 2007 05:52 PM

Continued from previous Lizard post… This post is by Big Lizards (mostly Sachi), not by our dearest Michelle; the host is on holiday somewhere — I couldn’t quite make out where she was, but she shouted something that sounded remarkably like “earache.” Faugh; earache, my eye. You put your left foot in… If the mainstream […]

For Unto Us A Child Is Born

By Michelle Malkin  •  December 25, 2006 09:30 AM

Mystical Nativity by Sandro Botticelli For unto Us a Child is born Unto Us a Son is given And the government shall be upon His shoulder And His name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. – Isaiah 9:6 Merry Christmas, dear readers. Hope your day is […]

The Sunni-Shia Cheat Sheet

By Michelle Malkin  •  December 12, 2006 12:55 PM

Attention, congressional staff members on both sides of the aisle: Please have your bosses read this Dean Barnett Sunni-Shia Cheat Sheet over the holidays in order to avoid another Jeff Stein gotcha moment. While you’re at it, The Truth About Muhammad would make an informative gift for the clueless. Bryan Preston offers his recommended reading […]

Sunday fun: Left-handed compliment

By Michelle Malkin  •  December 10, 2006 11:41 AM

Left-handers of the world, unite! We left-handed people have a special bond. At book signings, left-handers always make a point of noticing that I’m one of them. Fellow left-handers will ask which hand I shoot or bowl with (right-handed–but I crochet and sew left-handed). We all have stories of elementary school persecution. We have the […]

Iran bans YouTube & Amazon.com & even the NYTimes website

By Michelle Malkin  •  December 3, 2006 11:21 PM

Like I said earlier today, information wants to be free. And freedom is something Iran is just not going to tolerate. Via The Guardian (hat tip: Greg Tinti): Iran yesterday shut down access to some of the world’s most popular websites. Users were unable to open popular sites including Amazon.com and YouTube following instructions to […]

Blabbermouth NYT: Help! Help! Help!

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 29, 2006 12:00 PM

Rebuffed by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the NYTimes puts out a desperate editorial this morning asking someone, anyone–paging Nancy Pelosi!–to help protect them from accountability for protecting illegal leakers and reporters accused of tipping off terrorist charities: A journalist’s ability to protect the identity of confidential sources has been further eroded by the Supreme Court’s […]

Love, laughter, passion

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 29, 2006 12:06 AM

Two simple, little reminders about the things that matter most. The first is from the Times of London: “Mother in coma laughs at her children’s jokes.” A mother of two who has spent two years in a coma has started chuckling at her children’s jokes. It was the first sound Andrea Brushneen, 31, had made […]

Tracking down Iraqi snipers

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 24, 2006 04:00 PM

Howie at The Jawa Report points me to Juba Online, an apparent jihadi sniper site that glorifies the murder of our American soldiers. They’ve been around for a year. The site affiliates itself with the Islamic Army, which happens to be the same group that supplied CNN the Global Sniper News Network with its terrorist […]

al Jazeera’s pet State Department mouthpiece

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 22, 2006 10:30 AM

Meet Alberto Fernandez: State Dept. apologist for jihad Alberto Fernandez, director of public diplomacy in the Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs at the US State Department, is al Jazeera’s favorite pet tool. He has been praised as “sassy” and is a fixture on Arab TV. From a Newsweek profile published in August, which proclaimed him […]

Predators in the House

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 2, 2006 10:10 AM

Disgraced GOP Rep. Mark Foley’s instant messages with an underage page are absolutely appalling. He was a 54-year-old man abusing his position of power with a 16-year-old boy. Based on all the reporting so far, and there may yet be more to come, Rep. Foley was exactly the kind of sexual predator–“sicko,” in his own […]

The persecution of Lina Joy

By Michelle Malkin  •  August 25, 2006 04:04 AM

Apostasy. The last time I visited the subject, an ex-Muslim man’s life was at stake in Afghanistan. Remember Abdul Rahman? Now, meet Lina Joy. Like Rahman, she was born Muslim, converted to Christianity, and is facing death threats for abandoning Islam. She wants to marry a fellow Christian man in her native Malaysia. A Muslim […]

Culture of corruption

By mmguestblogger  •  August 15, 2006 05:32 PM

Harry Reid had to return a contribution of $3000, with interest, to one Ben Barnes because Barnes is a lobbyist and accepting money from lobbyists is a no-no: Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev., last year refunded a $3,000 check he got in 1999 from a Texas friend, Ben Barnes, after a public interest group revealed it […]

Jihad and Dhimmitude: A Real-Life Test Case

By mmguestblogger  •  August 15, 2006 09:23 AM

Since Michelle has so generously launched me into GuestBlog-dom as someone who, as she puts it, gave her a nudge “in the right direction on jihad and dhimmitude,” I’ll take the bait and hit the topic straight off. Above all else, understanding jihad and dhimmitude is crucial to understanding what we call the war on […]

Fox News’ Steve Centanni and Cameraman Kidnapped in Gaza

By mmguestblogger  •  August 14, 2006 02:55 PM

I haven’t heard Fox report on it yet, but Drudge links this story: Palestinian gunmen ambushed a car carrying a Fox News crew in Gaza City on Monday and kidnapped two of the journalists inside, according to witnesses and Fox. “We can confirm that two of our people were taken against their will in Gaza,” […]

What’s wrong with this picture?

By Michelle Malkin  •  August 14, 2006 03:52 AM

Via London Telegraph Answer: Nothing–unless you are a British Passport Office worker who fear the wrath of Muslim fanatics offended by a little girl’s bare shoulders. Her passport application was rejected by bureaucrats who told the girl’s mom “that the exposed skin might be considered offensive in a Muslim country.” I suppose if the girl […]
