I Want to Hype You Ann
The scolds at David Brock's Media Matters think MSNBC was in the wrong for - like us - hyping Ann Coulter's insane "Bill Clinton: Meat eater" interview.
Despite her vitriolic attacks on the 9-11 widows, highlighted by NBC's Today host Matt Lauer, Coulter's appearances on the July 26 editions of The Big Idea and Hardball will mark at least the sixth and seventh times NBC, or one of its cable news channels, has hosted Coulter since the publication of her book, Godless: The Church of Liberalism.Yeah, but it's the first time she's called Bill Clinton gay.
C'mon, guys. Take Soros' money; don't borrow his sense of humor.
