Universal Didn't Distribute 'Old Arab' in Coulter Column, Not Sure She Sent It
(hat tip Eric) E&P has verifyed our story as well:
NEW YORK Universal Press Syndicate confirms that Ann Coulter's description of fellow columnist Helen Thomas as an "old Arab" was not in the Feb. 23 Coulter piece it sent to newspapers. And Universal isn't even sure the phrase appeared in the version Coulter submitted to the syndicate.
The "old Arab" reference did appear in the version of the column posted on Coulter's Web site.
