At NewsBusters, Ann Coulter's Insults = Media Criticism
Topic: NewsBusters

Apparently, if someone insults a liberal, that qualifies as "media criticism" as far as the Media Research Center is concerned, as we've already seen.

Noel Sheppard got such a kick out of Ann Coulter's hostile appearance on HBO's "Real Time With Bill Maher" that he got two NewsBusters clips out of it:

First, Sheppard resorts to his usual bag of lame headline cliches: "Ann Coulter Smacks Down Bill Maher: 'I Only Talk To Rubes Right Here.'" Sheppard enjoyed the insult so much -- Brava, Ann! Brava!" -- that he couldn't even get the Coulter quote right; she actually sad, "I do not talk to rubes except right here."

Sheppard followed that one up with his adamant approval of Coulter's insult of someone who not only wasn't even on the show but is a private citizen, declaring that guest Chris Hayes' mother is 'a drain on society" because she works for the government. The vast majority of people would consider such an attack on a private citizen to be unwarranted and excessively mean -- especially since Coulter can't possibly know Hayes' mom and is in no position to judge her -- but Sheppard loves it anyway, concluding by shorting, "Game, set match."

So the MRC has gone from mere hostility to expression of liberal views to cheering on insults of anyone who is not conservative. Of course, if it wasn't for this sort of thing, the MRC would have no "media criticism" at all.
