But the supposedly compassionate liberals at NPR showed just how heartless they are to Michelle during this family nightmare.
Broadcasting from their government-funded sewer, NPR broadcast a comedy game show Wait, Wait....Don't Tell Me the other day. During a segment of the show, they claimed Michelle said Obama is a "secret Muslim" (she never has said that) and used that fallacy to joke that she found out that her grandfather was a closeted Muslim.
Michelle's response is here.
It's one thing when you want to portray all conservatives as ignorant, the Tea Party as RAAAAACIST, while claiming Jews own all the newspapers. It's another to attack the family of a prominent conservative while they're living through a nightmare no family should have to endure.
For a bit of irony on this supposed "comedy" NPR ought to take a lesson from a show they broadcast in June 2006.
"Political Discourse:" Linguist (read: liberal code word for "bullshit artist") Geoff Nunberg comments on the outrageous nature of political talk shows. He uses Ann Coulter's remarks describing Sept. 11 widows as witches to illustrate his point.
In other words: Civil Discourse for them, but not for us.
One more reason NPR should be defunded.
