Conservative columnist Ann Coulter appeared on "Fox & Friends" Wednesday to clarify her previous comments to Newsmax that MSNBC, not Fox News, only features weak conservative guests. She would like the liberal-leaning network to book her on one of their shows.

Coulter first talked to Newsmax's Steve Malzberg to point out that MSNBC hosts, particularly Ed Schultz and Rachel Maddow, "will not put on conservatives who can put two sentences together." But in the banter, it was a bit confusing as to which network she was referring.

"Any casual viewer of MSNBC can see it's a totally closed set, which is why they get crazier and crazier in their conspiracy theories," Coulter told Malzberg. "There's no one at MSNBC to say 'you people are out of your minds' because the only conservatives they invite on are Todd Harris and Meghan McCain."

In an email to NewsBusters last week, Coulter continued her evaluation of MSNBC.

"These MSNBC hosts like Rachel and Ed love posing as macho Republican-slayers, with Rachel repeatedly begging Republican senators to please, please, please come on her show (because she's such a formidable debater, you see), and now Schultz boasting that Republicans are terrified of him! We quake in our boots," Coulter wrote.

"I've been begging to come on their shows for years now, but they're all apparently too afraid of a 99 lb girl. (Or any conservative who can put 2 sentences together — Hey! Somebody get Todd Harris on the line!)"

Coulter is hardly the only MSNBC critic. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who has appeared numerous times on the network since taking office, criticized MSNBC Sunday for being a "partisan network" in the middle of a feeding frenzy with his current controversies.

"There is a difference between treating this matter seriously and seeking out the truth and irresponsibly using hearsay and conjecture without confirming the facts," Colin Reed, a spokesman for Mr. Christie, said Sunday, according to The New York Times.

"Morning Joe" co-host Mika Brzezinski said she disagreed and that covering the current controversies in Christie's administration was fair game.

"I was a little surprised when he took a jab at us," Brzezinski said Sunday, per the Times. "I don’t think it’s legitimate to say this is a partisan attack,” she added. “I think this is a very real story, with legs."

Christie's administration has been fighting allegations that it closed the New Jersey end of the George Washington Bridge last year to punish the Fort Lee, N.J., mayor for not supporting Christie's re-election bid. Last week, Hoboken, N.J., Mayor Dawn Zimmer charged that Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno threatened to stall Superstorm Sandy relief funds if she didn't sign on the real estate development project Christie favored. Guadagno has denied the claim.
