Matt Lauer Debates Ann Coulter, Loses

There are two reason Lauer lost the debate with Coulter over her stomach-churning statement about the 9/11 widows. First, as I argued recently, the mere granting of a platform to someone as obviously disturbed as Coulter is already a stain on the media outlet:
"When Coulter is invited to spout her putrescence on Larry King Live, the legitimacy granted to her is CNN's fault, not Coulter's. After all, there's no shortage of desperate attention seekers willing to say and do outlandish things to get noticed. The question is, why does CNN grant an open forum to this particular whack-job and not others?"
Second, Lauer failed to stay focused on Coulter's words: "I have never seen people enjoying their husbands’ death so much." Lauer should have said the following:
"There are two possible explanations for your statement. Either you believe it, in which case you're deranged. You don't believe it but said it for shock value, in which case you don't belong within a thousand miles of this network. Choose one."

Ann Coulter is sick, sick, sick. I doubt that she has ever been married - who would want that lunatic as a mate? Ms. Coulter - what goes around, comes around! Why don't you join the human race?

I would love to meet Ann the man Coulter on a street corner in nyc any day of the week. I know for a fact that in public, without her security guards, she wouldn't get away with her attack on the 911 families, who lost so much on that horrible day. I didn't lose my husband on 911 but i did lose a couple of friends of our family. I also lost all respect and trust i had for this nation to keep my family and friends safe. I think Ann has lost what little was left of her mind. I would take great pleasure in taking that little twit to the house of my neighbor who lost her son on 911. Her son sound-proofed the basement so he wouldn't bother the neighbors when he played his music. I think we can test just how sound-proof it really is.

What she is saying strikes home with alot of people in this nation.

We all grieve for the losses incurred on 9/11. It affected the nation, not just NY. How much did the victims get in donations from across this country? WE CARE! If you really cared about the widows you would find out what happened to the Millions of dollars sent to NY by citizens and the BILLIONS of dollars in fedral funds that cannot be accounted for to this day.

As for Marriage between one man and one woman, you better believe the majority of citizens support this amendment and have voted overwhelmingly to support this constitutional amendment in state elections across this country.

Hey anonymous --

What the heck are you talking about? What unaccounted-for billions? And what does this have to do with the people left widowed by the attacks on the World Trade Center?

You seem to be recycling some right-wing talking points in an attempt to turn this thread addressing Ann Coulter's comments into a general attack on New York City and ... then ... gay marriage?

Total non sequitur, dude. Your thinking appears to have gotten warped somehow. You need to stop listening to so much talk radio, and give your logical processes a chance to recover.

Disagree strongly: to dispel hate-mongers like Coulter you have to turn over a few rocks. It's a fact that Coulter gets lots of winger airtime, and a serious airing of her hate literature on PBS isn't going to effectively counter her bile. Do you seriously think that she and all her allied demons will simply disappear if they aren't displayed in the MSM? Wrong.

Somebody's been making the point that Democrats and whatever represents the left in America are in need of shaking themselves awake. This latest Coulter ridiculousness only emphasises the point. Stop questioning the womans sanity and fight her on her own turf. She's just trying to sell books remember.

"Pay attention..." strikes me as the kind of lost soul who needs to be given a clear alternative to this pathetic (and sadly common) line of attack on ordinary people who are constitutionally entitled to express how they feel about their government, whether they be widowed or otherwise.

Ann Coulter likes to throw around phrases like "liberal infallibilty doctrine," as if this is a substantive concept that she will discuss using actual logic. But she doesn't... she engages in personal attacks, like questioning the sincerity of the grief felt by the 9/11 widows. She also disproves the very notion that these people (Joe Wilson, Cindy Sheehan, 9/11 widows) "can't be attacked," because she does--and she's not the only one. Right wing radio and talk shows have bashed all of the people she mentioned.

Colier Rannd is right. Coulter, O'Reilly, Limbaugh, etc. (Bush/Cheney included) enjoy the deaths that occurred in 2001 to no end. They can't stop talking about it; they can't stop profiting from it; they can't stop gaining politically from it.

