Michael Brown Responds To Anchors Calling His 20 College Acceptances Obnoxious
You would think that the news of a high school senior being accepted into the country’s top 20 schools would solicit well wishes and congratulatory remarks, that was not the case for Michael Brown.
As we reported earlier, DC Fox News anchors called Brown obnoxious for applying to 20 schools and basically shamed him for his excellence. In fact, the anchors, Holly Morris and contributor Sarah Fraser insisted that Brown’s acceptance to so many schools took an opportunity away from other students. Which is not how college admission works. Once a student commits to another school, the spots at the other 19 spaces open up. Students who have been placed on the wait list can now be moved into accepted status.
Since the clip of the anchors going in on Brown has gone viral, he has no doubt heard about it and responded to the comments.
In fact, Brown sat down for an interview with one of the anchors, Holly Morris. But Brown has decided not to let the interview air until Morris and the other anchors apologize. In the meantime, Brown tweeted asking “Where’s the human decency?”
Fraser, the other anchor, said “I have apologized to Michael, and he accepted my apology. Michael’s accomplishments aren’t up for debate. I have learned a valuable lesson.
Despite the drama that has been associated with this moment, Brown said he is in no hurry to rush his decision. He says he will announce his college choice on April 30 as he decides between Georgetown, Stanford, Harvard and Yale.
