NPR Smears Michelle Malkin After Her Cousin Goes Missing

NPR smeared Michelle Malkin today in a tasteless comedy segment. The channel aired a comedy sketch that suggested that Michelle was obsessed with Obama’s background and faith. Of course, this is not true at all.

What is true is that Michelle Malkin is working tirelessly to locate her missing cousin in Seattle.

Michelle’s cousin Marizela Perez has been missing since March 5.

NPR felt this was a good time to attack the popular conservative.
Gently Hew Stone reported:

This morning on NPR’s popular comedy show, Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me, a segment aired where a contestant had to choose which of three strange news stories was actually true. One of the (false) options concerned conservative commentator Michelle Malkin. The NPR show joked that, after Malkin had advertised her belief that President Obama is a “secret Muslim” and that she believes other “secret Muslims” are “taking over this country,” she found, to her dismay, that her own grandfather was a Muslim.

First of all, while the humor of this segment was based on the idea that Malkin must be a hypocrite with a Muslim relative (which even the show acknowledged was untrue), the setup was based on the premise as I described it above, which the narrator clearly presented as factual.

I’ve followed Malkin’s blog and columns for years now, and she has never said that President Obama is a Muslim, nor does she believe that Muslims, “secret” or otherwise, are somehow “taking over this country.” While she does report on multiethnic strife in many areas of the world, including ours, as a result of political correctness and lack of assimilation, nothing she has ever written comes close to the bizarre, mean caricature aired this morning on NPR.

But NPR’s mistake goes far beyond mere slander. Their joke targeted the family of a specific conservative at a time when that specific conservative’s family is suffering a tragedy. Quite a coincidence. It’s been two weeks since Malkin’s cousin Marizela Perez went missing, possibly the victim of a kidnapping. Malkin has used her media presence tirelessly since then to help find her young relative. Either NPR and Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me are not nearly as well-informed in their news awareness as they’d like us to believe, or they cruelly decided to go ahead with a particularly tasteless joke.

Ironically, just before this segment aired, they made fun of Gilbert Gottfried getting fired for his tasteless jokes about the Japanese earthquake and tsunami. Pot, meet kettle.

Remember: Your tax dollars are helping to pay for this garbage.

    Lies lies lies….
    Liberals lie about everything and they can be pretty damn nasty too.
    If anything good can come from Obama’s wave of destruction is that the left has been stripped bare of all their phony facades and exposed as the socialists and mean and rotten people they really are.

    Prayers are with MM and her family….

    I hope Hannity and all the conservative talk show hosts report on NPR’s vile attack on MM.

    Good riddance NPR.

    Ah. Nazi Palestinian Radio strikes again.

  • God Bless Michelle

    NPR should be put out of government dole. Never watch NPR and never will ..

  • rbosque

    Once again NPR is proving how biased they are. You’d think that since they are under a microscope they’d at least try to be neutral but it’s just not in their nature.

  • Opus#6@AmericanPerspective

    Praying for Michelle and Marezela.

    I know Michelle will blow it off as the typical left but, these are the folks that call the right “Mean Spirited”. Seems like we should only have feeling when speaking of the left. The right, like Ms Malkin are always a Target. Anyone that has a right of center blog, gets it everyday. Our viewpoints make grandma eat dog food, and we sure don’t like minorities as we want to transfer centralized government to local oversight. Only the KKK believe in states rights.. oh and how can we cut funding to NPR and throw Bert and Ernie (you know they are gay?) on the street. The Muppets.. yeah they are poor? Big Bird can’t pay his own bill (animal rights) Sesame street makes tons of money and would become just like all those folks on the welfare roles in mid 90s.. were did they go? They got jobs and ended up in much better situations then when on welfare.

    So those spirited in civility can attack Malkin.. she won’t say anything, but we will. The left should be ashamed of themselves! But that would require a sense of a Conscience.

    This is actually quite typical of the sort of subtle disinformation that NPR puts out. Lets review:

    ‘after Malkin had advertised her belief that President Obama is a “secret Muslim” and that she believes other “secret Muslims” are “taking over this country,” she found, to her dismay, that her own grandfather was a Muslim. ‘

    Then NPR would say something like “this is false, her grandfather isn’t a Muslim” which implies (without actually saying it) that the other stuff is true. But there is also more to it than that. This is a quiz show that is designed to trip up the audience. They know their listener base pretty well. They must have known that some significant portion of their listeners would have thought that to be true or thought that it could be true our they wouldn’t have included it.

    Can someone please give me one good reason why we are giving federal tax dollars to a partisan political activists?

    Michelle, still praying for Marizela’s safe return. Keep the faith!

    She called Obama’s trip to Indonesia as a Jihad Promonting Jaunt.

    That could not possibly have been a backhanded way of calling him a Muslim, could it?

  • Joe’s Garage

    Will someone put a foot up the collective asses of the Republican leadership and get them moving to defund this Liberal front of a news service?

    NPR has no human decency and needs to shutter their doors. They get $450,000,000 a year from the federal government for their “framed” stories. That’s all they are, made up stories. A Dem will never tell the truth. Never.

    Where are the Repubs to defund this stuff while most of team obama and his NWO bosses are all out of the country? Hurry.
    Oh that’s right they are all on spring break.
    ‘Must be nice to have a high paying part-time gig that allows you to not put in much work when you are on the job. ‘Cushy FREE lunches and dinners as well as parties and huge bennies. WOW. We peons are taxed to death by these high rollers. Only teachers and politicians get an automatic week off with pay in spring. Time for some of us to run for office and get some of those bennies. Heck there are still a bunch of Dems in state offices that need to get a pink slip.
    Who do we have running for the state offices for 2012?
