Bishop Roger Foys still hasn’t apologized to the Covington students, but he is swinging into action:
According to a source at the school, the Bishop of Covington has told the school administration that he doesn’t want the kids doing any more interviews. The school faculty is also reportedly worried about the students’ safety.
The warning reportedly came after two Covington students appeared on Fox & Friends, where they defended their conduct in D.C. following the March for Life on Friday. Fox & Friends co-host Steve Doocy stated on-air that the kids, falsely accused of taunting Native American activist Nathan Phillips based on selectively clipped video footage, had been exonerated by longer videos of the incident.
The faculty did not specify to the students that they would be punished if they continued to defend themselves in the media, but the students reportedly wish to cooperate nonetheless.

The simplest way to explain the behavior of any bureaucratic organization is to assume that it is controlled by a cabal of its enemies.
