Author of humorous new book on Ann Coulter speaks with WMNF by Mitch E. Perry10/27/06
Last week, conservative commentator Ann Coulter came to Tampa, and took home a quick $35,000 for giving a speech at the University of South Florida â€“ a speech that included hundreds of people walking out to show their disgust at her at times vitriolic comments.
Now comes a new humorous attack on Coulter in the form of a book called â€œI hate Ann Coulter!â€?, written by an author who refuses to give his full name, but instead goes by â€œUnanimousâ€?.
However , published reports say that the writer is actually Joe Maquire, who was soon fired from his job at Reuters after it was discovered that he wrote the book. As youâ€™ll hear in the interview, Maquire refuses to acknowledge his name in promotion of the book. We began it on a serious note, asking him about charges that have surfaced recently that Ann Coulter has plagiarized other writings in some of her recent books, (roll tape#1 o.q.â€?cheap attentionâ€?)
Thatâ€™s the author who wants to be simply known as â€œunanimousâ€?â€¦.Heâ€™s written a new book â€œI Hate Ann Coulterâ€?, about the acerbic conservative commentator known for creating all sorts of controversy.
