Was Ann Coulter Lying About The Media Then, Or Is She Lying About It Now?

I’m gonna go with… “always.”

Ann Coulter in her new book Guilty: Liberal “Victims” and Their Assault on America (courtesy of Media Matters):

The most amazing thing liberals have done is create the myth of a compliant right-wing media with Republicans badgering baffled reporters into attacking Democrats. It’s so mad, it’s brilliant. It’s one kind of a lie to say the Holocaust was when the Swedes killed the Jews. But it’s another kind of lie entirely to say the Holocaust was when the Jews killed the Nazis. Liberals have actually neutralized the incredible press orchestration of left-wing propaganda by acting as if they are the victims of the all-powerful Republican National Committee. [Page 110]

Ann Coulter on The Sean Hannity Show, 7/26/05 (original audio file is gone, additional verbiage from DU):

It’s a better Senate than it was then and we have the media now.

If pressed, I suppose Coulter could claim that the media went from totally right-wing propaganda to totally left-wing propaganda in a mere three years.  Or that she said “we have the media now” on Hannity’s show simply to trick us gullible liberals, but that’s kind of a tough sell considering the context (she was arguing that Dubya should nominate a hard-right judge for the Supreme Court).

You screwed up, Ann.  You can’t gloat about how your team controls the media, and then rant and rave about how conservative media bias is all a liberal hoax.
