The Unhinged and Malkin
However, I'll defend her on an ugly issue that came up today. The Student Against War at UC Santa Cruz sent out a press release bragging about shutting military recruiters out of a third straight job fair at UCSC. In the header, they included the names, phone numbers, and e-mails of their "ad hoc press team". Here's a link to the press release, that is still up on another website.
Evidently, being students who protest instead of going to their journalism classes, they didn't realize that "For Immediate Release" usually means everything below that line is for publication. Malkin published them (linked here), and now they aren't happy, in fact she's gotten some interesting and disturbing e-mails from the unhinged folks on the left.
There are a bunch of folks, including Dan at Riehl World View, who have said she should have left the contact info out. I don't think she was wrong, though she probably could have gotten away with a little less of the info in her post.
At the same time since the post is still up on a lot of lefty sites, I don't think the students were that concerned about the info getting out, until it got to the right side of the political spectrum and they had to deal with disagreement. Welcome to the world of free speech, where sometimes folks disagree with you.
