Which is more laughable?

John Edwards calling someone a she-devil and then said the she-devil in question and other assorted devils like her engage in hateful language without, apparently, recognizing that some people might consider it a tad hateful to be called a devil....

"We know these people. We know their game plan. They're going to attack us personally," Edwards said. "They attacked Elizabeth personally, because she stood up to that she-devil Ann Coulter. … I should not have name-called. But the truth is -- forget the names -- people like Ann Coulter, they engage in hateful language."

....or ABC intentionally distorting the story to make it appear that Edwards was right in his hateful labeling?

In June, Coulter went on ABC's "Good Morning America" and said she had learned her lesson after being blasted for suggesting in a joke before the Conservative Political Action Conference that Edwards was a "faggot." "If I'm gonna say anything about John Edwards in the future, I'll just wish he had been killed in a terrorist assassination plot," Coulter said.

Fortunately an astute reader at the ABC blog jumped on this blatant bias inaccuracy in the very first comment.

You conveniently forgot to add that Coulter's comment was mocking a comment by Bill Maher who said that he thought it would be good if Vice President Cheney was killed in a trip to Afghanistan. His comment was at the same time as Coulters' "faggot" comment but received little to no coverage. The Edwards camp took her comment on "Good Morning America" out of context and placed it on their website.

From Hot Air we're reminded of John lecturing us on not tolerating the sort of thing he's engaging in presumably just to shake the piggybanks of what's left of his support.
