Reactions to Churchill firing

Backers decry decision to dismiss"I want to be clear," said Tom Mayer, a CU sociology professor. "This is a political firing with academic camouflage.

"I believe the people who voted (to dismiss Churchill) are the same people who would have voted against Socrates, Galileo . . . and anyone else with an unpopular point of view."
Churchill fueled perfect media stormKHOW hosts Dan Caplis and Craig Silverman are fully invested in the story and broadcast live Tuesday from the University of Colorado. Caplis cut short a vacation to be able to broadcast the firing of Churchill.

"This is the people's victory, and talk radio played a part in it. But that's what we're here for," Caplis said. "We shouldn't be bragging about it--we just did our job. If we don't do our job, bad guys like Churchill win."
