Will Newsmax Note Rebuttal to Coulter?
Topic: Newsmax

A Jan. 7 Newsmax article by Phil Brennan reported on an analysis by "far left attack dog Media Matters for America" (disclosure: my employer) detailing numerous false and misleading statements in Ann Coulter's new book, "Guilty," claiming that the article "unmasks some of the left’s sleaziest tactics." (Tellingly, Brennan offerds no link to the Media Matters article so his readers can judge for themselves.) Brennan then gives Coulter an opportunity to respond to selected claims Media Matters makes about "her meticulously researched book." 

Media Matters has now rebutted Coulter's claims, pointing out that her response compounds the original documented falsehoods she made.

So, the question now is: Does Brennan have enough journalistic integrity to inform his readers about this rebuttal? Or is he so invested in his obvious hatred for Media Matters -- he also quotes "widely respected pollster Frank Luntz" calling it "one of the most destructive organizations associated with American politics today," failing to note that Luntz is a conservative and the statement appears to be a petty reaction to Media Matters' coverage of Luntz -- that he will hide the truth from his readers?

We somehow suspect it's the latter.
