Tweet like a girl: Alan Colmes lies about Twitchy Gosnell coverage; Michelle Malkin fact-checks into submission; Update: Colmes is still unhappy with us

Unbelievable. Alan Colmes took to Fox News’ “Happening Now” to spread outright lies today.

We know: Shockah! But, let’s go to the video tape so you can see the shameless extent of his lies:

He is also pushing similar lies at his website (plus throwing in some despicable “arguments’ like this: “If anti-abortion legislators had given women more options, Gosnell wouldn’t have done as much business”):

colmes-site-gosnell-lies

Mr. Colmes, Twitchy has five pages of Gosnell coverage since our launch in March 2012.  Five. Twitchy founder Michelle Malkin has also covered Kermit Gosnell extensively, since the horrific case first came to light.

Are numbers as hard as truth for you?

Twitchy founder Michelle Malkin provides him with a Teachable Moment about truth.

Bingo.

Colmes has nothing to say except more lies, as usual.

Well, lies and passing the blame onto that great arbiter of everything … Salon.

But first, he snarks at Chuck Woolery for speaking truth.

“Salon did it,” says Alan Colmes as he cowers behind its skirt.

Zing!

Alan, had you fact-checked at all, you’d know we already shredded those lies. You know, in our extensive Gosnell coverage.

Sigh. Truth doesn’t matter to you now, does it? Repeat a lie often enough and it becomes truth, right?

Sorry, buddy. That doesn’t work anymore. That’s Alan’s problem, isn’t it? Scared much? Tweet like a girl is the new fight like a girl. The Left’s lies and false narratives are now destroyed in real time.

Colmes walked back after being confronted with the truth.

Still Salon’s fault, too! Then he had to whine some more. Truth hurts, you see.

Waaah. And a faux-pology.

Please. Attacking someone’s integrity isn’t attacking them personally? To be fair, perhaps he doesn’t understand that, being that he lacks integrity of his own.

Now, put your big boy pants on, stop hiding behind Salon’s skirt and make an on-air apology for your blatant and egregious lies.

Welcome to the power of Twitter, Mr. Colmes

Update:

Colmes is still unhappy. We included his retraction tweet in this post (see above). We’re not really sure what else he wants us to do.

  • Jim Denney

    Put Jehmu Greene on Fox again, she’ll smack down that bow tie wearin’ white … I mean dress wearin’ little brown woman. Dam* racists.

  • DanStlMo

    Correction ON AIR or it didn’t happen.

    • Canadian in USA

      It’ll never happen. Remember how they smeared Rush Limbaugh as a racist for supposed “sayings” that were proven that he never said them. Then a CNN anchor tweeted his apology saying “my bad” (actual quote) – never apologized on air, even after the damage that was done. They’ll never admit they’re wrong on the air, as long as the LIVs hear what these people want them to hear; truth be damned.

      • CatHerder

        “The jury will disregard the previous statement”. Too late, they already heard it. Same old same old, you can’t apologize anywhere but the scene of the crime.

      • trixiewoobeans

        Oh, take a look at him, he’s got lukewarm milk flowing thru his veins, he’s not man enough to apologize on air. That’s a fate worse than death to a Lib.

  • neoface

    Michelle you are insulting girls, Colmes just tweet like Obama’s useful idiot!!

    • RblDiver

      (Psst, “Tweet like a girl” is complimenting Michelle, not insulting Colmes, sort of like when Twitchy refers to her as “just a blogger” which was originally meant to insult but has been used with pride)

      • RblDiver

        (Clarification – “originally meant to insult” by idiot leftists, not Twitchy doing the insulting)

  • Clayton Grant

    I have NEVER heard anything truthful from Alan Colmes. When he was dumped from Hannity & Colmes, he doubled down and ran even further to the left.

  • Dirtt

    Michelle Malkin further galvanizes her status as one of the most important USA AMERICANS of our generation. Drudge is Drudge. The concept of Twitchy shall render similar comparisons when the dust settles from the demise of The Progressive Media Complex.

    The sweet sweet smell of Malkin’s Twitchy is the deodorizer to the stench of Progressive Ideology.

    • $4356589

      Really? The moronic robotic anchor baby who isn’t capable of any more than stringing together incendiary conservatard buzzwords (much less speaking without long pauses and “ums”) is one of the most important “USA AMERICANS”? Wow. Also funny how “progressive ideology” stinks…because conservative Christians would rather cling to an ideology that subjugates women, people of color, LGBTs, the poor, the elderly, etc. Conservatives don’t like the ideas of freedom and equality…even though it’s what this beloved country was supposedly built on.

      • dabhidh

        Oh, look, a sexist, racist, anti-Christian lefty trolling in the name of compassion. Amazing how hollow it all sounds.

        • trixiewoobeans

          Definitely deserves a CRD (Closet Racist-of-the-Day award), plus Closet Misogynist and Religious Bigot.

      • SK8FREE_4EVER

        @ZekeTX: Seems like your ad hom attack generator is stuck on stupid. “The moronic robotic anchor baby who isn’t capable of any more than stringing together incendiary conservatard buzzwords” ZekeTX is demonstrating *Typical* levels of tolerance and compassion found in liberal progressives. smh

        • $4356589

          It’s cute when conservatards can only combat truth by calling it “stupid.”

