Today, The Daily Tar Heel encouraged University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill (UNC) students to attend a taping of Stossel, John Stossel’s show on the FOX Business Network, which will be held on campus at 2 p.m. in the Great Hall of the Student Union, hosted by the UNC Young Americans for Liberty. FIRE Senior Vice President Robert Shibley will be a guest on the program, discussing FIRE’s recent victory at nearby North Carolina State University and other campus free speech issues.
The Daily Tar Heel piece also features a great quote from former FIRE intern David Deerson, one of the student organizers of the event, who says, "FIRE’s mission is crucial, as freedom of expression is not only constitutionally guaranteed, but educationally vital." Thanks for the kind words, David!
The Stossel episode featuring Robert is scheduled to air on the FOX Business Network next Thursday, September 27, at 9 p.m. Eastern. We’ll have reminders to tune in on The Torch and on FIRE’s Facebook and Twitter pages next week.
