In a curious chain of events, NBC cancelled a segment with conservative author Ann Coulter on the release of her new book, Guilty, because they don’t like what she has to say. Not just cancelled the segment, but may have banned her from NBC forever. Joe Wilson (or pick your liberal author) is just fine though.
From the Drudge Report . . .
The nation’s top selling conservative author has been banned from appearing on NBC, insiders tell the DRUDGE REPORT.
“We are just not going to have her on any more, it’s over,” a top network source explains.
But a second top suit strongly denies there is any “Coulter ban”.
“Look for a re-invite, as soon as Wednesday,” said the news executive, who asked not to be named.
Tonight on Hannity and Colmes, Coulter said if she happened to be re-invited, she may just cancel it herself at the last moment. That would be cool.
One network insider claims it was the book’s theme — a brutal examination of liberal bias in the new era — that got executives to dis-invite the controversialist.
“We are just not interested in anyone so highly critical of President-elect Obama, right now,” a TODAY insider reveals. “It’s such a downer. It’s just not the time, and it’s not what our audience wants, either.”
The audience of NBC news doesn’t really want that kind of news information? Big of them to decide that for you isn’t it?
For her part, Ann comments ‘I guess this ends the “they just want to get ratings” argument about liberal media bias.’
