Noel Sheppard Slobbers All Over Ann Coulter
Topic: NewsBusters

Reading or listening (37 minutes!) to Noel Sheppard's fawning, slobbering interview of Ann Coulter, you feel compelled to take frequent breaks to wipe the drool off your computer screen.

Introducing the interview in a NewsBusters post, Sheppard calls Coulter a "treasured friend of the Media Research Center's [sic] and NewsBusters favorite." Sheppard begins the interview proper by saying, "I am pleased to be talking today with best-selling author Ann Coulter whose book 'Demonic: How the Liberal Mob Is Endangering America' has taken the country by storm just of course as all of her books do. Welcome, Ann."

A book that had a weaker debut than many of her previous book and is currently ranked at No. 972 at Amazon is hardly "taking the country by storm," Noel.

Despite Sheppard's frequent admonitions of media figures who conduct interviews in which they avoid asking certain touchy questions (well, more to the point, questions Sheppard wants asked), he was too busy slobbering over Coulter to contront her with certain inconveniently controversial statements she has made. For instance, despite spending a good portion of his fawning conversation talking about Herman Cain, Sheppard failed to note how Coulter's statement that "Liberals are terrified ... of strong, conservative, black men" flies in the face of the race-baiting she accuses liberals of engaging in, not to mention becoming overtaken by events when Cain's campaign accused Rick Perry's campaign of shopping the sexual-harassment story to the media.

Needless to say, Sheppard has denounced the very behavior he engaged in with Coulter. In an Oct. 24 post, he groused, "Is it possible for the press to gush and fawn over Barack Obama during this upcoming presidential campaign as much as they did in 2008?" And the very same day his interview was posted, Sheppard mocked some in the media for being a "disgraceful suck-up" to Obama.

Well, if anyone knows about being a disgraceful suck-up, it's Sheppard.

We were going to ask if Sheppard could find it within himself to live up to his own standards, but we were a bit too distracted by the slurping sounds during the Coulter interview.