Really, the sad issue is that we don't hear from 'Katrina widows/widowers' and that the MSM hasn't completely discredited poor Miss Coulter.

Ann Coulter is a jackass, but we all know that. She is shameless and would do or say anything just to hock her latest book. She adds nothing to society, and spews her anti-liberal hatred to the point where it just becomes mundane. Does she ever say anything revolutionary or offer an alternative to liberal thinking that isn't in the GOP talking points? Nope, she just drones on and on with the same useless bullshit.

Unfortunately, this time, her target are the 9/11 widows who have been through enough. I don't know where Miss Ann is seeing non-stop coverage of these widows, because I really haven't heard much from them since the completion of the 9/11 Commission report. I don't fault any major magazine for doing a "9/11: 5 Years Later" update about these families, because I think the majority of Americans are still concerned about the victims and their families and would genuinely like to know if they are doing okay.

Maybe, like the grade school bully, if we ignore Miss Ann, she will just go away.

They were the NASCAR states. You know why people love NASCAR so much? Duh... not only do the cars crash, but they explode too!

Listen to Mann Coulter and his screechy voice and his kill 'em all MANtality. Whenever the dick-swingin' bitch opens his yap, liberals explode. Then way too many of us get all busy wetting our pants over it and crying foul. When Mann & Co. say that we liberals have no ideas... what they really mean is that we don't know how to kick ass. And it's true. And that is a real shame, 'cus there are so danged many butt-fuckin' stupid red-state nimrods out there that couldn't outwit an old head-o-cabbage. We could march right down there, kick their hillbilly asses sideways and back again and they'd all love us for it.

Whatever your political views are, do you realize that when you launch a personal attack on Anne Coulter you make her point for her? The point she made was that anyone who dared to speak ill about a widow (i.e. Anne Coulter) would be attacked personally, and that's why the 9/11 widows are used for propaganda. Many of you lack the vision to see past that and play right into her hands. Losing a relative on 9/11, or the Iraq war doesn't make you an expert on foreign policy.

Actually, Austin Powers said it all when it comes to Ann Coulter, "She's a man, baby!"

Richard Mellon Schiafe found him/her while out trolling in gay bars in Gainesville in the late 80's. She was still more he then she back then and was trying to make it as a drag queen but couldn't cut it because she couldn't sing, had no talent, and the other "girls" hated her because she was such a raging bitch even then. And she stole their stuff. She was such a nasty skank.
It was well known that the only reason the boss put up with her was because he didn't have to listen to her mouth as long as he kept something in it.
But even he was glad when Schiafe took her away.
She came back once to show off after a couple of years of Schiafe paying for her treatments. She looked better but she was still such a bitch that we all threatened to kick her ass if she didn't get the f**k out of there. that was the last I saw of her until I saw her on TV trashing Clinton with Jennifer Flowers.

Coulter is bringing to light, in her own typical sarcastic way, what I have been wondering for years: Why do the 9/11 widows have any say in post 9/11 policy? We certainly sympathize with them but why do we have to listen to them talk politics about the future of our country at this critical point in our history? 9/11 is about the future of the USA, not about the opinions of a group of widows. You all don't get Ann. You always nitpick her "outrageous" statements she uses to bait you guys but miss the bigger picture she paints, which is usually right on the money. What she's doing in her statement about the 9/11 widows is condemning the politically correct media for propping up these women, as if their opinion means diddly squat, and woe to the one who dares refute the poor grieving widows.

But you all choose to miss the boat, calling her sick. That's great debating. I guess I'm sick too, along with half of America.

It's interesting reading these comments. It seems that in the world of blogs, anyone you don't agree with is not only a hate-monger, but mentally ill, and on meth. Ms. Coulter says some very controversial (and sometimes stupid) things, but so do some Democrats (i.e. Howard Dean). Calling someone a nasty name doesn't refute their argument. If it's a bad arguement then explain why! Isn't it a bit hypocritical to say that she shouldn't be listened to because she resorts to personal attacks then call her mentally ill? I'm not asking anyone to agree with her, but for god's sake, don't dismiss her comments off hand simply because you don't like what she said.

