Dozens of alumni also petitioned Northwestern and Medill, saying:

"We are writing to request a public explanation of the facts surrounding the apparent removal of Professor Protess. In particular, we would like to know the reasons for (his) removal, and your explanation of why this action was necessary and is in the best interests of Medill and Northwestern."

Former students like Evan Benn, now a St. Louis Post-Dispatch reporter called Protess' class "life-changing." Another, Maurice Possley, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, said he was "incredibly professional." Paul Ciolino added:

"If you look at this thing 30 to 40 years from now, Protess will be a beloved figure that they'll be building statues about."

The Northwestern Faculty Senate passed a motion expressing "deep concern" over the way Protess was treated.

Former Medill Dean (1989 - 1996), now Columbia University Journalism Professor, Michael Janeway said he zealously pursued a cause, one "you could not question."

On June 19, New York Times writers David Carr and John Schwartz headlined, "A Watchdog Professor, Now Defending Himself," saying:

Renown Journalism Professor Protess "spent three decades fighting to prove the innocence of others has been locked in a battle to do the same for himself. It hasn't gone as well."
