Remember Pamela Geller, whose “Muhammad Cartoon Contest” in Garland, Texas, earlier this month resulted in the deaths of two men who tried to attack the event?

MSNBC terrorism expert Evan Kohlmann insisted on tonight's Hardball program that Pam Geller was dangerously close to committing "hate crimes" with her "draw Muhammad" events.

WashPost Blames Target: 'Almost Gleeful' Geller 'Offers No Apology'

May 6th, 2015 10:09 AM
The headline at Sandhya Somashekhar's Washington Post column on Pamela Geller, whose Muhammad Art Exhibit and Cartoon Contest was the target of a failed terrorist attack, acts as if that attack is her fault: "Event organizer offers no apology after thwarted attack in Texas." Somashekhar's work reeks of contempt for Geller and her efforts, even going beyond the media malfeasance cited in the…

The Federalist's David Harsanyi pointed out the New York Times's clear double standard when it comes to advertising in a Thursday post on Twitter.

Robert Spencer Skewers AP's Coverage of UK's Ban of Spencer-Pamela Gel

June 27th, 2013 4:05 PM
Over at Jihad Watch, Robert Spencer has posted what he says is the substance of his entire email exchange with James Brooks of the Associated Press in the wire service's coverage of the UK Home Office's decision to ban Spencer and fellow Stop the Islamization of America leader Pamela Geller, so we can compare what actually transpired to what was published.

Pamela Geller announced at her Atlas Shrugs blog Wednesday morning that "the British government has banned us (herself and fellow Stop Islamization of America activist Robert Spencer) from entering the country ...

April 22nd, 2013 4:00 AM
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel is famous for saying: “You never want a good crisis to go to waste.” Apparently, that's also the motto of the liberal Southern Poverty Law Center's Marilyn Elias, who last week wrote an article amid the hunt for the Boston marathon bombing suspects which urged both caution against jumping to conclusions that Muslims might have perpetrated it but also attempted to…

NYT Movie Critic A.O. Scott Defends Criminal Vandalism of 'Savage' Sub

October 1st, 2012 2:03 PM
As shown on Times Watch this morning, New York Times media reporter David Carr may pooh-pooh the idea of liberal bias. But he's a stronger supporter of the First Amendment than some of his Times colleagues, like movie critic A.O. Scott, who ludicrously defended a left-wing journalist's vandalism of the subway poster as "free expression" and even "democracy." In "The Sweet Spot," a weekly…
