Was poking around Greg Sargent's way, and found the transcript from an NBC Nightly News report hammering Ann Coulter. Good for them. But here's what I don't get, and maybe this isn't reflected in the transcript. Her most despicable -- and inflammatory -- writings, the one that Lauer kept coming back to in his interview, did not make its way into the report. It's this one:

These broads are millionaires, lionized on TV and in articles about them, reveling in their status as celebrities and stalked by grief-arazzis. I've never seen people enjoying their husbands' deaths so much.

Ann Coutler goes on to call them "harpies" said that their husbands may have been thinking of divorcing them, and suggests they might also want to pose for Playboy. But it is, of course, the above excerpted that is the most repellant and newsworthy part of the story. Yet I pulled the transcript off Lexis-Nexis (as Media Matters, apparently, did) and could not find reference to that statement. Isn't that odd? Read the whole transcript.
