Hannity Moderates Heated Clash Between Michelle Malkin And Sally Kohn
Mediaite ^ | 6//8/12 | Noah Rothman

Posted on 06/07/2012 9:44:37 PM PDT by Nachum

Sean Hannity hosted a discussion on his radio program on Thursday between Sally Kohn, a liberal columnist, and conservative pundit Michelle Malkin. A fight over a column by Kohn that took Malkin to task for “hypocrisy” quickly escalated into a series of personal attacks between the two pundits.

Kohn took on Malkin’s assertion that Mitt Romney’s campaign was being too nice in his campaign against President Barack Obama. She said that there was a measure of hypocrisy in her suggestion that Romney get more aggressive while at the same time admonishing the left for exhibiting a lack of civility.

“I think we can disagree without being disagreeable,” said Kohn. No sooner did she make this assertion than the conversation descended into a name calling and screaming between the two pundits.

“I think that Sally has made quite a nice name and career for herself casting herself as the voice of reasonableness and mistaking her own smugness as civility,” responded Malkin. “I really don’t need lectures from her or anybody else about having to get along with liberals and progressives.”

I’ve stopped watching Meghan K. at noon because she (Kohn) is a regular guest on her show. I cannot STAND her!

Oh no. That is NOT what this is about. This is an attack on Michelle Malkin and anyone like her by another operative JournOlister. Her job is "Kabuki Theater" to de-fang the legitmate reporting of the ongoing personal attacks used by the left and specifically the Democratic party.

Michelle is spot on here. We need to take notes and keep our powder dry.

Is Sally the liberal looking for a Conservative husband? A shame I’m already commited. Well, there’s some lucky single Freeper somewhere who could be tweeting her right now.

Nachum,

You comment is my point exactly. The fact that Rothman accuses Malkin of leveling ad hominem attacks is so ironic it’s comical. Kohn’s claiming that Michelle Malkin for her “hypocrisy”?!

LOL!

Boy, that Kohn is a real astute cookie. (saturated w/sarcasm)

Ditto - First time I saw ‘her,’ wasn’t sure what I was seeing.
Okay - give it a shot - but then, when listening, instant dislike.

Isn’t it true she has not appeared for ages with O’Reilly because he did not defend her over something or other?

Malkin was impressive. The Liberal is such a hypocrite. She attack Malkin for not holding the right side to civility while calling her names at the same time and REFUSES, REFUSES to hold anyone on the left to civility. Gawd was she clueless and sanctimonious

Malkin and Geraldo were both on the Factor set at the same time. I don’t even recall the specific subject (perhaps illegal immigration?), but during the crosstalk Geraldo called Michelle a whore and said that if he happened to see her on the sidewalk he would spit on her. BOR sat there like a post turtle and said nothing in defense of Michelle. .........She hasn’t guest hosted the Factor since then, but does frequently show up as a contributor on other FNC programs. .......BOR and FNC showed a lack of balls when they let that POS Geraldo get away with his racist tirade and then shunned Malkin for awhile.

I enjoy listening to the pudnuts that actually add intellectual content to the debate. Rush obviously, Michelle, Boortz, Levin, Coulter, Dana Loesch. I often don't agree with them on things, but I enjoy the enrichment of the discussion and challenging my own opinions. I am really turned off by guys like Hannity that just increase the volume in the echo chamber.

Sally Kohn is a deep-voiced heeshee. For a spouse she might be looking to hook up with a lipstick lezzie like Ann Heche, but even that one turned straight & bailed on Ellen Degenerates.

What is it about lesbians & liberalism? Yes, there is Tammy Bruce, but she is the exception which tests the rule.

Anyway, Michelle Malkin is attractive, smart, and a blessing to the conservative movement. She is such a pleasant contrast to strident dyke Sally that I hope they do point/counterpoint more often.

I think miz Kohn is a radical, feminist lesbian. Fox News is caving in and hiring more neo commies these days.

Maybe George Soros or his minions have an influence there. Afterall, how did Glen Beck get fired?

Hannity has a lot of critics here on FR and I know he’s not as “intellectual” as some of the others you mentioned, but he’s a strong, hard-working, straight-talking patriotic conservative American who is honest and plain-spoken and mostly always on the right side.

And one more thing about Hannity. He's very loyal to other conservatives. I remember when some punk-a$$ pundit tried to get him to criticize Rush and Hannity read him the riot act.

Hannity is a good guy and we're lucky to have him on our side.

Yup...as someone else posted, she’s on Meg Kelly’s show a lot.
The first time I saw her, I thought of Maddcow, looked her up on Google and all presumptions abt her libness, lesbo-ness and “partnership” we’re confirmed.
Jeez, Laz, these days, it’s so hard to figure out if it is “hit able” or not...
Cripes!

I totally agree. I heard this live yesterday, and Michelle sliced and diced Cohn with surgical precision, no name-calling or yelling needed. Michelle is one of our brightest pundits.

In the background you can hear Kohn giggling, but by the end Kohn was reduced to a stuttering, “um er um y’know”-gibbering rhesus monkey at several times.
