Coulter’s Love-Hate Bond With NYT

GOP pundit and author Ann Coulter was recently interviewed on the mean streets of Washington. Or was it mean Coulter interviewed on the streets of Washington?

The Daily Caller‘s Ginny Thomas interviewed her, but you won’t see Ginny on camera or even hear her pose the questions. It’s Coulter, Coulter and more Coulter rallying on about her love-hate relationship with MSNBC and NYT. She hates it.  She loves it. She loves Matt Drudge and she hates the NYT some more: “The NYT is a great newspaper besides getting the enemy playbook delivered to my door every morning. … You put that aside, and they really are great reporters. It’s frustrating to those of us who like the informative parts of the New York Times.”

Her heroes include FNC’s Brit Hume and Juan Williams and comedian Dennis Miller.

The interview is not as out there as Coulter can go, but still decent. But even The Daily Caller doesn’t give it top billing. In the morning roundup, it’s #10 on their list of priority reads/watches. That’s three slots before news of Elizabeth Olson allegedly turning down a role in a possible “Sex and the City” film.

Daily Caller and ATR Bask in Breitbart

Apparently Ann Coulter isn’t the only one who sends her book covers to Matt Drudge for approval.

Last night, at a party for Andrew Breitbart‘s new book “Righteous Indignation” hosted by The Daily Caller and Americans for Tax Reform, Breitbart admitted to doing the same.

Drudge told Breitbart he looked “like [he] went 10 rounds and won.” He also sought the advice of former Daily Caller columnist S.E. Cupp of GlennBeck.com, who said, “You look like Rip Torn when he got caught with his D.U.I.”

In brief speeches at the soiree, ATR’s Chris Butler said the book was “wonderful” and that he’d “devoured it,” while Daily Caller Editor-in-Chief Tucker Carlson called the night an “opportunity to bask in the glory of Andrew Breitbart.”

Breitbart then took the mic. Some of the best quotes:

  • After cursing a few times: “My enemies are those who wouldn’t allow these expletives at a conservative party.” Carlson shouted “Fuck yeah!”
  • “I know you’re supposed to be polite in this town.”
  • MSNBC’s Martin Bashir “planted the seed of suicide in Michael Jackson‘s head.”

The party, at ATR’s downtown office, featured an open bar and free copies of Breitbart’s book, which he signed: “Fight the man!”

Among the hundreds of guests: Politico‘s Mike Allen, HuffPost‘s Jon Ward, Weekly Standard‘s Stephen F. Hayes, Republican pollster and CNN contributor Kellyanne Conway, NMS’ and formerly Washington Examiner‘s J.P. Freire, Cullen Murphy of the Atlantic, Human EventsJason Mattera, Tony Blankley, CNN contributor Amy Holmes, recent Daily Caller hires Ginny Thomas and Publicist Kurt Bardella, ATR’s Grover Norquist, and Washington Examiner‘s Byron York, Tim Carney, and “Yeas & Nays” columnist Nikki Schwab. Also in attendance were TWT’s Liz Glover and Wonkette‘s Riley Waggaman, who were hoping to speak with Breitbart about the recent Wonkette controversy over a story the site published mocking Trig Palin.

We hope they made it home safely.

UPDATE: Waggaman emailed to clarify that Glover was there representing TWT, not Wonkette, and that her editors had other questions for her to ask Breitbart. He also said he had no plan to ask Breitbart about the Wonkette story. “When I am at an event with Breitbart, my primary objective is to get a silly photo with him, or maybe even let him squeeze my ass,” he wrote.
