I didn’t have a great deal of time to hang around this morning, but as I was leaving class on my way to work, I passed by the promised counter-protest. There was a also a media feeding-frenzy; I spotted reporters and crews from CNN, FOX, NBC, ABC, CBS, Telemundo, and various radio and print outlets. I snapped a couple of pictures on my way through.
Notably, I didn’t actually see any of the College Republicans themselves. Most of the attention seemed to be centered around the protesters. I haven’t seen any media reports yet, though. I’m going to thow on CNN in a second and see what shows up.
Edit 1805hrs ET: I haven’t had access to a TV for most of the day, so I haven’t been able to look at the media coverage. There’s a story on bbc.co.uk, though, and assorted articles via a Google news search for a pretty generic “NYU” query. The photos to the left were picked up by NowPublic, and Gothamist. I’ll try and catch the evening news later on.
