Fake press release calling for divestment receives statewide media attention

Earlier today, several media outlets came out with coverage of the fake press release sent out last Friday and the subsequent coming clean letter released Tuesday by the student activists that call themselves the Middlebury Dalai Lama Welcoming Committee (DLWC). Most notably, Steve Zind covered it for Vermont Public Radio this morning, quoting multiple members of the group. Seven Days also did an extensive article on the incident. Vermont news website VT Digger also ran a story about it today. Finally, DLWC posted on Powershift’s blog to reach our for support from a wider audience of environmental activists.
