We were out for the evening, but apparently tonight's Hannity and Colmes featured the handiwork of Morton Blackwell - a student graduate of [dun, dun, duuuun...] The Leadership Institute.
How do I know? Because I masochistically signed up for the LI newsletter.
They sent out an email telling subscribers to watch tonight as another LI-trained pseudo-journalist seeks sympathy in the arms of the right-wing spin machine as she refuses to accept the consequences of her own unethical journalistic practices.

Dear Friend of the Leadership Institute,
Tonight, Thursday, May 19, Sean Hannity plans to feature a college student member of one of LI's 439 active conservative student groups in our Campus Leadership Program. You can see her on "Hannity and Colmes" at 9:00 pm EST.
Once again, leftist professors and college administrators are attacking a conservative student days before graduation.
This travesty of justice is occurring at Wells College in upstate New York.
Nicole Krogman, wrote an article for Onyx, a campus newspaper at Wells College. Nicole used some of the language from this article in another article she wrote in the Cornell American, where she works as an editor.
Nicole told my staff that school officials "suspended" her from the school. They charged her with plagiarism for the absurd reason that she did not cite herself as the author of the article that she wrote for the Cornell American.
Nicole is a senior at Wells College. She expected to graduate this month. Now she can't. Wells College does not graduate students in the winter. As a result of the attacks by the left, she cannot graduate until next spring.
Even worse, because the school forced her out of her classes so late in the semester, she cannot get any portion of her tuition refunded. What malicious people you and I are fighting on campus.
Your LI staff are working closely with Nicole to help her in effective ways.
You are encouraged to tune into "Hannity and Colmes" tonight, Thursday, May 19, at 9:00 pm EST and see another outrageous example of how the left persecutes conservatives on campus.
Morton C. Blackwell
