Washington Free Beacon reporter Aaron Sibarium appeared Sunday on Fox News and shared his blunt response to activist students at Stanford Law School who have demanded their names be removed from his reporting.
“No way,” Sibarium recalled telling organizers of a protest that prevented federal circuit court judge Kyle Duncan from speaking at a Stanford Federalist Society event earlier this month. “We’re not going to do that.”
“They didn’t just shout down a sitting federal judge,” Sibarium explained to Fox & Friends Weekend co-host Will Cain. “They also posted the names and faces of … every [Federalist Society] board member who helped invited him … around the school in a concerted effort to shame their peers and pressure them out of hosting the event. And then those exact same students emailed me to say, ‘Oh, by naming us in the story, you’re ginning up harassment.’ So, it’s really quite hypocritical.”
Last week, Lily Bou contacted the Free Beacon to claim that Sibarium had no right to quote her and other board members of Stanford’s chapter of the National Lawyers Guild—which helped organize the protest against Duncan—praising the protest as “Stanford Law School at its best.” Another student, Mary Cate Hickman, insisted the Free Beacon “anonymize” footage of a subsequent protest of Stanford Law School dean Jenny Martinez after she issued an apology to Duncan.
“It’s quite concerning because a key precondition for the rule of law is that the law applies equally to everyone. I mean, that’s what the law is. And yet, these students seem to think that the rules don’t apply to them,” Sibarium said on Fox News. “Pretty soon, I think, that double standard is going to be more mainstream among lawyers and judges because these people are going to graduate to become high-powered lawyers and judges.”