If it pleases you, buy her books; if it doesn't, write nasty things about her. Either way, she wins. As a topic, she reminds me of the brohaha concerning the "issue" of gay marriage - it's all really marginal, to most, kind of silly and certainly not anywhere near as important as the real issues facing our world.

Man! It just feels like the responses here are ALL missing the point of her statement. How can there be a reasonable debate with someone who is in the widow's position? Why do you think that the widow has a superior moral position upon which to stand in discussing terrorism or what we as a country, or the Bush Administration as our government should do in response to the problem. I would suggest that the widow probably had very little knowledge in the field prior to 9-11. One of the reasons I love Ann Coulter is that she often says things that are painfully obvious, but can't be said for political reasons. Keep on going Ann!

Coulter's book Treason is a masterwork. I will read Godless with much interest. Anyone with a brain and eyes to see knows what Coulter means by the liberal infallibility doctrine--society's "victims"(i.e. women, ethnics, poor, war widows, children, etc.) are put forward as spokesmen for their grievance. Who wants to take a head shot at a grieving woman, or sincerely whining child? Reminds me of Islamic terrorists hiding among their women and children, daring our soldiers to shoot. Coulter has the balls to shoot. Thank God she, and our soldiers, do.

Let us see how moral Republicans are:

Republican candidate Richard Gardner of Clark County, Nevada admitted to molesting his two daughters.

Republican director of the “Young Republican Federation” Nicholas Elizondo of Bakersfield, California molested his 6-year old daughter and was sentenced to six years in prison.

Republican Speaker of the Puerto Rico House of Representatives Edison Misla Aldarondo was sentenced to 10 years in prison for raping his daughter between the ages of 9 and 17.

Republican Party leader Paul Ingram of Thurston County, Washington pleaded guilty to six counts of raping his daughters and served 14 years in federal prison.

Republican advertising consultant Carey Lee Cramer of Arizona was charged with molesting his 9-year old step daughter after including her in an anti-Gore television commercial.

Republican activist and Christian Coalition and South Carolina Republican leader Beverly Russell admitted to an incestuous relationship with his step daughter.

you guys miissed the forest for the trees on this one. She was referring not to the wives of husbands lost in 911, but to the wives of husbands lost on 911 and using that to make a political statement. Of course everyone feels for those lost and the loved ones lost, but how do you disagree with someone stating something on the back of a loss, with no real knowledge, stating facts? You are (apply any adjective you would like) insensitive if you question the premise of their arguement because they lost someone.

She shouldn't get air time because she says some things you don't like, yet you are the same people that get really upset when someone on your side is pushed away because their freedom of speech is impeded upon.

You call her names but get upset when she calls your crowd names. Like she calls you a left wing nujob and you retaliate by calling her a right wing nutjob.

The only difference between her and Al Franken is Al's 1000 times funnier and Ann knows 1000 times more about American History.

What's wrong with this country isn't people like her, it's people like yourselves who are hypocrites.

liberal policies kill the people they are working for. abortion doesn't benifit anyone in the long term and clinics have been found to have links to anti black extreamist groups (see klanparenthood.org) same with affirmative action, same with immigration etc.

If liberals keep to their word technically they'd be more apt to abort vs conservatives who generally wont. Since kids take after their parents politically just by the numbers they are losing

We also have a growing Catholic hispanic population and abortion doesn't fit in there....it also makes it a target of every other major religion...

Ann certainly brings out the porblems that are killing the country -> litigation at all costs as a why to make money.

To many times we listen to wacko's who only by virtue of their personal "loss" are injecting themselves into politics as some kind of expert. Widows lost their spouses that's all.

To the genius defending Coulter:

Perhaps you missed (or chose to ignore) the little F-A-C-T about her that I referenced. This woman said RFK was the first victim of "Islamic terrorism." She LIED. There's no debate - she LIED.

