And the mainstream media reigns again. The leftist media is enemy #2, right behind the jihadists.

This thread is good for 300 replies, easy. At least half will include the words "Ann", "spike" and "column".

How is it Michael Moore is going to actually get down on the floor and cover real news without getting the S**T beat out of him every single time.

Now, regarding his ideological masters at Gannett, there were two TWIN TOWERS of some note in the country. One set was the World Trade Center in New York. The other set was in Rosslyn, and was built originally for the Gannett Corporation and their USA Today rag.

My understanding is Osama didn't particularly care "which Twin Towers" got smacked, so the issue is just exactly how much did Gannett pay AlQaida to hit the other set?

Drudge is looking out for his ex, I see.

Meh...this is to be expected. Ann is too clever and vitriolic for most mainstream press. If they wanted a lapdog conservative, maybe George Will would do. He seems to be pretty apathetic these days. Ann, on the other hand, is all fire and brimstone when it comes to Dems - and USSRToday should have known that when they asked her for a column.

Anti-American Liberal media bias is never moore evident than in protecting the Leftist liar Moore while spiking truth-telling Ann Coulter's column.

While their circulation numbers flounder, had it ever occured to them to correlate that with the 50+% of Americans who will re-elect President Bush?

Only Liberals can operate private businesses in the same manner they would run a country - self-loathing and suicidal.

Playing for the French market is a curiousity for a publication called USA TODAY.

Non?

I called USA Today only to be directed to Gannet/USA at

1-800-872-7073

The woman answering was very flustered when I asked why USA Today would hire Michael Moore to represent them?

She said she didn;t know anyhting about it, stammering the whole time.

A good freep is in order.

Phil Hendries, pictured with Ann, is a clever broadcaster on KFI LA who is Democrat for Bush. He is a rarity: an old school (although only in his 50s)patriotic Dem who supports the troops and their mission. And he looks thrilled to be next to Ann. lol.

What's interesting about Michael Moore, is that since his "Roger and Me" days, he has never offered any constructive solution or proposal toward anything he critiques thru his films. Most people who operate like that are shunned as intellectual lightweights. I've seen many people dead ended in profession due to their endless willingness to point out what others are or are not doing within the same organization. Some even get fired for it.

The fact that Moore is celebrated for it says very little for those who promote him. The man is a Peter Principle who avoids getting hit because he has a "next film" excuse for some yet to be informed group of victims of someone in a position of political or economic power.

Didn't Drudge run a story late last week that Moore had been denied credentials for the convention?

I seem to recall quite a few posts about him having to use the loading dock, etc.

"They should have read my work before they hired me!" Coulter said.

Ann is bright enough to know who she is dealing with, so I'll bet she gets paid and Today doesn't have exclusive. She'll sell the rejected articles elsewhere, get paid twice and we'll see her wit just the same.

Without reading Ms. Coulter's article, we cannot pass judgment as to why it was 86'd. It may well have just been a bad piece.

There, count me as one who did not use the three words mentioned.

Someone said that Ms. Coulter is not a comedienne, well she sure is hell is funnier then one who claims to be (Whoopie)

I just called USA Today and got transfered to "Media Relations". I asked if it was true that the editors had spiked an Ann Coulter column and yet were still taking submissions from Michael Moore. I also asked if anybody there was aware the Mr. Moore was a Marxist propagandist. The lady said she did not have that info but would have someone call me.

I find it reassuring that neither the mainstream media outlets like McPaper (USA Today) and the Democratic Party in general, are behaving EXACTLY as they have for the past decade or more.

so much for "vetting" speeches to "tone down the rhetoric".

This week has the potential to be even worse for the Democrats than last week was, and last week was bad no matter who you are supporting in the coming election.

Just emailed USAToday (PRAVDAToday, DNCToday) and registered my complaint. Then, picked up my phone and gave Gannett a call, was transferred to a voicemail message at the desk of the 'letters to the editor' where I further registered a verbal complaint.

It's fun, and profitable. Everyone should do it.
