Conservative commentator Richard Grenell was named one of Time magazine’s 140 Best Twitter Feeds of 2014.

Time said the Palm Springs resident is “seemingly always on the hunt for what he sees as liberal media bias or Democrats’ weak-kneed foreign policy.”

“If you want to know which journalist is angering conservatives at any give moment, follow Grenell,” the magazine noted.

In a statement, Grenell said Twitter allows him to “engage directly with consumers.”

“There is no better way to beat biased reporting than to engage an audience without the media’s filter,” he added.

Grenell’s Twitter feed actually came under intense scrutiny during the 2012 presidential campaign, when he was serving as national security spokesman for Mitt Romney.

Critics at the time said he had scrubbed about 800 tweets from his account after questions were raised about tweets he made about prominent women such as MSNBC host Rachel Maddow, Callista Gingrich and now first lady Michelle Obama.

But Grenell told The Desert Sun that isn’t the case.

“The liberal left has always tried to push the false narrative that my criticism of both men and women was just of women and that it was later scrubbed,” he said in an email Tuesday. “It’s a game the left plays to scare off criticism of their failed policies by claiming conservatives are sexist, racist or homophobic.”
