Michelle Malkin began her career in newspaper
journalism with the Los Angeles Daily News,
where she worked as an editorial writer and
weekly columnist from 1992-94. In 1995, she
was named Warren Brookes Fellow at the Competitive
Enterprise Institute in Washington, D.C. In
1996, she joined the editorial board of the
Seattle Times, where she penned editorials and
weekly columns for three and a half years.
Today, her syndicated column appears in over
100 papers nationwide. Malkin's work has been
cited in The New York Times, The Washington
Post, USA Today, Reader's Digest and U.S. News
and World Report. Her freelance work has appeared
in The Wall Street Journal, Weekly Standard
and Reason magazine. She has appeared on "The
O'Reilly Factor," "Hannity and Colmes,"
"The McLaughlin Group" and "20/20,"
and is currently a Fox News commentator.
Her ground-breaking research and reporting
led to her first book, "Invasion: How America
Still Welcomes Terrorists, Criminals, and Other
Foreign Menaces to Our Shores" (Regnery
2002), in which she argues "immigration
must be treated as a national-security issue."
The book debuted on The New York Times nonfiction
best-seller list at No. 14 (week of Nov. 17,
2002). Her second book, "In Defense of
Internment: The Case for 'Racial Profiling'
in World War II and the War on Terror"
(Regnery 2004), offers a defense of the most
reviled wartime policies in our history.
Malkin, the daughter of Filipino immigrants,
was born in Philadelphia and raised in southern
New Jersey. She worked as a press inserter,
tax preparation aide and network news librarian;
she is also a lapsed classical pianist. Malkin's
hobbies include crocheting and pier fishing
with her dad.
A graduate of Oberlin College in Oberlin, Ohio,
Malkin currently lives with her husband and
daughter in Maryland.
