Coulter Dropped By Tennessee Paper

The Mountain Press has issued a statement announcing that they will no longer run Ann Coulter's column.
"When we agree to buy a syndicated column we expect the writer to offer responsible, reasoned opinion on national and international issues," Editor Stan Voit said. "Ms. Coulter's column drew an unusual amount of criticism from our readers when we first started running it, but we felt she was a nationally known writer offering her opinions in her own style. However we will not continue to publish the columns of someone who uses people as a punch line to get a cheap laugh and who so freely uses an offensive term to describe another human being."
Good for them. Coulter has also lost advertisers from her website, including Verizon, Sallie Mae, and Netbank.

UPDATE: The Oakland Press and the Lancaster New Era have also dropped Coulter.
