FIRE’s Case at URI Hits the Media

By April 20, 2007

FIRE’s defense of the College Republicans at the University of Rhode Island (URI) has gained the attention of local and national media, including a front-and-center spot on today’s homepage of FOXNews.com. The accompanying article by Melissa Drosjack explores our fight for the College Republicans’ right to advertise a satirical “scholarship,” despite the Student Senate’s demand for an apology. Today’s issue of The Boston Globe also ran a story from the Associated Press that highlighted our efforts at URI.
 
Also, Torch readers can listen online this Monday at 8:10 a.m. Eastern for a live radio interview with FIRE’s own Robert Shibley on Hot Talk with Andy Barnett on Newstalk 1450 KNSI. Robert will discuss the state of affairs at URI, along with other recent FIRE cases.
