Friday Blog Fight: Malkin vs. Muller
Update: Eric Muller posts an apology and acknowledgment that he was mistaken about the photo. I'll just say this. Lawyers, myself included, generally are left-brain. We don't know when a photo is photo-shopped or real-- we don't have the artistic ability to discern between the two. I honestly believe Eric thought the photo was real. He is to be credited for apologizing once its falsity was called to his attention.
UPDATE, 3:00 p.m.: It appears that I was mistaken when I linked to the picture on flickr below, which I believed to be a picture of Michelle Malkin. I regret my error, and I apologize to Michelle Malkin for it. She has asked that I leave the post up -- indeed, she has reprinted it -- and so I will do as she wishes.
It's not even noon and we already have our Friday night blog fight that promises to go all weekend. It's Michelle Malkin vs. Eric Muller of Is that Legal , with a little Wonkette thrown in for good measure..
UNC Law Prof Eric Muller and Wonkette posted a picture he found on a Flickr site allegedly of Michelle Malkin on their websites. Eric wanted to show her hypocrisy for trashing a woman scantily dressed in her latest column.
Only the picture was photo-shopped by someone and is not Michelle. Now, Michelle is filing a complaint with UNC about Eric, saying it's gone too far. And she's asking for help identifying the flickr poster. Allah at Hot Air (another Malkin site) has more on the photo-shopping aspect.
