COULTER: IT WOULD BE A GOOD THING IF U.S. TROOPS KILLED JOURNALISTS
On CNBC's Kudlow & Kramer show:
LARRY KUDLOW: You got a couple seconds before the break, when you guys are all gonna come back, but Ann, I just want to give you first whack at this: Eason Jordan, top news executive at CNN -- I mean, to me, this is absolutely incredible. This guy says, at a big conference in Davos, that the U.S. military is deliberately targeting and assassinating American journalists? Hunh? He still has a job? Hunh? You got a take on that?
ANN COULTER: Would that it were so. (Laughs)
KUDLOW: (Laughs) Would what were so?
COULTER: (Laughs) That the American military were targeting journalists.
KUDLOW: (Laughs) Oh, no! Don't go there!...
Video here. (Yeah, it's the Glenn Reynolds blog at MSNBC. Sorry.)
I don't want to talk about what Eason Jordan said or didn't say (the facts are in dispute). I want to talk about Ann Coulter giggling, again, while advocating the killing of people she considers her ideological enemies. She said Timothy McVeigh should have blown up every reporter and editor at The New York Times. Now she says U.S. troops should kill reporters in Iraq.
Explain to me again: Why is Ward Churchill a pariah and Ann Coulter isn't?
