Lauer on Coulter: A “Case By Case Basis”

Will Ann Coulter continue to be invited to appear on Today, in the aftermath of her “We [Christians] just want Jews to be perfected” comments last week on CNBC’s The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch?

Matt Lauer tells TVNewser, “I think we’re going to make that decision on a case by case basis. I mean, if there’s something in the news that she has a vital view on, then I think we would consider having her back on.

“In terms of having her back on just to be outrageous, that probably wouldn’t happen. She’s a tough call, because you have to kind of walk a fine line. She is someone that a lot of people find outrageous, and as a result, don’t want to hear her voice. And yet she does reach a lot of people, and she gets people to react. At some point you have to make a decision whether it’s quality or quantity or whether it’s just volume or quality. And I think we should make that on a case by case basis.”
