7 Papers Have Dropped Coulter - 2 NV Papers Have Not

Yesterday, I wrote about the fact that both the Las Vegas Review Journal and the Elko Daily Free Press publish dumbpundit Ann Coulter's column.

Also yesterday, the count of papers who have dropped dumbpundit's column was at four. Today it is at seven and it's likely more are to follow.

When will the Las Vegas Review Journal and the Elko Daily Free Press follow suit? You can do something about it by e-mailing the editors:

Las Vegas Review Journal: John Kerr (Ed.) - jkerr@reviewjournal.com

Elko Daily Free Press: Jeffry Mullins (Ed.) - editor@elkodaily.com

Should you have the impression that writing to the editors won't help, than read what the editor of The Sanford Herald, Billy Ligget, has to say:
Even before March 2, editing Coulter "had become a task" because of her periodic inflammatory language, according to Liggett. "We kept having to pick and choose what we could or couldn't run," he said.

Liggett added that the Herald since last Friday has received some e-mails from Sanford-area residents criticizing Coulter. "We care about what our readers think," said Liggett.

The Herald also received more than 1,000 e-mails criticizing Coulter during the past two days from people who saw the paper listed as a client of the columnist on the liberal MediaMatters.org site. Liggett said about 800 of those e-mails were very similar, but about 200 others were written in a more personalized way.
