Ann Coulter Caught In Another Lie

My fellow blogger - (and defender of the truth from right wing assault) - Jonathan Hutson, has a great post on Daily KOS.

Writing as the Legal Affairs correspondent for the September 19, 2007, issue of Human Events, propagandist Ann Coulter smears trial attorneys, especially former Senator John Edwards, and also initiates a blatant falsehood.

Coulter sweepingly asserts that trial attorneys are heartless and greedy "charlatans" who prey on doctors and that Democratic presidential candidate and noted trial attorney John Edwards in particular is a "parasite" because he has championed patients' rights and has sued to hold doctors accountable for malpractice. Coulter contrasts her claims with the fact that doctors show they care about improving society by working for organizations such as Doctors Without Borders.

Coulter asks, "Has anyone else noticed the nonexistence of a charitable organization known as 'Lawyers Without Borders'?"

So Coulter asserts. However, in fact, there IS a U.S.-based charitable organization called exactly that. Yet Coulter did not bother to check her facts.

Lawyers Without Borders bills itself as "the world’s largest group of volunteer lawyers from around the globe who stand ready to offer pro bono service to worldwide projects and initiatives."

Coulter, who holds a J.D. from the University of Michigan Law School, ought to know that law firms, nonprofit legal organizations, and individual attorneys from the U.S. and many other nations donate time and services to Lawyers Without Borders. Currently, the organization focuses on advocating for human rights and supporting the rule of law in Ethiopia, Liberia, Cameroon, Namibia, Palestinian Territories (Israel), Rwanda, Uganda, Tanzania, and Mozambique.

Al Franken and others have previously documented shoddy research, mischaracterizations, and misleading statements by polemicist Ann Coulter. Perhaps it's time she forfeited her claim to being a conservative columnist and instead be known as what she is: a reckless calumnist.

But the baseless smear of trial lawyers is not the biggest whopper that Coulter tells in her latest column. The biggest whopper is her lede: "The only 'crisis' in health care in this country is that doctors are paid too little." Go back and check your facts, Ms. Coulter.

This isnt even post worthy, she didnt lie, dumb ass just didnt check her facts.

Slow day?

It's post worthty because she is typical of right wing tactics in the 21st Century.

Every opportunity to expose her should be utilized.

I have yet to find one right-of-centre person worthy of writing about. Or for the lefties too.

Where are the modern-day Alsops or Lippmans?

What's worse is that there's a very bad crop of rightists. Not so bad a crop on the left.

Ann Coulter is particularly loathsome. Do you not recall her, 'invade their country, kill their leaders, convert them to christianity' line?

Or her 'Edwards is a faggot' remark?

Or her condemnation of 9/11 widows for seeking pensions?

Ann Coulter is politically repulsive.

"This isnt even post worthy, she didnt lie, dumb ass just didnt check her facts."
Or she did, and simply didn't want to let the facts ruin a good diatribe. Lying or stupid.

Hey Leftdog, off topic but wanted to be the first to congratulate my Canadian friends on achieving economic supremacy over us ;).

Long live the loonie.

Funny thing about Ann Coulter is how the "Canadian" rightists continue to adore her, even after she grotesqely mocked our nation's fallen.
if you have the stomach, play the following clip, from a US radio station last year:


then try to imagine how the national post would respond if it had been uttered by a "liberal".
(she is referring to an incident that took the life of a well-regarded Canadian infantry officer in summer 2006)

NY Mama - yeah it feels kinda funny to have our Canuk Loonie at par with your Greenback! Hell I may have to drive down to Minot, North Dakota and throw a little money around!
