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 Ã¢â‚¬â€œ 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 Ã¢â‚¬Å“I hate Ann Coulter!Ã¢â‚¬?, written by an author who refuses to give his full name, but instead goes by Ã¢â‚¬Å“UnanimousÃ¢â‚¬?.
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 youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢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.Ã¢â‚¬?cheap attentionÃ¢â‚¬?)
ThatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s the author who wants to be simply known as Ã¢â‚¬Å“unanimousÃ¢â‚¬?Ã¢â‚¬Â¦.HeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s written a new book Ã¢â‚¬Å“I Hate Ann CoulterÃ¢â‚¬?, about the acerbic conservative commentator known for creating all sorts of controversy.