This is the problem with people like you. The woman LIVES on namecalling, and you act like it's merely those who disagree with your/her viewpoint that start the namecalling. I've got news for you: that's all she's worthy of - namecalling.

She is a lowlife, and continues to prove it. She loves you guys so much that she LIVES in the most "liberal" cities, yet goes to dumbf*ck, USA only when she needs to make a few shekels off of you rubes. Namecalling is universal - get use to it. The only difference is that when I do it, at least my post features an ACTUAL (and factual) example of her bullsh*t. Can you do the same?

Instead of merely giving your opinion on why we feel the way we do about her, give us a damn example of one of her F-A-C-T-S. I'm sick of generalizations. Give SPECIFICS.

I read the majority of posts here and watched the interview w/ Ann. My response to the majority of posts is that they are based on emotion not fact. Many here appear to hate Ann Coulter because she dose not sugar coat her opinion. She does this for a variety of reasons that are not important to this discussion. Regardless of the delivery, her statements were all true and her form (although not appreciated) was valid. To any of you that use logic as the means to form opinion, you know the undeniable outcome; she is right. Ann coulter made Matt Lauer look like a fool on several issues including the Presidents focus on gay marriage as a re-election ploy. Mr. Lauer's arguments on the Presidents politically motivated attention to gay marriage and Ann Coulters comments on the 911 widows were obviously not thought out. The fact that he was grilling her and clearly upset at her criticism of the 911 widows, was a clear contradiction his point that they are not an infallible voice. Ann Couter needed no help maikng Mr. Lauer look stuipd. He made it there all on his own.

"liberal infallibilty doctrine" is not a throw away phrase. It's spot on. Liberals are never wrong and can't ever be challenged. And they can throw out anything they want without evidence. When the right challenges a liberal, they're accused of being racist or a bigot or a lier. Just like you're all challenging Ann. Her point on the widows was simply that the left throws them out to deliver the talking points, knowing that to challenge them is ruinous for the right.

Conservatives cling to their narrow social agenda even when everyone realizes that virtually none of it is important in the big picture of history. Can you imagine future historians proclaiming "we found out that gays couldn't marry in 2006!" after digging through our ruins?

This is not a game to "win". This is not a debate where scoring points with "gotcha" lines matters. This is the future of a nation at stake. So why don't both sides quit acting like children.

What Ann says is correct and we all know it. The opportunists have made a whole lot of money off of 9/11, including the City of New York as well as the victim vultures we see after every tragedy, using their dead loved ones for personal gain, fame and influence. Coulter and Franken serve indispensible functions in our society; I prefer Ann, of course, but I defend your neurotic right to listen to Al Franken.

I get it: Coulter is a wingnut, but the Air America crowd, Kos and the rest of the Left she so deftly skewers are paragons of sanity and dispassionate analysis? You lefties are way past the bend. Coulter, like it or not, has sold millions of books. Conservatives, by the way, read much more than liberals. Sorry that conflicts with your sense of intellectual superiority, just as Bush's better grades than Al Gore and better verbal SAT than Bill Bradley confounds you still. You guys are pathetic. Keep attacking Ann...as she makes another bestseller list. (How many books did Kos sell.....?

The Lib Logic on this thread is amazing! If Coulter were a DEM you Libs would be singing a different tune..." Oh my, Freedom of Speech" What were you saying to Ward Churchill comments about 9/11? So let me guess; when the comments are in line with your petty politics it's called Freedom of Speech......when they are not it's all this childish name calling on display in this thread! And you wonder why you clowns remain in a minority status! Oh wait! It's because clear thinking Americans "stole" your status... right! A new class of Americans has developed...Not "Baby Boomers" just "Babies"!

You anti-Ann folks just don't get it. Ann is the conservative antidote to the Al Franken, Michael
Moore, and celebrity drivel we on
the Right or in the center are
forced to listen to whenever they
get the notion to write a book.

And, dear anti-Ann folks, look up
the definition of "satire" sometime
when you are not reading up on
global warming: it is deliberately
"over the top." That's what we
have to put up with whenever we
stumble onto Saturday Night Live
sketches, David Letterman's lame
and tired persona, and Keith Ober-
mann. Its satire, boys and girls,
so get over it.

