Pointless

Joe Maguire, a Reuters employee, has written a book on Ann Coulter and her spew titled Brainless: The Lies and Lunacy of Ann Coulter. It looks like he may want to get started on that book career, as he's' been let go from Reuters. No one's saying why, of course, but Reuters has put out a press release emphasizing its "integrity, independence, and freedom from bias."

This is a lie. Not directly targeted at Reuters, but at the media in general. Everything has a bias these days, it seems. Everything. We can't talk about gay men being kept out of the emergency room when their partner has a heart attack because they're not technically family; if we do, then we have to have some person who thinks gay people should have no rights whatsoever to even out. We can't interview Deep Throat without asking for opinion from the men he brought down. For God's sake, we're talking about redefining torture, and few in the press say what torture is and what it isn't. And apparently, a Reuters employee can't point out what even the New York Post has: that Ann Coulter is a hacktastic, flame-baiting, bigoted low-calorie intellectual substitute.

Because God knows, we can't actually plant these goalposts.
