Conservative political analyst, lawyer and best-selling author Ann Coulter will deliver a talk titled “Liberal Lies About the American Right” at 11 a.m. March 3 in Graham Chapel.
Coulter is known for her sharp criticism of the American liberal perspective. Through her books and television appearances, she has become one of the most popular and best-known defenders of the American conservative philosophy.
All three of her books have enjoyed long stays on The New York Times best-seller list.
The first, High Crimes and Misdemeanors: The Case Against Bill Clinton (1998), was widely praised by prominent conservatives including George Will and Robert Bork, and widely used by editorial writers during the Clinton impeachment trial.
In Slander: Liberal Lies About the American Right (2002), Coulter provides examples of media abuse, liberal manipulation and Democratic conspiracies against Republicans.
Treason: Liberal Treachery From the Cold War to the War on Terrorism (2003) contends that liberals have stood with the enemies of American interests in every major crisis during the past 60 years of its history.
A major broadcast media figure, Coulter has been featured on a variety of programs, including ABC’s This Week, NBC’s Today and CNN’s Larry King Live, Hannity and Colmes and The O’Reilly Factor.
In addition, she writes a column for Universal Press Syndicate and is the legal correspondent for Human Events magazine.
A graduate of Cornell University and the University of Michigan Law School, Coulter has worked as an attorney for the Center for Individual Rights, a conservative public-interest law firm dedicated to the defense of individual rights with particular emphasis on freedom of speech, civil rights and the free exercise of religion.
In addition, she has served as legal counsel for the Senate Judiciary Committee, where she worked with then-Sen. Spencer Abraham. She has also practiced corporate law and has clerked for Judge Pasco Bowman II of the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.