By the way, she would thank you
for all the attention you are
giving her today!

Anonymous two... It appears that the liberals are restless tonight. Would someone like to debate the issue or just continue to throw stones? I wish they had put Katie Couric up with her to debate. That ultraliberal (communist loving) would have had her clock cleaned. I saw Ann in Minnesota when she gave a speech on how liberals can not debate and she made the liberals on campus look like buffoons. When they could not debate her statements on the merits, they called her names, used foul language, and finally started singing a song from the Simpsons to try and drown her out. All the while she was proving her point that liberals could not debate their way out of a paper bag. It really made me fear another liberal in the White House. Speaking of communists, how many of you liberals know that in 1996 the CIA declassified the fact that they had wire tapped and broken the code on the sub-atlantic phone line from the Kremlin to the Soviet Consulate in Washington D.C. in the 1950's? The interesting thing is that the President did not even know it, but guess who did? You did not guess it, Senator McCarthy, and it turns out that everyone he accused of being a communist spy was indeed a communist spy, but he could not prove it in the 1950's without compromising the fact that we had intercepted communications from Moscow naming the very people he later accused! Amazing how communist loving liberals don't mention that little fact when screaming McCartyism.

I am guess many don't see these 'select' group of Widows spewing out the same lines in the form of ranting about the Bush administration as though reading from a teleprompter. It is also wrong that these Widows became millionaires from 9/11. And it is the same ones (registered Democrats by chance? Hmmm) who keep re-appearing on all of the news shows saying the same old thing "It was on Bush's watch" Blah blah blah!. And today they get paid like Cindy Sheehan by special interest groups...(many with socialist/communist affiliations) Not long ago it got to where they almost hold out a tin cup, everytime they were seen on TV. Do they enjoy the $$, and media attention? They really seem to. THAT IS THE PROBLEM!!

IF what she said is true, will many of you calling her 'nuts'. What does that really make the truly ignorant out there?
What she says can be shocking and come off incensitive. But telling it like it is isn't always pleasing to the ear or acceptable to the masses.
So shut the F*** up! ;)

I love Ann Coulter's wit, and look forward to her Wednesday piece each week. To clarify for those who obviously have not noticed, she is a satirist -- an old and grand tradition in our English speaking heritage. To spell it out -- for Lauer to take her 911 widow comment literally would have been silly and would have made him (and the producer in his earphone)look weak minded. He had to match her wit -- a tall order for him or anyone else for that matter. Would your view be that Jonathan Swift really meant the Irish should eat their own children in his A Modest Proposal?

Wow, a lot of attacks on Ann Coulter for what? Daring to question the motives of family members of those who died in 9/11? Their deaths were indeed a tragedy, as are the senseless deaths that happen across the country every day, from drunk driving, crime, or what have you. The difference is that (1) the 9/11 families get million dollar settlement checks and (2) an untouchable platform from which to air their grievances about the memorial, the rebuilding at the World Trade Center site, the war in Iraq, or whatever they want. Please. Ann might ruffle some feathers by choosing an inflamatory topic, but she is dead on.

I see, so if Laur had interviewed Michael Moore, that wouldn't be a stain in NBC?

Michael Moore: “What happened to the search for Osama bin Laden?...You don't think they [the U.S. government] know where he is?”

Bob Costas (astonished): “You think they know where Osama bin Laden is and it's hands off?”

Moore: “Absolutely, absolutely.”

Costas: “Why?”

Moore: “Because he's funded by their friends in Saudi Arabia! He's back living with his sponsors, his benefactors. Do you think that Osama bin Laden planned 9-11 from a cave in Afghanistan? I can't get a cell signal from here to Queens! I mean, come on, let's get real about this. The guy has been on dialysis for two years. He's got failing kidneys....I think the United States, I think our government knows where he is and I don't think we're going to be capturing him or killing him any time soon.”

You guys are a bunch of hypocrites.

