Coulter, Harry Take Each Other On
This image taken from CCTV obtained by Associated Press video shows Luka Rocco Magnotta speaking to Kadir Anlayisli, a cafe worker who recognized him, in the Internet cafe in the district of Neukoelln in Berlin, Germany, Monday, June 4, 2012. "I looked at him and thought I knew him from somewhere, because I read newspapers every day," Anlayisli said. Luka Rocco Magnotta was apprehended on Monday in an Internet cafe in Berlin after an employee there recognized him and alerted police, Berlin police spokeswoman Kerstin Ziesmer said.

In her latest book, "Guilty: Liberal 'Victims' and Their Assault on America," the conservative firebrand stirs up controversy again, contending that liberals in America try to play victim when really, they're the bullies.
While she's at it, she points fingers at what she calls the liberal media.
"(The book is) basically about how victimhood is rewarded and everyone wants to be a victim," Coulter told CBS News. "It's about the rewards and praise you get for being a victim and the way liberals use victimhood and they oppress others."
At one point in "Guilty," Coulter remarks about an interview of Sen. Ted Kennedy by Early Show co-anchor Harry Smith in which Smith asks Kennedy if Barack Obama is at increased risk of being assassinated because he's African American. She dismisses the notion, saying presidential assassinations have been the work of left-wingers or people with no political leanings at all. She said conservatives Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and President George Bush are more likely targets of an assassination than the president-elect.
Coulter and Smith met face-to-face on The Early Show Tuesday, and didn't mince words about that issue or anything else.
Among other things, Coulter contended that liberals are at fault for the skyrocketing rate of out-of-wedlock births in the U.S.
Smith said, in one context, Coulter is a whiner, and accused Coulter of doing the very thing she claims liberals do: playing the victim.
