This is from an interview of WaPo’s Chris Cillizza by MSNBC’s Contessa Brewer. The video picks up with Brewer giving a bit of context because she wouldn’t want Ann Coulter to call her names too.
Brewer then states: “The point though is if Elizabeth Edwards really wanted to elevate the level of political discourse, woman to woman, you call up and say heh will you [Ann Coulter] go have lunch with me there’s something I want to talk to you about.”
And finally she asks Cillizza “And do you think the public really wants polite discourse? I mean aren’t we all much more fascinated by the nastiness that goes back and forth?”
Cillizza wholeheartedly agrees to Brewer’s points.
Our media in all its glory…
