Michelle Malkin went to go bother the Frost family today.
Think Progress reports:
Right wing bloggers have been harassing the Frosts, calling their home numerous times to get information about their private lives.
Malkin screeches something about "faux outraged leftists." I hasten to assure her that, no, this is the genuine article.
Her defense for her behavior, and for that of Greater Wingnuttia:
Asking questions and subjecting political anecdotes to scrutiny are what journalists should be doing.
But all this shit started with obviously stupid and dishonest "questions" that weren't questions at all, but vile innuendo. The reason actual journalists didn't ask these "questions" is that there was never any reason to ask them except to engage in this innuendo. "Mr. & Ms. Frost, you appear to be spending $40,000 a year on your $45,000 income in order to send your kids to a swanky private school. Could you explain to our readers how you are perpetrating tax fraud and lying to the government to qualify for financial benefits?" A reporter who asked a "question" like that ought to expect a punch in the snout, frankly.
Nothing in this family's story is remotely implausible, and anyone who pretends otherwise is making up crap because they don't like a healthcare program that benefits the middle class. Period.
A word for all the wingnut "Citizen Journalists": you're no such thing. You're just crazy assholes.
