Papers Nix Coulter’s Column
Posted on Mar 9, 2007
A number of newspapers around the country have dropped Ann Coulter’s syndicated column following her now-notorious homophobic zinger at a conference of conservatives last week. In addition to the three papers Editor & Publisher tallied Thursday, Media Matters on Friday named two more dailies that have had it with Coulter’s antics, and the website helpfully offers contact information for those that still carry her column.

Media Matters for America has learned that two additional newspapers, The Sanford Herald of North Carolina and the Daily Chronicle of DeKalb, Illinois, have dropped right-wing pundit Ann Coulter’s column following Coulter’s appearance at the Conservative Political Action Conference, where she referred to Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards (NC) as a “faggot.” On March 8, Media Matters published a list of newspapers that carried Coulter’s columns, as well as the email addresses of those papers’ editors.
