Someone’s act is getting tired:
The problem is her worst lines, which make me – and many others – absolutely cringe. Because of her repetitive, tasteless “jokes” about minority groups, we have dropped her column from The Press-Enterprise.
We brought Coulter aboard last month as one of 13 fresh voices; the basic idea was to add vitality and diversity to our pages. Coulter joined the mix because several of our editors liked her vigor and candor even if we didn’t necessarily agree with her views. Her sample columns did not contain offensive material, and we expected her writing to meet a more professional standard. We took a chance on a firebrand writer, and it didn’t work. We’re not afraid to admit our mistake, and fix it.