          • grais

            You spewed a lot of silly, old leftist opinions, not “truth.”
            You’ve strayed pretty far from the topic of this twitchy article. (Alan Colmes Is A Liar)
            Any particular reason?

          • lainer51

            i don’t call it stupid, I call it lying…big difference. Stupid can’t be fixed, lying can, but it is part of the libs’ DNA, so it will never go away.

          • Christian Orpinell

            When you blurt a label such as, “conservatards” you’re essentially stating out-loud that you’re getting personally hurt by your inability to realize how you’re a liberal trolling in the name of compassion.

            Liberalism, and compassion are words that do not complement one another.

            It’s cute when blatantly, and willfully, ignorant bigots call their ill-informed opinions “truth”.

          • http://extremesplash.wordpress.com/ Ben Bollman

            Yes, you claiming that conservatism subjugates women and people of color while doing it to a woman of color yourself in the very same post is a very special kind of stupid we call ‘liberal’.

          • http://whatandever.blogspot.com/ Osumashi Kinyobe

            Thank you.

          • http://extremesplash.wordpress.com/ Ben Bollman

            you’re welcome, I get tired of the blatant hypocrisy

          • EastValleyConservative

            As grais correctly stated, you used an article about Alan Colmes lying to attack Michelle Malkin in the way that you claim those on the right attack minorities. You showed exactly who you are–the person you claim that those you attack are. It’s hilarious.

          • DrSamHerman

            It’s so cute when leftists try generating new words and fail miserably.

      • http://www.GONINERS.com/ Kristine

        Umm, Zeke, I have to open your mind here. Not ALL “Conservatives” are Christians, nor do we have any dislike of freedom and equality. Many of us support gay marriage AND are agnostic, as well as eschew all of your other absurd bigotry.

        So before spouting your incredibly ignorant, and clearly trolling, words, try using what little gray matter you might have.

      • EastValleyConservative

        Wow. A leftist who mutters and stutters the usual lies-talking points of the left. Prove your case or get over it. You can’t. Oddly enough, in your predictable “you’re all racists and homophobic!” rant was prefaced with a racial slur. How cool is that? You leftists always reveal yourselves because your spewing anger gets the best of you.

      • http://whatandever.blogspot.com/ Osumashi Kinyobe

        Look- if you don’t want to talk about Gosnell or how Michelle Malkin has been covering this story for two years, fine. Just don’t talk about it. But whatever you do, stop waving about the tired, old canards of conservative hatred of women, different races, fluffy kittens or whatever deflection you think can be inserted into debates like this. It makes you look petulant, petty and stupid.

      • sacha

        You must be Alan Colmes boyfriend, I mean body man. You are Alan’s “Reggie Love.”

      • Chris Cherry

        Subjugate…….seek the meaning, before you spout the rhetoric…ignoramus.

        • Chris Cherry

          Is your Daddy shutting your Mommy down? No here is trying to stifle speech except you……Is society rejecting your views, maybe so ….but subjugation is just incendiary rhetoric.

      • DrSamHerman

        Looking in the mirror and talking to yourself again there, Zero? You must be from the Austin, the City of Ignorance.

  • Joe W.

    I dislike Alan Colmes almost as much as I abhor Barack Obama. I said “almost”…..

  • BadGirloftheNorth

    Huge Atta-Girl to you, Twitchy Michelle :) You are the one who broke the story, at least for me, at its onset. Thanks for keeping your ear to the ground, even when you are going to pick up a lot of dirt :) like this. Funny how reporters use to go after this type of super hard hitting story. Now the lame stream runs, well, like little scared gurls…..

  • Guest

    Colmes is an unashamed left wing fanatic,
    with the appearance of an effeminate reptile.

  • Robert Johnson

    The left should be saying that if people realized that life was sacred, abortion mills like Gosnell’s wouldn’t exist.

  • sueanneh

    How many more *options* do the libs need to kill babies??

  • Jim

    So a liberal reporter depends entirely on other members of the liberal media for his facts, and then is shocked when those facts are wrong? Ah, the echo chamber strikes again.

  • Annieg

    Meanwhile in a “front” alley abortion clinic another scared woman is placing her female health in the hands of a “Doctor” Gosnell because she believes that is her only choice…maybe it is, once….

  • nc

    Silly libbies, when will they learn not to mess with our Warrior Princess?

    Thank you, Michelle!

  • http://powip.com vermontaigne

    Yeah, I tried notifying @twitchyteam of this yesterday. He got his BS from Alex Seitz-Wald at Salon, who specifically faulted Twitchy for not covering this when the story broke in 2011, before Twitchy existed: http://www.salon.com/2013/04/12/conservatives_should_look_inward_on_gosnell_blackout/

    I wrote about it yesterday here,http://www.conservativecommune.com/2013/04/the-lefts-phony-estoppal-argument-regarding-gosnell/, but there’s new BS along the same lines today: http://www.conservativecommune.com/2013/04/wapo-covers-gosnell-story-with-false-coverage-of-the-coverage/

  • MarcusFenix

    I absolutely adore MM, esp when she blows up people for being stupid. God Bless her.

