Right-wing author and pundit Michelle Malkin filled in for Bill O’Reilly tonight on The O’Reilly Factor. During a segment on a newly-proposed Airline Passengers Bill of Rights, Malkin said, “So you’re behind this Passengers’ Bill of Rights move. I have to tell you, in general, I’m skeptical of anything that has Bill of Rights tacked on to it.”
She wasn’t talking about the Bill of Rights, although with her writings sometime, you can detect that she doesn’t hold some of them in very high regard (Numbers 4-8, in particular), but she was talking about creating a Bill of rights for silly things like, well- airline passengers.
Airleine passengers are already protected by the criminal code, the big daddy Bill of Rights, and, most effectively, their wallets. If an airline hoses enough people, they will not attract customers and either fold or change their ways. That will have more of an impact than any silly “Airline Passengers Bill of Rights.”
