SUMMER SNEAK: COULTER CRIES 'SLANDER'; NEW BOOK DOCUMENTS DEEP MEDIA BIAS
After reading Ann Coulter's new book SLANDER: LIBERAL LIES ABOUT THE AMERICAN RIGHT, you'll never look at Katie Couric the same way again. Or Diane Sawyer. Or Lesley Stahl. Or PeterJenningsDanRatherTomBrokaw. Or Howard Kurtz, or any WashingtonPostNewYorkTimesLosAngelesTimes reporter.
With SLANDER, Coulter launches a one woman name-and-shame campaign against what she believes to be a deeply biased media world.
Never before has there been such an exhaustive index of big media blowups and blowouts published in book form. "And it's only Volume One!" Coulter threatened last week in Washington.
SLANDER, set for release by CROWN in late June, is destined to become the blueprint for talk show hosts and conservative patriots for centuries to come. And a text book for liberals on what to avoid.
[The book was rated #4,353 on AMAZON's best-selling hit parade on Tuesday morning.]
The final manuscript was obtained by the DRUDGE REPORT.
This reporter laughed, cried, shouted and screamed all by page 12.
Page after page, Coulter throws stink bombs with attitude back at the elite press -- stink bombs of their own making; meanwhile thanking the entire staff of the NEW YORK TIMES, without whom "this book would not have been possible."
["In the entire NEW YORK TIMES archives on LEXISNEXIS, there are 109 items using the phrase "far right wing," but only 18 items that use "far left wing," she begins.]
Coulter's summer collection -- footnoted and documented -- explores the happenings on TV, radio, Internet and print.
In the chapter "The Joy of Arguing with Liberals: You're Stupid!" Coulter Defends President Bush and others republicans who have been accused of intelligence gaps.
Coulter simply plays back embarrassing, rarely quoted goofs made by the loyal opposition.
Bill Clinton: "This is still the greatest country in the world, if we just will steel our wills and lose our minds."
Bill Clinton: "They've managed to keep their unemployment low although their overall unemployment is high."
U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer: "Those who survived the San Francisco earthquake said, 'Thank God I'm still alive.' But, of course, those who died, their lives will never be the same again."
Former Attorney General Janet Reno: "I will always wait until a jury has spoken before I anticipate what they will do."
Coulter devotes pages to a spicy comparison of accomplishments by female role models Phyllis Schlafly and Gloria Steinem:
"The party favors at the Schlafly luncheon was General Daniel Graham's book on Star Wars defense system, WE MUST DEFEND AMERICA," Coulter writes. "At the Democratic National Convention event attend by Steinem, the party favors were condoms."
Coulter spares no one with her Binaca Blast of information. She reserves top billing for NBC's TODAY SHOW, which, ironically, she is scheduled to appear on next month to launch SLANDER.
But if Coulter's thesis of "blacklisting" and "sin of omission" holds: Don't rush to set your VCRs just yet.
