WWR Article Summary (tl;dr) Now that her children are older, Conservative pundit Michelle Malkin is taking on TV again with “Michelle Malkin Investigates,” a documentary-style show that draws from her books and her other reporting for all 13 episodes of the first season.

Michelle Malkin’s career was on a rocket ship but her soul was mired in the swamp before she made the move to Colorado Springs eight years ago.

“When I left we were living in the Baltimore area,” she said backstage Wednesday night at the Fox Aurora Theater Center before premiering her digital Conservative TV show, “Michelle Malkin Investigates.”

“I’d take the train up and be in New York a couple of days. I would take the train back and see my kids for a day, then I’d rush down to D.C., and that’s how it was. And my kids were really little then.”

And her kids were there at the pancake restaurant when a heckler would go off about something she said on Fox News. And there were always the worries about threats and violence under the politically drenched D.C. cloud.

In 2007, she was a regular face on Fox News and guest-hosting such top shows “The O’Reilly Factor” and “Hannity” and had three books to her credit.

Unlike other women who have complained about sexual harassment that led to the ouster last summer of Fox News chief Roger Ailes, Malkin says she saw none of that.

“Maybe I wasn’t his type,” she said, then laughing.

That same year, in 2008, a rap song advocated killing Malkin and fellow Fox newscaster Bill O’Reilly.

For sure, Malkin has written and said plenty to invite passion and criticism. She is a hardliner on immigration. She was years ahead of Donald Trump with her 2002 book “Invasion: How America Still Welcomes Terrorists, Criminals, and Other Foreign Menaces.”
