AT&T pulls ads from Ann Coulter’s Web site

AT&T; Statement – March 6, 2007

“Many of our ad placements — particularly on the Internet — are secured in bulk with placements made by third-party buyers with a goal of trying to reach the broadest audiences possible. We ask our media buyers to avoid sites that might generally be seen as offensive or polarizing to the public, which appears to be the case with this political Web site. Our ads have been withdrawn.”

UPDATE: Many other advertisers have abandoned Coulter. VolvoDriving Liberal at DailyKos has the growing list.
