Though Cloud noted that Coulter's defense of her Earnhardt mistake was, itself, also untrue, he didn't take issue with her contention that "liberals" have identified only one mistake in her writing. This is an obvious falsehood; liberals and others have identified many, many errors of fact in Coulter's writing, as a search of Media Matters for America, Spinsanity.org, or countless other resources would reveal.
But Cloud deems Coulter mostly accurate: "Coulter has a reputation for carelessness with facts, and if you Google the words 'Ann Coulter lies,' you will drown in results. But I didn't find many outright Coulter errors."
One would have hoped that the author of a 5,800-word Time magazine cover story would go beyond performing a simple Google search; Nexis would be a good start. But even Cloud's simple Google search should have been enough to dispel the notion that it's difficult to find "outright Coulter errors." The fourth "hit" that Cloud's Google search yields is a review of Coulter's Slander on the nonpartisan Spinsanity.org website, which revealed Coulter to have erred about:
* The number of articles the New York Times printed about "Selma" over a six-year period;
* The frequency of the Times' use of the phrase "moderate Republican" vs. that of "liberal Republican"; and
* Former Vice President Al Gore's claim to have been the inspiration for the book Love Story.
Likewise, a quick look at just the first three of 11 pages of search results for "Coulter" at Media Matters finds examples of Coulter lying or being wrong about:
* The New York Times "outing" gays (the people mentioned in the article in question were already "out") and ignoring former atheist William Murray's conversion to Christianity (the paper didn't ignore it; it covered it.)
* Gary Hart, Bill Clinton, and John Kerry supposedly running for president "under invented names" (they didn't);
* The Bush administration's refusal to reimburse the District of Columbia for costs incurred during Bush's inauguration;
* Long-discredited allegations that President Clinton "sold burial plots in Arlington National Cemetery."
In short: Coulter is wrong very, very often, and Cloud's suggestion to the contrary is simply bizarre.
