Has Ann Coulter hit her tipping point?

Last week, we pointed out the hypocrisy with regard to how Ann Coulter was treated as opposed to Bill Maher. You can read that piece here. It’s appears, after a week, that CBS big wig Steve Freidman agrees with us. Albeit in an Uber-liberal qualified way.

Has Ann Coulter hit her tipping point? – Yahoo! News

NEW YORK – Ann Coulter has been a reliable name for years among people who plan television news shows — an attractive, articulate blonde conservative who’s made a living lobbing verbal bombs.

Following her use of a gay slur about Democratic presidential candidate

John Edwards

this month during remarks to the Conservative Political Action Conference, some on TV are wondering whether her shelf life is expiring.

Many were angered by her use of the “f-word”. Coulter later said she considered it a “schoolyard taunt.” She said it was a joke about “Grey’s Anatomy” actor Isaiah Washington saying he would seek counseling after using the word to refer to a fellow actor.

At least four daily newspapers have dropped Coulter as a columnist, citing her comment about Edwards.

Head-turning remarks are hardly anything new for the author of “Godless: The Church of Liberalism” and “How to Talk to a Liberal (If You Must).” In “Godless” last year, she wrote of World Trade Center widows: “I’ve never seen people enjoying their husbands’ deaths so much.”

“It’s a world of `are you talking about me? are you talking about me?'” said Steve Friedman, executive producer of “The Early Show” on CBS. “And eventually you have to get more and more outrageous to be talked about. One day you cross the line and become persona non grata. I think she’s getting close. I think Bill Maher is getting close.”

  1. Best line in the article…

    Said Tom Rosenstiel, director of the Project for Excellence in Journalism: “You do wonder whether she’s destined for `Dancing With the Stars’ at some point.”

  2. I want her under my Christmas tree!

  3. I just want to say thank you to Ann for her words. The more she speaks the more voters will be driven to the Democrats. Please someone shut her up before she does any more damage to the Republican party.
