Ward offers advice

The Overland High School geography teacher who made statements "comparing President Bush to Adolf Hitler and questioning everything from U.S. drug and foreign policy to capitalism and terrorism," got some advice yesterday on dealing with the media from another heroic advocate of free speech--Ward "Little Eichmanns" Churchill. The Rocky:
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.

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."
"Don't come out and just start talking." Obviously Ward is joking. He's done that with great success his whole career.

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.