  • Kenneth Riggs

    Alan would you like me to hold your purse for you while you get tough?

  • $4356589

    Hahaha! Look how much energy Michelle Munchkin is expending on this. If anyone got under anyone’s skin, I’d sal Colmes got under hers. Munchkin sure loves to throw around her robotic vitriol, but she CANNOT take criticism. Thin-skinned mannequin masquerading as a “journalist.”

      Got it. Thanks for the clarification.

    • arrow2010

      Wrong, it’s important to take down a prominent member of the MSM. It’s worth expending energy on.

      • Ronin

        I’d say it’s worth it to castigate any liar and shame ’em in public.

    • Allan Hamilton

      Seems to have gotten under yours too tweke! When’s your next date with the effeminate reptile Colms?

    • John Thomas “Jack” Ward III

      Telling (or spreading) the REAL TRUTH is NOT VITRIOL!That is what Michelle is trying to do! And Colmes was LYING about Twitchy coverage of Gosnell’s Trial! It’s been on the home page (in one story or another) for at least two weeks straight!! And that’s what I want-THE TRUTH, NOT WHAT THE MEDIA WANTS ME TO SEE! Jawamax 8<{D}

    • lainer51

      what is a sal?
      BTW – Colmes could never get close enough to M.M. to “get under her skin”, although I am sure he would like to, considering he’s a fugly.

    Alan Colmes …. you can’t handle the truth!
    Go Michelle!!!! :)))

  • Karl Winrich

    Most journalists now days don’t even follow their rules, and most of them routinely break probably the most important rule: Be factual.

  • GloriaUnread

    Ugh.. Alan used the old “Sorry if you took it that way” non-apology apology.

  • forgetyoutooo

    Colmes knew full well that any coverage by the liberal media on the murderer Gosnell trial was from 2011.

  • Ronin

    HAHAHAHAH. O.M.G. I love Ms. Malkin. What an awesome woman. If only this wasn’t such a tragic subject. Murdering newborns. Not aborting late trimester, not aborting mid trimester, not aborting for mothers health.
    Murdering newborns.
    Even pro-choice people should be jumping up and down. I mean, Newtown was about the kids, right?
    Why do you all seem so darn quiet?

  • peteee363

    funny how the libs never seem to go to the source for the “facts” they want to quote. colmes did not go to michelle for facts, he went to salon. just like the media refer to media matters instead of going to rush directly. they are real lazy on the left!

  • John Thomas “Jack” Ward III

    And how much coverage has Mr. Colmes’ Lame MSM cronies given this case (Before the Twitter/Twitchy uproar)? Ride ’em, Shelley! Jawamax 8<{D}

    Does Colmes site still have the debt clock down? I noticed it was up during the Bush years but not when Obama was in office.

    O M G….I am speechless…. I’ve been following this by Twitchy and Michelle and THAT’S how I know about this atrocity….. Get a life Colmes

  • Frank Smiles

    Welcome to Twitchy/Twitter/INFORMED voters, folks! We need to make this work for the nation when the midterms are here next year. They say if you win big enough, the fraudsters can’t pull it off at the polls. They cheated Romney, and all of us as well. Let’s not let it happen again. We need to 1. Believe, 2. Participate, and 3. Act. Twitchy and Twitter can be the antidote to the lies the MSM tells for their handlers.

  • lainer51

    Alan Colmes is so irrelevant, it’s hard to get upset; but that doesn’t excuse him for outright lying AGAIN!. He does it so often, it’s becoming tedious.

    I watched the segment and couldn’t believe he was allowed to get away with his premise in the first place.. other places didn’t cover it so that’s why the networks didn’t.. really, is that how networks make their news coverage decisions? Pure deflection.

  • vino veritas

    Another lie from Colmes, ehh.. so whats new! The only thing new is that he has now been caught publicly in his lies. Pretty stupid of him to even try lying about Michelle Malkin, of all people, while on Fox News, of all places! This guy has been at it since I first saw him on Fox. As usual, he will get away with unapologetically and arrogantly denying any responsibility then having the hypocritical temerity to accuse her of engaging in personal attacks after he does merely because she called him out without genuflecting at his feet with the ‘appropriate’ gentle snowflake treatment he is usually given. This is because he is never held responsible by Fox News for anything he says or does while on their network. That is the way so many liberals at Fox are treated while conservatives are routinely short changed on time when responding to liberal talking points and are often interrupted by moderators when giving those responses. Basically, Fox gives libs more deference and treats them better than anywhere else in the MSM, except maybe at NBC. It would be nice if there was an on air retraction of his lies by either the host or, preferably and justifiably, by Colmes himself but she really shouldn’t hold her breath for that one. The suits at Fox will probably just ignore it, go back to business as usual and book him again along with the rest of their libelous & bile spewing liberal guests.

  • Mark81150

    Colmes… sigh,.. you really need to work on your people skills. Yes, when you name someone and declare they are guilty of something they didn’t do, they tend to take it personally..

    and a lie is telling a falsehood.. not doing your own research is no excuse.
