Ann Coulter's PR Formula: Hate Speech + Media Coverage = Best-Seller

David Carr examines Ann Coulter's simple PR formula for marketing her best-selling books: vile hate speech echoed in the mainstream media. In her five books Ann Coulter has "suggested wistfully that Timothy McVeigh should have parked his truck in front of the New York Times, joked that a Supreme Court justice should be poisoned, and said that America should invade Muslim countries and kill their leaders." Bob Wietrak of Barnes & Noble observes Ann Coulter's "fan base is phenomenal and she is in the media constantly. When she is in the media, it creates more media coverage. And every single day, the book sells more." TV loves Ann Coulter Carr concludes because "seeing hate-speech pop out of a blonde who knows her way around a black cocktail dress makes for compelling viewing. ... You can accuse her of cynicism all you want, but the fact that she is one of the leading political writers of our age says something about the rest of us."


She certainly knows her way around an Adam's apple. Please don't include me in your comment ". . .the fact that she is one of the leading political writers of our age says something about the rest of US." I know exactly what she is, and she is no political writer. Spare me.

A female Rush Limbaugh who appeals to the morons that now seem to make up most of American society. The wealthy elite have done their dumbing-down of what used to be admirable human beings very well, as evidenced by scum like Coulter being popular. Whether America was ever truly "a great country" I don't know. It's definitely the largest collection of psychos in history now. I look forward to its end.

Having a social science background, my opinion of Ms. Coulton is that
she is a modern day Horatio Alger. Average is all respects, she
has found her way to stardom using the only means available to the
very mediocre. How do you get people to pay attention to you when
you only have a modest intellect? Dare to say the unthinkable! It
will get you noticed. That is why she is in the conservative camp.
It simply gets her more noticed. What if people hate you and dismiss
you as a look? Surround yourself with the highest amount of moral
credibility a woman can have in modern Western society - be very, very thin. (Lets face it, if she were a fat or even average sized
WOMAN, she could not get away with what she does.) And being that
thin brings her even more attention. I have often wondered why women
buy into weight obsession (if they didn't, it would go away.) Why will an Oprah audience clap harder for a woman who dropped 50lbs than
a Noble Prize winner? Because most of them can never be a Noble Prize winner, so losing weight is their way to Cinderella hood. I think part of Coulton's appeal is that deep down the public understands she is below mediocre in all respects, but she is a queen just by virtue of wanting it badly enough. Even if they don't choose
to take it, I think she reminds them they too can have their 15 minutes of fame if they so desire. To me, it is very sad any human
needs attention that badly. On the other hand, I came across a bumper sticker I had never seen before. "Would someone PLEASE give
Bush a ****job so we can impeach him too?" After I stopped retching at the thought of it, I wondered WHO could possible love their county
THAT much???? Only Ms. Coulton came to mind!

Coulter is a man. Wait til she finally comes out one day and you will finally understand the person.
