Rick Perlstein catches Ann Coulter accidentally telling the truth about the Republican Party's "news" network.
Ann Coulter's latest column claims that "New York cabbies' compliance rate on daily bathing" is less than 48 percent; dilates upon the reporting in the "Treason Times"; and reflects, "Fox News ought to buy a copy of Monday's Democrat [sic] debate on CNN to play over and over during the general election campaign," because the only people it could possibly convince to vote for a Democrat are "losers blogging from their mother's basements."
Really? Why would a fair and impartial news network, with no interest in helping one political party or another, want to do that? Or, as Rick put it, "[W]hy ever would Fox care about electing Republicans, given that they're a news organization in the business of 'fair and balanced'?"
A "Michael Kinsley Moment" is when a political figure makes a mistake by accidentally telling the truth. I think Coulter's quip qualifies.
