[Note This is a Cross Post from Blackpolitical Thought]Conservative blogger and Fox News contributor Michelle Malkin bit off a little more than she could chew or she really thought that she could take a low blow and get away with it while she was on Fox News yesterday. According to Huffington Post, as if implicating Michelle Obama as one half of a “terrorist fist jab” wasn’t enough, Fox News has gone on to label Michelle Obama “Obama’s baby mama.” Malkin appeared on Fox during a segment discussing conservative attacks against Michelle Obama, the wife of presumptive Democratic nominee Barack Obama, the network described the former as “Obama’s baby mama.” This description was displayed on the screen several times during the segment with Megyn Kelly and Michelle Malkin.
Or, I guess maybe Fox News was more to blame for this than she was, since she said that she did not write the caption and she was not aware of it when it ran (the Baltimore studio doesn’t have a monitor). Michelle Malkin stated on her website that she didn’t know if the caption writer was making a lame attempt to be hip, clueless about the original etymology of the phrase, or both.
So, I went to to see if she responded to the drama. You see, Michelle Malkin is the same person who raised a stink recently about a scarf Rachael Ray wore in a Dunkin Donuts online commercial. She and a lot of conservatives said that the scarf reminded people of terrorism. Go figure. So, now she has her sights on Barack Obama’s wife. Okay, I admit, Michelle Obama is fair game in terms of any statements she makes on policy issue or the campaign. So what if she said that Barack Obama is her “baby’s daddy?” Do they now have to label her “Obama’s baby mama?” Isn’t that just being used as a stereotypical ploy by Fox News?
