Subject: RE: BS: Ann Coulter scrapes bottom
Sorry Kat, I can't agree with what you advocating. While the media does not review everything, to choose to avoid a public figure and a controversial story is blacklisting pure and simple.    The media is accused of being biased already and to stop printing stories about someone that a lot of people follows would clearly be a case of the media trying to set public opinion. It is one thing for a magazine or newspaper with a stated political slant to editorialize, but to suggest that the media avoid commenting on Ann Coulter is one step closer to book burning.

We can't separate ourselves from the people and ideas that we detest by adopting the same methods ourselves.
