Human Events may want to take an adult education class in headline writing. This morning, Michelle Malkin, a right-wing blogger and “journalist”, was on the Today show with Matt Lauer to discuss her new book, “Culture of Corruption: Obama and His Team of Tax Cheats, Crooks, and Cronies.”
The conservative website, Human Events, posted the video on their website with the headline “Lauer Loses Cool During Malkin Interview.” It seemed rather odd that Lauer, a guy who usually seems pretty level-headed, would “lose his cool”, on national television nonetheless. After reviewing the video, however, there isn’t even a fleeting moment in which Lauer does anything that resembles a loss of temper.
Even when Malkin calls President Obama a “racial opportunist” and Michelle Obama “the first crony”, Lauer simply restates what Malkin said and asks how she can justify such sweeping, broad based claims. Malkin goes even further by attacking Lindsey Graham’s desire for more diversity in the Republican Party:
“I think Lindsay Graham has a history of pandering to this idea that somehow the party should broaden itself for the sake of pandering to diversity.”
Here’s the video, get ready for Lauer’s “insane” outbursts:
Rather than misrepresenting the content of an article for the sake of your own columnist, maybe Human Events should work on writing some more accurate headlines.
