Since NewsReal Blog is a media analysis blog, bear with me as I point out (again) what the media got wrong about Ann Coulter’s history-making trip to Canada. (And yes, I mean that. As I’ve said from the start, her visit has cast into high relief a debate that until now has mostly existed on [...]
Anti-Coulter protest outside University of Ottawa
The Grope & Flail Globe & Mail considers itself Canada’s New York Times (which they still think is a good thing for some reason). However, to mangle Pauline Kael’s line about Nixon voters, nobody I know actually reads it.
Today someone emailed me a new column about Ann Coulter’s visit to [...]
This is Ann Coulter’s last day in Canada, and I’ll bet she’s all busted up about that.

Often, it’s simply a matter of the media saying so as if they’re vetted, well-established conclusions, despite skipping the messy “vetting” and “establishing” parts.
Writing for Right Wing News, conservative blogger Warner Todd Huston notes that Seattle radio host Brooke Fox recently said on Twitter that she’d like to punch out Ann Coulter and a host of others who dare disagree with her (political) views:
On her Twitter feed on February 17, Miss Fox asked the question “Fill in the [...]
Ron Paul’s straw poll “victory” at last week’s Conservative Political Action Conference was surprising. It leads one to believe conservatives retain the ability to snap defeat from the jaws of victory this coming Fall. Ann Coulter reflects the opinion of many conservatives when she claims agreement with Ron Paul on almost [...]
