The Ledger (Lakeland, Florida) News Coverage of Speech to Be Limited. When Sean Hannity, the Fox Network commentator, speaks at Southeastern University Friday night, his words won’t reach a wide audience. The news media will be allowed to watch and take pictures of the first few minutes of Hannity’s hourlong speech. After 10 minutes, all members of the media will be escorted out of the special section in which they will be kept and taken outside the chapel so that Hannity can continue his speech to the audience.
I just got email from someone who’s thinking about covering this himself via his blog. My response: “Go for it.”
I’m hoping several bloggers attend, in fact. These kinds of restrictions are ridiculous in the age of citizen media, and even Hannity and his network ought to know that.
