    Drudge: NBC Bans Ann Coulter For Life (Updated with VIDEO)

    By Tommy Christopher

    Wow, yet another similarity between Ann Coulter and Pete Rose.

    Drudge is reporting that NBC scrapped a Coulter appearance at the last minute, and that the network has banned her from its air for life:

    The nation's top selling conservative author has been banned from appearing on NBC, insiders tell the DRUDGE REPORT.

    "We are just not going to have her on any more, it's over," a top network source explains.

    But a second top suit strongly denies there is any "Coulter ban".

    I hate to pat myself on the back, but it looks like my headline from yesterday was dead-on. While Coulter's de-fanged fashion critique was a sobering omen for the right-wing press, the fact that even that got her banned from NBC portends a rough 8 years.

    I find it curious that NBC stuck with Coulter through "faggot" jokes and 9/11 widow-trashing, but has taken a stand now. I also wonder if NBC will stick with the ban even if Coulter thinkds up a cheesy but popular game show premise.

    I've also been told by a close friend that Coulter is a delight in person, corroborating Matt Lewis' description. I'm also told that Hannibal Lecter threw a hell of a dinner party.

    Drudge goes on to say that others at NBC, including Joe Scarborough, are opposing the ban. I say that it is hypocritical for NBC to exploit Coulter when the political winds blow her way, but to "find their outrage" now that Obama is in office.

    UPDATE (8:39 am): Ann Coulter appears on CBS's The Early Show. Video is here (below the story on the above link)

    NBC's mistake was letting her on the air in the first place.

    That was the worst first-half-hour segment in the history of Today.

    Yeah, let's make fun of the future president by using his middle name!!!

    I might re-watch it, but I think she touches her hair when she outright knowingly lies.

    You have to think her schtick is starting to sour to most people.
