Bullying article gets Comedy Central spotlight


Thursday, Nov. 10 — Yes, that really was a City Pulse clip on last night's "The Colbert Report" episode on Comedy Central: The "Brushfire over bullying" story was shown in Stephen Colbert's introduction to a segment on the controversy over Michigan's anti-bullying legislation and Republican lawmakers' attempts to modify the language in the bill. The article in the current edition was used as a jumping-off point for its look
at the measure that passed the state Senate last week with a provision that
protected “statements of a sincerely held religious belief or moral conviction.”

Here is the video link: The segment begins at approximately the 4:15 mark.

The show airs again
at 6:30 tonight.
