Ann Coulter, Howard Kurtz and David Carr

Monday, June 12, 2006  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

The WaPo’s Howard Kurtz and the New York Times’ David Carr both consider Ann Coulter today.

Kurtz asks:

Is it time for the media to stop lavishing attention on Ann Coulter?

The answer is “yes.”

Carr concludes:

You can accuse her of cynicism all you want, but the fact that she is one of the leading political writers of our age says something about the rest of us.

But Mr. Carr doesn’t add that it says the same thing as does the status of DailyKos and Frank Rich.

Extreme commentary, like extreme sports, has an audience. MSM has profited from, and credentialed, both.
