UPDATE: Coulter swings back, calls WorldNetDaily founder a "swine" and "publicity whore"

Media Matters noted Wednesday that WorldNetDaily (WND) had announced the cancellation of right-wing pundit Ann Coulter's keynote speech at the fringe outfit's "Taking America Back National Conference" next month in Miami because Coulter agreed to headline a gathering of gay Republicans.

WND's report on the cancellation of the keynote apparently included details from a private email exchange between Coulter and Farah and that didn't please the right-wing author one bit. As Capitol Hill Blue's Doug Thompson writes (emphasis added):

The homophobic Farah blasted Coulter, saying "there is simply no room (at his conference) for compromisers or for people who accept money from those determined to destroy the moral fabric required for self-governance and liberty."

Coulter fired back at Farah, calling him a "publicity whore" and a "swine" for publishing an email exchange between the two.

Farah, Coulter said in Tweets and emails, "could give less than two shits about the conservative movement as demonstrated by his promotion of the birther nonsense. He's the only allegedly serious conservative pushing the birther thing and for one reason — to get hits on his web site."

Coulter writes a column for WorldNetDaily and said of her planned appearance before the conservative gay conference:

"They hired me to give a speech. So I'm giving a speech. I do it all the time."

Coulter added that she isn't losing any money over Farah's decision to drop her from his conference because he couldn't afford to pay her anyway.

Farah later responded to Coulter defending his role as the reigning Birther King while also saying he was sad to lose her "as a friend" but that he had "no regrets" over dumping her from the WND confab in Miami.
