As the controversy moved into its third day, Bennish got some advice from an unlikely source - embattled University of Colorado professor Ward Churchill, under fire on a number of fronts and the subject of an ongoing investigation by a school committee."Don't come out and just start talking." Obviously Ward is joking. He's done that with great success his whole career.
According to Lane - who also represents Churchill - the CU professor told Bennish that in dealing with reporters "make sure you know exactly what you're going to say before you say it; don't come out and just start talking."
Update: Why does the reporter call Churchill an "unlikely source?" Pirate Ballerina, for one, points out that Bennish is just another "little Wardo," and so an apt pupil for the big guy.
