Tim McGuire right about the need to rally behind the Medill Innocence Project and against Cook County prosecutors

Tim McGuire, former editor of the Minneapolis Star Tribune, has written a call to arms over the decision by Cook County prosecutors to go after the Medill Innocence Project. His words are definitely worth reading. I'm with him. This is a case where the "mainstream media" needs to stand behind the students at Northwestern and their professor, David Protess, whom I was privileged to get to know when I was a graduate student there in the early '80s.
