MORE NEWSPAPERS DROP ANN COULTER'S COLUMN

Papers Nix Coulter’s Column

Posted on Mar 9, 2007


A number of newspapers around the country have dropped Ann Coulter’s syndicated column following her now-notorious homophobic zinger at a conference of conservatives last week. In addition to the three papers Editor & Publisher tallied Thursday, Media Matters on Friday named two more dailies that have had it with Coulter’s antics, and the website helpfully offers contact information for those that still carry her column.

UPDATE: Check out Friday’s San Francisco Chronicle report about further after-effects of Coulter’s comment

I heard somewhere that seven papers had dropped her--darn this poor memory, don't remember where I heard it.

From your article--
Quote:
Coulter has defended her use of the term as a "schoolyard taunt."


So Coulter is admitting she has the mind of a schoolyard bully. How big of her.

And Dan Savage from the article sounds as though he has never heard of the idea of respect for other people. Apparently the Rs constant whining about PC has gotten to him, so now we should appease the Rs by allowing disrespect to rule the day.

Sometimes we are our own worst enemy.
