Another Malkin lie exposed

One of the best things about being a part of the progressive media is that if you don’t have time to personally slap down a lying piece of right-wing garbage, one of your talented colleagues will pick up the ball.

Many thanks to my friends Taylor Marsh and Barbara O'Brien for taking on Michelle Malkin, who crawled out from under her rock long enough to lie about the audience's reaction to a portion of Hillary Clinton's speech yesterday at the Take Back America conference.

According to cancer-on-journalism Malkin, she was posting video of "… Hillary getting booed as she asks progressives to support the troops."

Sounds bad, right? The only problem is, it didn’t happen.
