Coulter example wrong[edit]

Whatever one might think of her, Coulter [in what is quoted] obviously doesn't say Failed to parse (PNG conversion failed; check for correct installation of latex and dvipng (or dvips + gs + convert)): P(A|B) = P(B|A) , so it's embarrassingly wrong to take her statement as an example.--- (talk) 11:36, 19 August 2013 (UTC)

Strictly speaking you're correct but the 'Maybe' is the giveaway and why this says 'implied'. Coulter, while covering her back with the 'maybe' is letting confusion of the inverse imply that all Muslim's are terrorists. The dog whistle is quite clear.
