Fox News Picks Up Dean Story

The election report on Brit Hume’s 6 pm show featured coverage of Dean’s appearance at Dartmouth. The item featured three photographs of the attendees unfurling Confederate flags taken by our own publisher, Michael Ellis, with credit given to the Dartmouth Review.

At a media conference later in the day, Dean refused to answer a question about the appearance of the flags, saying something to the effect of: “Things happen on college campuses. They wouldn’t say who they were or who they represented, so I have no comment.”

UPDATE: The story showed again in the 7 pm hour and again just now. Either they added text or I gleaned more this time around. Apparently “the college is investigating the incident” and “rival campaigns have denied involvement.”