When Bush ran political ads with images from 9/11, the left cried foul:

But it's A-OK to use 9/11 widows who happen to be members of the DNC get on TV and bad-mouth the president.

Coulter's statement is spot-on. Sheehan and the activist 9/11 widows should be ashamed of themselves by politicizing the deaths of their loved ones -- using their deaths for political gain.

Ann Coulter claims to speak for Christians. By a clue from the Bible, Ms. or Mr. Coulter. Jesus never walked around looking like a sex tart while spewing judgements on anyone or everyone with which He did not agree.
She is obscene in her negative, self-serving crusade. But the obscenity is only compounded by the fact that 1) she is given venue 2) she has supporters.
p.s. Any of these public figures who make their comfortable livings by destructing others give credence that ours is a doomed society. There are so many healthy, talented, gifted people who spend all their waking hours giving of themselves in constructive ways all over the world.

If you don't agree with someone, then just marginalize them. That is what I see with 99% of the posts in here against Ann Coulter, which certainly doesn't reflect much diversity.

I happen to agree with Ms. Coulter on many of her ideologies which you can investigate for yourself by reading her books. I like to think of her core message as self empowerment and personal responsibility, namely, you have far more power to improve your life, those around you, and ultimately the community by living by a grounded code of living. The 10 commandments are a good start, which have been tested for millenia. Government is not the solution, YOU are the solution.

Looking forward to your marginalizations of me, in the spirit of 'tolerance', I'm sure.

Let's take two potential tragedies: a family member is killed on 9-11, or a family member goes off the road in a snowstorm and is killed. Why should the 9-11 victim's family get compensated and the other's not? It is sick that these greedy people prey on the sympathies of Americans and feel that their loss is so much more important. As a person who has suffered the loss of a child, how dare you feel that your grief warrants compensation while mine does not? If anyone should be made millionaires through personal loss, it is the families of the poor servicemen who do the real dirty work. And oh yes, I would rather the government monitor my harmless telephone calls than to look warily at every suspicious person with a backpack. Coulter is abrasive, as are many voices on far right, but have you really listened to the bile coming from the far left. Really disgusting crap. You deserve Coulter!

You forgot that we bombed Serbia for 78 straight days with no vote from Congress or the United Nations. A Democrat president did that, unilaterally, because they claimed there were 100,000 people who were killed because of "genocide".

The official body count from the United Nations is under 3,000, and most of them were killed by our bombings. Where are the mass graves, Mr. Clinton?

Clinton lied to take us to war and we still have troops there.

But the liberals don't care that we killed 3,000-5,000 civilians and bombed roads, bridges, hospitals indiscriminately to take the news away from one of many Clinton scandals.

The issue with the 9/11 widows was always that a handful of telegenic Bush haters were presented by the MSM as the representatives for the thousands that lost immediate family in 9/11.

Of course, many that lost family members on 9/11 had different political views. But the MSM wouldn't touch them. Which is par for the course. Just ask the Swift Boat Vets and global warming skeptics.

Ann made a great point about how the left uses grief as a cover for their efforts to silence dissent. This is a very old trick which the television apparatchiks in NYC have perfected. If you have a situation in which people have been killed, you find some of the surviving family members of the victims who have a beef against the conservatives. You put these folks in front of a camera and let them vent, thus politicizing the tragedy and making it difficult for the opposition to attack the "grieving family member". It is completely despicable and I have seen this technique put into practice by the left wing media for nigh on to forty years now. Ann Coulter is to be congratulated for calling them on it in front of a national TV audience. This lady has more courage than any dweeb Republican politician I have known.

I'm amazed how black and white every issue has become. Both sides are guilty of this. If you agree with what someone says then they are omnicient, if not they are evil idiots. There are shades of gray in everything. Ann Coulter is an extemely intelligent and thoughtful woman. Some of the ideas she spouts are done with a certain degree of vitriol that may not be necessary, however her general message is in the right direction.

Cindy Sheehan is the best example of what she is trying to say. This woman was a fruitcake but the left got behind her because they thought her to be untouchable. In the long run should prove to be a huge mistake.
