" “Scraping the Bottom of the Barrel” for Michelle Malkin"

A few months ago, Townhall contributor and right-wing pundit Michelle Malkin attacked Air America for raising money through pledge drives. Here’s what she wrote:

Al Franken’s liberal radio network, Air America, is now scraping the bottom of the barrel for investors. Having taxed the patience of deep-pocketed liberal sugar daddies, Air America execs have cooked up a new campaign to hit up their own listeners for cash donations.

You might be surprised to learn that pledge drives prop up Malkin’s work. Her columns are featured on the conservative website, which has started their fall pledge drive. The site urges its readers to “Contribute to Conservative Success: Use the form below to make your donation. All major credit cards accepted. Mail-in, Paypal options can be found at the bottom of this page.”


We’ll be waiting for Malkin’s upcoming attack on Townhall’s fundraising pitch.
