Fox removes Coulter column with McCain reference
NEW YORK — The Fox Nation website has removed a column by conservative commentator Ann Coulter because it had a reference to killing the daughter of Sen. John McCain.
Fox said Thursday that the post was removed because of the reference.
It had been posted Wednesday. Coulter wrote about how MSNBC’s Martin Bashir suggested Republican senators wouldn’t support stronger gun control legislation until a member of their family was killed. She wrote: “Let’s start with Meghan McCain!”
McCain tweeted on Thursday that she “couldn’t imagine living a life that seems so void of love, compassion and perspective.”
Her mother, Cindy McCain, tweeted that “Ann Coulter needs to get a life!”

LONDON — Angelina Jolie has brought her celebrity wattage to London to back a favorite cause: fighting sexual violence in military conflicts. She has joined British Foreign Secretary William Hague in announcing $36 million in additional funding from G-8 foreign ministers for the subject.
Hague said the ministers who were meeting Thursday in London also made the “historic” declaration that rape and serious sexual violence in conflicts constitute war crimes and grave breaches of the Geneva Conventions. Jolie — a special envoy for the U.N. High Commission on Refugees — welcomed the “long-overdue stand” on sexual violence.
