WND, NewsBusters Publish Ann Coulter's Joke About Killing Meghan McCain
Topic: NewsBusters

In her April 10 syndicated column, Ann Coulter wrote that MSNBC's Martin Bashir "suggested that Republican senators need to have a member of their families killed for them to support the Democrats' gun proposals," then added in parentheses, "Let's start with Meghan McCain!" Fox Nation posted Coulter's column then pulled it down, apparently thinking better of the implicit death threat.

The ConWeb, meanwhile, is not so reticent.

WorldNetDaily -- a longtime defender of letting Coulter be as nasty as she wants, despite the fact that WND chief Joseph Farah doesn't have the personal integrity to cancel her column despite revoking her invite to a WND-hosted conference because she doesn't hate gays as much as he does -- published Coulter's column intact.

NewsBusters also published Coulter's column intact, despite its history of avoiding controversy with its syndicated columnists --  it deliberately ignored Cal Thomas' insult of Rachel Maddow, and refused to publish the column in which he apologized.
