Michelle Malkin: Going Against the Stream

Everyday, the mainstream news media, picks the subjects that will draw interest to their sites. Editorial decisions are made, and if some spectacular event occurs, all their eyes go to that story.

Recently we have seen the earthquake stories in Pakistan over shadowing the hurricane that hit Guatemala. In size and scale, the earth quake in the mid east has consumed 30,000 or more lives, the hurricane in Guatemala only a category 1, will have cost over a thousand. In both cases they are stabbing at the numbers, sometimes the scale is that large.

And while these events, and the usual run of the mill political stories are finding their place in the major media outlets. There are stories, that are going unreported, that the mainstream media has either placed on the back burner or not reported at all.

Michelle Malkin, who has a very respected blog, has been a news journalist, has written a New York Times Best Seller on terrorism, and I think she still works for Fox. She has been reporting on some very important stories about possible terrorism that is occurring today in the United States.

Bombings have happened at two universities in the United States. And there was a mysterious plane theft occurred in Florida from the same airport that the 9-11 terrorists had their training.

Michelle Malkin has been covering these stories diligently and intently, while the rest of the media has been otherwise preoccupied.

Didn't she write a book called "In Defense of Interment"?Is this really someone you admire?Admittedly I'm pretty far to the left,but there are people on the right I respect(John McCain and Colin Powell for instance.)Michelle Malkin is not one of them.

Thanks for your comments.

What I respected her for was not for the body of conservative work that she does, but for the following of unreported stories in the media.

Actually, I appreciate views from both sides of all issues. Views that make me think, and help me form my own opinions on the issues.

And in that regard, I try to encourage others to form their opinions, with flexibility, because there is always something to learn from each side of the fence.
