An honor bestowed
ORLANDO - The Heritage Foundation and Franklin Center for Government & Public Integrity presented the second annual Breitbart Award to Michelle Malkin, syndicated columnist and Fox News Channel contributor. Malkin was honored at tonightÃ¢ÂÂs Krieble Dinner at HeritageÃ¢ÂÂs Resource Bank. The award was presented by Heritage Foundation President Jim DeMint and Franklin Center President Jason Stverak.
The Breitbart Award honors those who advocate for the truth - a quality that Malkin exemplifies. As the founder of three successful conservative blogs -michellemalkin.com, Hot Air (now owned by Salem Communications), and Twitchy - has changed the way Americans consume media. Malkin dedicates her life to tackling the issues others often shy away from.
Erik Telford, vice president of strategic initiatives and communications at the Franklin Center, noted these traits:
Michelle Malkin is a champion in the pursuit of truth and accountability who has tirelessly worked to expose corruption and waste in government. She never hesitates to speak truth to power, debate issues that the mainstream media and political insiders would prefer to sweep under the rug, and empower citizens to join in her cause. Her work exemplifies Andrew BreitbartÃ¢ÂÂs fiery spirit and advances his legacy. " snip - more at the link.
Yes, this same Michelle Malkin:
"Dunkin Donuts has pulled a commercial featuring pitchwoman Rachael Ray wearing a scarf because Michelle Malkin and other conservative observers thought the scarf looked too much like a keffiyeh, what Malkin describes as "the traditional scarf of Arab men that has come to symbolize murderous Palestinian jihad."
