Ann Coulter – Can The Left Come Up With One True Story?

April 9, 2015

Ann Coulter’s new column cuts through the progressive narrative like a knife…

Can The Left Come Up With One True Story?

From the Duke lacrosse team, the Columbia mattress girl and the University of Virginia, the left has not been able to produce one actual rape on a college campus. It’s beginning to look as if the rape of the Sabine women never happened, either. Someone’s going to have to go back and investigate.

The big finale to the latest college rape fable, Rolling Stone’s whimsical “A Rape on Campus,” about a fraternity gang rape at the University of Virginia that never happened, is the Columbia Journalism Review’s “investigation” of the story, released Sunday night. It’s more of a house of mirrors than a finale, inasmuch as CJR’s report is so preposterous that it demands its own investigation.

The CJR treats “reporting” as if it is some sort of learned craft, requiring years of study, as opposed to basic common sense. For example, if someone has an incredible story that he’s dying for you to publicize, but loses interest every time you try to confirm any of the facts, a normal person would say: Oh, that’s because it’s probably a lie.

READ IT ALL.

    Essay: “Fifty Shades of Coulter” at http://wp.me/p4jHFp-5E.

    Ann Coulter can be brilliant and she can be abominable – but she doesn’t know the difference!

    Over the last ten weeks, Coulter has reached the pinnacle of literary inspiration and she plumbed the depths of demagoguery. She has spanned the spectrum from laudable to deplorable!

    Coulter current speech title is “Republicans Could Win, If They’d Stop Doing Some of the Things They’re Doing.” Yeah, they could stop listening to Coulter!
