FOX to Ann --

Be Our Guest... But That's It

3/6/2007 2:27 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Ann CoulterDespite referring to Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards as a fa**ot, FOX News Channel is standing by 45-year-old lanky, right-wing loudmouth Ann Coulter.

Just yesterday, FOX News booked Coulter on "Hannity & Colmes," where she defended her haughty homophobic invective, saying it was not "an insulting word" but a "schoolyard taunt" and a "joke."

TMZ asked FOX if they would dump Coulter. The obtuse response: "Ann Coulter is not a paid commentator and her remarks don't reflect the views of FOX News Channel." We take that as a "no."

TMZ also contacted Coulter's agent to see if she would be dropped for making the remark, just like CAA dropkicked conservative radio talk show host Michael Savage over a similar homophobic remark against Melissa Etheridge. But the powerful William Morris Agency was mum on Coulter. We called and e-mailed, but no response.

Hmm why do all the uneducated right-wing nut jobs even view post on this site? If it is so "liberal and biased" why do they read it? The answer? They are all closet-case brain dead trannies like Ann Coulter secretly looking for fashion tips from the likes of Paris Hilton.

43. "Coulter is a very intelligent person"

So was Hitler.
So was the Uni-Bomber
Some say David Duke is intelligent, too.

"and never says anything without a purpose"

And none of the people I mention did (or does), either.


Coulter is a pig. I'm so glad she finally hung herself. Even the most right wingers out there agree she's gone too far.

Isiah Washington didnt get off that easy -- Ann Coulter is a nasty piece of garbage - and she would not have called him a fa**ot in that sort of forum and in that fashion if she did not believe it to be a slur, slam, insult, etc...
I hope that the media does not let this one slide because of her so-called friends!

Why would TMZ want to know if FOXNews was going "to drop" a guest? Ann doesn't work for FOX. Watch the video, it was clearly a harmless joke.

What is the difference between Coulter making this joke and Whoopi Goldberg likening the President of the United States to a woman's .. well, "bush,"? The only difference is that Coulter's joke was funny and Whoopi's was not.
Ann Coulter rocks and is not afraid to be politically incorrect! yay for her.

Ann Coulter looks like a horse, only not as pretty. If she could get laid once every year or so she wouldn't be such a bitter old rag.

For the retarded republicans who cite things blindly, the first Amendment states

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or
prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Unless congress tells the tranny to shut her fucking mouth, her first amendment rights are not being treaded on. Even Ann Coulter has said herself "They're [Democrats] always accusing us of repressing their speech. I say let's do it. Let's repress them. Frankly, I'm not a big fan of the First Amendment." But honestly I hope she keeps talking, she is doing us Democrats a HUGE favor. That's right honey just keep alienating the minorities, that’s a great way to win an election.

And yeah I used to call people "gay" when I was younger but I also listened to New Kids on the Block and had a perm but then you GROW UP!

Freedom of speech only applies when you say it would have been better if Cheney had been blown up or that Bush sucks ass. No freedom of speech when it comes to using words that sensitive-americans are sensitive to.

Coulter was mild in what she said ,but if she told you how she really felt about all you pollyannas you would be cryin for the next hundred years. Coulter is an Icon.She will put you in your place every time you open your mouth about your life style. I will buy her book, I will pay to see her lectures, I will continue to support the Republicians, in other words you can win.

It is really easy to take comments out of context like TMZ and the rest of the mainstream media. Ms. Coulter was merely stating a fact that if you make a comment like Isaiah Washington did you will have to go to rehab. What the media didn't show you was that she went on to say that the G.O.P. was not anti gay and they could care less about somebody's sexual orientation. While I do enjoy TMZ, I wish they wouldn't show their liberal roots when things like this come along. I also didn't appreciate the slam on President Bush 41 yesterday that he lied about raising taxes. Where is the outrage about President Clinton and Hillary with their lies?

I love Ann Coulter. Left wing liberals say a lot worse and always get away with it.

Many of the hateful comments posted here are far more vulgar, vile and offensive than Coulter's remarks. I am constantly astonished at the inability of the left to recognize their own hypocrisy when it comes to intolerance and name calling.
