Comprehensive Media Coverage Essential to FIRE Victory at the University of Delaware

By November 2, 2007

Press coverage of the reeducation program at the University of Delaware (UD) has been astounding. Check out FIRE’s events page and look at the events over just the last few days. Yesterday, Greg appeared on CNN Headline News’ Glenn Beck show, FOX News Channel’s Hannity & Colmes, and this morning he was on America’s Newsroom. FIRE staffers have appeared in numerous radio interviews, and print coverage has also been extensive, including a front page article in the Philadelphia Inquirer and an excellent editorial in The News Journal.
 
The blogosphere has been ablaze with links to the UD website where the documents used to be (they’re still available on the FIRE website). Today, All American Blogger posted an interview via podcast with Greg. Over the last few days, HotAir, Instapundit, and many others contributed excellent analysis, research, and public exposure to combat the UD program’s apologists. Thank you all very much.
 
At FIRE, we agree with Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis that “sunlight is the best disinfectant.” The media coverage of the University of Delaware case proves this axiom true once again. As HotAir noted, “The combination of FIRE + blogs proved to be too much for the University of Delaware.”
 
Stay tuned, because there’s more to come. This evening at 7:15 p.m. (ET) Greg will appear on the Frank Pastore Show on 99.5 FM KKLA in Glendale, California. Tomorrow morning at 8:15 a.m. (ET) Emily will appear on FOX & Friends, and Monday night at 9 p.m. (ET) Greg will appear on The O’Reilly Factor.
