Geraldo Rivera was in front of the Broadway Gates tonight. So was Armin Rosen. When I saw a Fox News producer scouring College Walk for students willing to stand behind Geraldo Rivera during a live episode of Geraldo at Large, my thoughts instantly turned to the mustache. Specifically, I wondered whether and how such […]
After e-mailing most every organization and calling every student leader they could get phone numbers for, Fox has its Columbia pundits set for the next few days. Here’s the list, possibly incomplete and subject to change: TONIGHT at 8:00 PM on the O’Reilly Factor: Columbia College sophomore Alejandra Aponte, arguing in favor of Columbia’s decision […]
The 2006-07 school year has contained multitudes. In fact, it may just be the most eventful year Columbia’s had since… well, the year before. Remember Matthew Fox? The Chung-Diamond “scandal”? “Don’t Be a Pussy”? “Epilogue to Our Crime & Punishment: A Petition“? Bwog certainly does, so step into the Wayback machine – you’re about to […]
Columbia students who stayed tuned after American Idol tonight were rewarded by this Fox 5 news teaser: “The cheating scandal at Columbia – the teacher at the center of the storm, and the tough choice students are being forced to make.” The Fox News affiliate ran a brief story, with both the usual (stock footage […]
Is nothing sacred? Fox News (which one tipster spotted shooting b-roll on campus earlier today) having run through every other permutation of “wild sex” and “Columbia students,” decided to take aim at Bwog’s favorite site at Columbia and possibly ever: www.goaskalice.com, our source of wisdom on everything from dried fruit to dental dams. The host […]
Tipster Bobby Brennan writes: “There’s a sketchy high school senior wandering College Walk in a trenchcoat offering anyone $800 to take the Biology SAT II right now.” Hmm… sound familiar? At this point, we’re convinced Fox News is just setting Columbia students up for an expose. Trenchcoat? You can do better than that, O’Reilly.
Newsflash! Columbia was on Fox again today, for bringing the Iranian Ambassador to the United Nations to speak. A little Bwog inside scoop: he almost went the way of his President, when the Law School withdrew their offer of space. Fortunately for Towards Reconciliation, the Muslim Student Association stepped up by donating pre-reserved space in […]
Fox news has found another skeleton in Columbia’s closet. Fox’ Hannity and Colmes picked up the year-old story of Matt Sanchez, G’ 07, the Marine who was (depending on your politics) harassed or picked on by members of the ISO at the 2005 Activities Day Fair. “They dehumanize people to get their agenda across,” Sanchez […]
Just when you thought the dialogue around Columbia’s sexual atmosphere couldn’t get any worse…Ann Coulter got involved. Today on FOX News, Bwog’s favorite channel, she opined (click for video!) on the Daily News “report” “exposing” our “creepy” carnal persuits. Money quotes: “I really think you should get a picture of some of these [S&M] clubs and a […]
Can’t get enough of them Republicans: Chris “one day I’ll be on them all” Kulawik and protester Monique Dols appeared tonight on Fox’s Heartland with John Kasich. The show will air again at 1:00 AM. A few more news items: None of the protesters Bwog has found has yet been contacted by Public Safety regarding […]
The quality of these is worse than ever, but the sound works — you can hear every attempted objection, interrupted stutter, swallowed point, and of course, the O’Reilly bellow. Avi Zenilman of The Blue and White, Chris Kulawik of the Republicans, and protest organizers Eva Fortes and Monique Dols took on the Fox Network tonight. […]
Eva Fortes, C ’09, is the woman of the hour–along with Monique Dols, she took on Hannity and Colmes on very short notice. The bad news? They didn’t let the girls tell their story. The good news? Bwog interviewed Fortes–who started the anti-Minutemen facebook group and penned an article in today’s Spec–shortly before she went […]
Chris Kulawik’s cheerful visage graced Fox News’ Hannity and Colmes this evening. While expressing shame at being a member of the Columbia community, he appeared the picture of moderation next to Minuteman Founder Jim Gilchrist, who called protesters the “anarcho-fascists” and the “21st century KKK,” noting that he would have given the protesters a “Minuteman […]
If you happened to be watching Fox News this morning at 8:15 AM–because that’s how Bwog likes to wake up–you might have seen a group of students with big signs behind the cameras. And if you looked closely enough, you would have seen a couple of Columbia faces: Dems member Nathan Morgante, CC ’09, and […]
