Your right-wing media at work.

Of course, it's slightly more accurate that they're just trying to sell themselves - Ann Coulter is a popular and famous figure, so you write about her and put her on the cover if possible. Elementary marketing. Still though, what do you think the reaction would be if Al Franken said that Tim McVeigh should have targeted, say, a church? Or an army base? And then stood by it when challenged on it? He seriously, literally would probably not be alive right now.

But say that 168 journalists and reporters at a mainstream, relatively respected newspaper should have been murdered, on the 10-year anniversary of the real thing no less... and it's no impediment to getting a feature article in a leading magazine in the "liberal" media.
