La la la! I Can't Hear You So You're Not There!

Ann Coulter has been banished by NBC, apparently the broadcasting dinosaur finds her offensive (Via Drudge).

Coulter was set to unveil her new book, GUILTY.

One network insider claims it was the book's theme -- a brutal examination of liberal bias in the new era -- that got executives to dis-invite the controversialist.

"We are just not interested in anyone so highly critical of President-elect Obama, right now," a TODAY insider reveals. "It's such a downer. It's just not the time, and it's not what our audience wants, either."
NBC is right on one score: Coulter is certainly not what its audience wants, that audience largely being geriatric liberals who want no one harshing their mellow these precious days as Bush goes out and Obama comes in. CBS and ABC would do no differently.

One good flu epidemic, however, and network news is finished in this country.
