CNN Rewards Coulter with Attention She Craves

Brian Zick

Media Matters reports that on the March 5 edition of CNN Newsroom, correspondent Rick Sanchez discussed the latest gob of Ann Coulter sputum. Although video clips were played of John Edwards saying "I think it's important that we not reward hateful, selfish, childish behavior with attention," and Republican Pete Hoekstra saying "We really need to stay focused on the issues and not make this personal," CNN throughout the piece displayed on-screen promo text pointedly giving attention to Coulter's scheduled March 5 appearance on CNN's Paula Zahn Now program. Of course, if only Zahn would host Bachem Macuno in a joint appearance with Coulter, to discuss his story, it might well be worth watching. via Tracy Van Slyke
