In his column about fighting for the other side (“In the News,” June/July 2002), Kevin Baker’s use of a term like right-wing pundit seems to justify Ann Coulter’s charge, in her bestseller Slander , that such statements are not intended to be informative but to make their targets hurt. I’d be interested to know how many times Kevin Baker has used the term left-wing pundit in previous writings.
